    For those of us without access to Satellite dishes or access to a broadcast location, when an apple event comes out we have to depend on the internet. I personally enjoy the hubbub of the event and the scrambling to find out everything as it happens.

    I just want to thank Arn for fighting with IRC crashes and scrambling to post everything for us as he found out. I personally was in IRC on EFNet listening to a mirrored posting of what was being posted on Kronos net which I couldn't get in to.

    I had a great time, and really enjoyed the event. Thanks Arn for putting forth the effort! Keep up the good work!

    Couldn't agree more

    This site rocks, and was THE place to be for the play-by-play. Kudos to all involved...I'm proud to be a member.

    Appriciate all of your time and effor. MRhat worked great.

    Only bad thing is halfway through the event today I stopped getting updates and could no longer connect to the net. I'm on DSL and I call the phone company (I was at home today) execpt the phone wasn't working either. About 5 minutes later the phone rings. It's the phone tech guy informing me that the phone was working again. Thanks.

    I appreciate the thanks guys...

    There were a lot of people who stepped up this time though - the IRC ops... (especially Knox really provided a lot of tech support during the IRC issues.) the people who volunteered to provide audio feeds etc...

    I think MacRumors/Chaosmint could have been better configured... so for next time. :)

    This was definitely the largest and most anticipated Mac event that I was a part of... and I think the rumors actually held up pretty well... with notable (but not surprising) exceptions.

    Yes, I enjoyed both the IRC coverage and coverage from the chaosmint.

    You did an outstanding job arn. Thank you. It does not go unapreciated. Keep up the good work.

    I would also like to thank those who helped with the news coverage. I'm not quite sure exactly of who they were, but thanks anyways :).
