To recap, here's where we currently are:
Here are the Round 2 games that are confirmed to be in progress:

bigjimou (US) vs Holsten-Knight (USSR)
me (US) vs irishdomer08 (USSR)
Baelnor (US) vs whovian223 (USSR)
Snotty128 (US) vs SleepingGiant (USSR)

Finished:
hardco (US) defeated skoptic (USSR)
JammaTal (USSR) defeated john_l (US)

What's everyone's status today?

Challonge handles all the record keeping for Swiss format very well, which is pretty handy to be sure. But unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way to modify the bracket after a tournament gets started. I tried to switch geigerm9 with rinelk and Empt with JaneHatke so that geigerm9 vs blackfire1929 and JaneHatke vs Kolbex can play. This would set up rinelk vs Ferret96 and Empt vs Cgareth to... what? Tie each other by default? And there's no way to record a proper result for geigerm9 vs blackfire1929 or JaneHatke vs Kolbex. Hmmm. The only way out seems to be to award Round 2 default victories (or byes, if you will) to geigerm9, blackfire1929, JaneHatke, and Kolbex. That will keep the math and brackets straight. (And future rounds would presumably include "byes" for players matched up with rinelk, Ferret96, Empt, and Cgareth.) But that's only necessary if Challonge is used to track this tournament. We certainly don't have to let that dictate the matchups. What are everyone else's thoughts? Just trying to keep things manageable, fair, and most importantly FUN.

Nice win! It was a terrible feeling being down by 15 points, holding the Asia scoring card with you dominating the area, with my only other cards being 1 op cards.

I feel if we are sidelining that many people for however long round 2 is going to take, we'll have even less people interested in playing round 3...

Zebracadabra and myself are going into semi-cold mid-war right about now (late round 3)

I tend to agree. And because of the way Swiss format pairing works, there's no way to start Round 3 matchups until Round 2 is finished.
