    So what is everyone doing up until the Keynote?

    I'm at work, of course, with a meeting that *might* overlap the Keynote. In the meantime, I'm hanging out here, reading the rumors, and trying to get in the Apple spirit by "walking" around Infinite Loop! Woooooot :D January is like another birthday present.

    Just sitting in front of the TV and leaving Forum Spy on. Doesn't look to be anything exciting going on. Almost midnight here so there better be some good conversation going on soon or I'll be really board with Wednesday morning TV. :mad:

    No way! I was just about to post that I was going to watch 24 (last few eps of season 2) for a few hours before it all starts. But I've changed my mind and might try get a bit of sleep instead because I have to go to work in the morning (remember the keynote starts at 4am here :( ).

    You crazy daylight savings people, it's gonna be 3am up here. Doesn't make it any easier to stay up, granted. I should know, I did it last year :D The sun was coming up by the time I went to bed.

    Yeah, but it's great on New Year's Eve if you're in Tweed Heads or something, you can have midnight then get in the car and go have it again.

    Not that I am.

    We all know the reasons Qld. decided to go against DST don't we? The geniuses up there thought:

    1. The extra hour of sunlight would fade the curtains.
    2. Daylight Saving Time would confuse the cows.
    3. Getting up earlier would mean men got their morning erections on the bus to work instead of in bed.

    :D

    I'm working until 5pm, which is the time the keynote starts here in the UK.

    It takes about 10 minutes to get home so I'll be back in time for all the juicy bits.

    Haven't heard the erection one, nice. :D But honestly, crappy farmer excuses aside, what's so good about DS? Do you really need the sun to set at 8pm?

    When I was back in school in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It would set around 10pm It was great. Why wouldn't you want more daylight when your actually awake?
