    Now this is just getting out of hand. Yes, we all want to know what will be announced tomorrow. Also, I believe (or did believe at one point) that we all had our own lives to be getting on with, too?

    I feel your pain I've got this brand new 23 inch Apple Cinema display sitting by my desk unopened (but purchased tax free) to see if I need to return it tomorrow for a new model. Come on Steve, give me a reason to spend $10 on gas tomorrow evening!!

    Here we go again...

    Timeline of my usual events for an Apple conference, all times are in AEST:

    10pm: Some sort of massive leak comes out and we all post madly about it.

    11pm: Someone figures out the leak must be fake and we all post madly about it.

    12am: The hour of silence as all the Americans try to grab a few hours sleep.

    1am: The east-coast of the US starts to wake up and post madly about the leak - the Europeans post endless "It's a fake, here's the link." posts, the Aussies who are awake begin to get incoherent in their posts (who me?).

    2am: The forums are brought to a halt by an influx of newbies asking what the chinese writing on this picture of a "Video I-Pod" means.

    3am: Kick-off, macrumourslive starts running their text updates, I fall asleep at least three times during the conference and wake up each time hoping I haven't missed anything cool.

    4am: Conference is either still going or winding down, if it's still going, I fall asleep yet again, if it's winding down I get a tab going and reloading apple.com/au till all the information comes online.

    5am: Conference is definitely over, forum may be flakey but online - hundreds are disappointed and vow to "wait for rev B" whilst hundreds more are refuting their claims of disappointment with long posts about money. I don't care because I'm asleep.

    11am: Wha? Who? Where? Oh yeah? Time to get up. Pack up laptop and hop down to the net café to watch the Quicktime movies that have appeared on the Apple site at proper speed (not dial-up).

    1pm: Lunch somewhere.

    2pm: Net café again for uninterrupted stream of keynote.

    3pm - 4pm: Reading forums for interesting tid-bits I'd missed, start thinking about a beer.

    5pm: Pub, pretending not to be a Mac nerd who has just stayed up most the night looking at websites.

    8pm: Home, dinner, hopefully not making the long distance call to Bourke on the porcelain telephone.

    Thus endeth Apple Conference Day. For MWSF add 2 hours to the time.

    That's a good plan.

    Tommorow my ass is going to be planted on this chair for the entire day. I might go the bathroom a few times, heck I might just pee on myself while Steve does his keynote.

    I'm really excited as well. I had surgery a couple of weeks ago and I am still in recovery, so I will have PLENTY of time tomorrow to do nothing but hang out on the forums and wait for the Keynote to be posted so I can watch it.

    I really wish Apple would still broadcast the Keynote in realtime so we don't have to wait to see the Keynote. I hate reading about the new products/demos without actually seeing what is happening. At the same time, it is just too hard to stay off of the forums. Blah!!

    Try some self-release it should take the edge off and allow you to walk in public. ;)
