The "reasonable amount of time" between when I sent that order and when I 
became aware of the problem was about 11 hours, 8 of which I spent asleep. 
Only 19 minutes elapsed between when Kyle sent his orders and when I sent a 
message to the list about the problem. I would not call that dawdling. I 
could hardly have reacted in less time. Since I believed I had put the 
corps where I had intended, the only ways for me to become aware of this 
mistake were for someone to do something which affected that corps or for 
me to try moving it next month. So I do not agree that the orders are 
sufficiently far in the past that they should not be corrected, especially 
since the problem was caught at the first possible opportunity. The only 
decisions which rely on the position of the corps are Kyle's land orders, 
and no other actions have yet been taken which depend on those.
