    Nope, I am planning on sticking with SL until 7.1 :D
    Good luck, hope your install goes smoothly.

    Here is a quote from Apple:
    Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer told reporters and analysts during a conference call on Tuesday, when discussing his company's most-recent financial results.

    I can't really sleep either. Just keep Spotify cranked up, and slamming down some Coca-Cola, and Crush. :cool:

    I don't need to sleep as it's 7:58am here in the UK. I'm about to go to my Nan's house where the fast broadband is, but by the time 8:30amEST comes which is probably 4:30, I'll be back at home with sluggish broadband, not great for downloading 3.5GB.

    Still looking forward to the release of Lion.

    I can't sleep because work keeps waking me up.

    As for your Lion-induced insomnia, I'd kill for a life where the most significant thing that occurs was a minor software update was enough to cause loss of sleep. :rolleyes:

    You better hurry up and call Virgin or Sky or whatever and upgrade your Internet, ASAP! ;)

    I slept perfect last night :D. Now, I am waiting for Lion (in Spain, now it's Wednesday morning :)).

    ...I'm lost for words. Lion is hardly something to loose sleep over. I don't think any operating system is actually.

    I am not sleepy either and am rather activated, but that's only partially because of Apple. I do have to admit on nights when products have been rumored to come out such as the Air I'll check the ASO (Apple Store Online--I want to create that initialism if it isn't one already) a couple of times and I've checked the Mac App Store on nights when Lion was rumored to come out the next day.

    And I've checked both again tonight. I do follow Apple obsessively and I do get an increased anxiety/activation before product launches and keynotes, even though I am not that interested by the products themselves lately.

    I even used to have a lot of troubles on the days of keynotes when I would try to either watch the video that would always crap out or read the play by plays, it was like climaxing without ever getting anywhere, or getting there way too slowly after having waited way too long and I would actually get very anxious. I do, as I have mentioned, in other threads have anxiety issues (real anxiety disorders, not just the state of being stressed).

    I used to have the same issue in high school when I watched Mad TV. I would laugh so hard sometimes it would induce panic. Too much of a good thing.

    But I'm mostly wide awake for other reasons. 3:40 AM and I am brimming with energy and the most mental clarity I've had all day. I am in bad need of a day-night reversal.

    Could not sleep anyways, we are in dire need of a new mattress ever since the wardrobe fell on our sprung one.

    Off to shops today to buy a memory foam one :D hopefully fit it in the car :eek:

    Apple servers are going to commit suicide tomorrow.

    What time is the launch? I'm so out of the loop.

    Nobody knows the time for the release of Lion. Yet it has been confirmed to be today. 9am here in UK still nothing. I think it will be out around 5 or 6 pm somehow.

    I am very excited about it, yet I slept like a baby :)

    I see. I highly doubt it would be any time soon. Don't they usually go by Cupertino (California's) PST? My wild guess is anywhere from 8-10am here in the US, which is around evening in the UK , as you were predicting.

    Having used Lion for awhile now, apart from the fugly calendar trimming, I like OS X 10.7, but excited? It really isn't an exciting upgrade.

    IOS 5 is a lot more interesting.

    I'm hoping Jon Gruber's guess was right, and they'll release early morning - c5am PT, so about 1pm UK. The guy in the reseller's in Ireland said he'd been told to hold off till afternoon.

    They must surely be thinking about timing for relatively minimal strain on servers?

    Me too (except some random crow decided to "sing" behind my window and wake me too early…). In Finland it's almost noon. I wish Lion would be released while I'm still at work, it sure would download faster over 24 Mbps ADSL (we have 8 Mbps at home).

    I would be more excited about this - memory foam mattresses are awesome!

    Rumour has it that Apple are using it as a stress test of their new data centre before iCloud launches.
