Clicked on it and it wasn't valid. But they just emailed me this a few minutes ago. Now if I will only receive Tiger today!

My link does the same. I'd imagine they won't push it live until 6pm (when Tiger is 'unleashed').

In my email, the link is actually to "http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/A". That doesn't seem at all right to me; I would assume that there would be some dynamically-generated key that would track the number of times I accessed the seminar. However, I could just be off and Apple randomly picked "A" as the address for the seminar and they will verify eligibility/accesses by requiring an Apple Store login.

Yes, I think it will verify our identity with our Apple Store account.

Edit: I obviously can't handle subtracting 3 hours from my current time (EST). Thanks for the correction. It's currently 8:19 here so the seminar should start in ~11 minutes.

I have Tiger/got the link too. The weird thing is that it says starting at 5:30 am PST I can access the seminar. It's 6:30 am PST right now and I still get an error when clicking the link.

No, it's 5:15 PST.

Remember, PST is 3 hours behind EST

I actually read the email this time and it states you must have Tiger loaded before doing the seminar. So this Windows 2000 cpt at work won't do me any good. Doesn't appear my Tiger order will arrive today. Seems like Apple is conducting LIFO for delivering Tiger. That sux.

So what is it!?? Is that what it's not? Tell us what it is! I can't access it either - application not found on this server. I want to watch. Please. My girlfriend is here and my credibility is on the line.
She thinks I'm a fool

I have tger, and it is still not working.

I am weighing up whether to keep trying, or head to the hospital where my sister is giving birth. It is a tough call. Maybe they have a wireless network there. haha

tvguru,

How did you go through the phone menu? There is no obvious way to make it through the choices to get to the link.
