Anyone staying up all night to be ready whenever the beta comes out?

*raises hand* :D

I think you should reconsider that. The developers probably live on a different continent than you, which means that their Monday morning is probably far off from your Monday morning.

I expect that for those of us in America, it'll be out around Monday night/Tuesday morning.

Shucks, gotta wait another day. I was actually half-joking about the staying up part. Just wanted to share in the [already intense] enthusiasm!

Yup, I'm trying to cut down on my anticipation by not coming to the website as often. I think I'm down to like 3-4 times a day. I even live in South Korea, which makes the "Monday" thing even more cruel. It's been Monday here for 17 hours!

I wish I could do that... I'm at about 3/4 times an hour, and that's quite a struggle. I wonder if any of the devs got any sleep last night? This is worse than christmas :P

ba it seems twitter has something against me....can't view the status update of the dd beta.

Ah the wait is so nerve wrecking. That and being in the dark knowing that just any minute the dd beta is released.

When they said Monday as a release date, they probably meant their Monday. It's unfortunate since most of us are in the US, or at the very least not in South-Africa.

I'm sure it'll be out some time today (assuming they don't have any technical issues). We've waited this long, we can wait a few more hours. ;)

I've checked all of their twitter accounts and all of the usual threads/blogs/pages and there is no news.

At the time of posting this, it's 4 PM in Cape Town, so we should be hearing something from them 2 - 3 hours from now.

They are from cape town =)
Incidently capetown is in the same time zone as I live in just a lot further south than i am. making it now about quarter past 5pm.
That said they may have ment monday morning somewhere else on the planet i supose :P
America is like 9-10 hours behind iirc, so technically its still monday morning somewhere on the planet, just not in their own home town =)
