Launch postponed

Just as I was advertising to the world the next Ariane 5 launch webcast via my twitter account, the webcast itself suddenly was replaced by a notice informing everyone that the launch has been postponed (official word here).

Apparently one of the launcher subsystems appears to have been acting up (not all that unusual in a rocket launch). A team is investigating the problem and hope to announce a new launch date soon.
