Apple is still working on getting me down there. They're going to be contacting a different work visa organization (CDS) to see if they can get me through that way.
I've also contacted a local company to see if I can get a Plan B lined up. It won't be the end of the world if none of these options pans out, I'll just sell off some of my stocks to keep me fed until next year.
Needless to say, though, I'm thoroughly annoyed.
