2013-2014 fafsa?

It says on fafsa.ed.gov that the website will be down tonight from 8pm-1am and it will also be down the whole day on January 1st 2013 because the system is updating? Therefore, we can't submit/renew our 2013-2014 FAFSA till January 2nd. The school I'm attending says "2013-14 Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available starting January 2, 2013." Is anyone getting this too? I wanted to make sure I'm not the only one.

    It doesn't say that for me:

    The new FAFSA is coming! To make this change, FAFSA on the Web will be unavailable:
    Sunday, Dec. 30 from 12 a.m. ET through 7 p.m. ET
    Monday, Dec. 31 from 8 p.m. ET through 1 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 1

    Doesn't say anything about down all day on the 1st. But seriously, you can wait a few days and enjoy the holiday, watch some games or parades or whatever.
