    i won't be able to help, sadly. The keynote is on at 1 AM here, and I have a physics exam tomorrow :(

    maybe i'll leave a MR page open :)

    We rarely even get close to the record until the front page is restored to normal, so hold on to your hats (in a bit...)

    Cool, it's fun breaking records! It reflects great on MacRumors though as being a place where more and more people want to come to for their latest Mac news in cases like this. :cool:

    Yup. 6,419 users is now the high-water mark.

    The people from Guinness will need signed statements from each of us to verify that it's a MacRumors world record.

    So why the big records today when there really wasn't any surprise news.

    Because there's always no end of people who thoroughly enjoy bitching about the lack of "any surprise news". :p ;) :cool:

    i'd say we learned a lot more about Leopard, certainties perhaps, but answered some questions too. good keynote imo.

    and its awesome to see the record broken! hopefully it'll keep being broken come events.

    I'd be interested in seeing how other mac related sites, like appleinsider, did today.

    Nothing really to do with what was announced I believe - just that we had a better setup this time so more people could get online. I'm sure on previous occasions the record would have been set much higher if the capacity was there. We're slowing working out the bottlenecks :)
