    I prefer cmd R. And if it starts at midnight, it will be midnight PST. But I'm gonna go with the 9am EST. Can't have Apple reps spend the night at their jobs. We shall see

    Guys, the Apple Store hasn't even gone down yet. It's down typically 30 minutes to an hour or longer while they deploy the changes to the web site and THEN it comes up ready to accept orders.

    My guess is that it'll be no sooner than 0300 EDT -- and if not then, then no earlier than 0700 EDT. The trick is to keep an eye on the Apple Store -- as soon as it goes down, it should be less than an hour before you can order anything.

    8.5 hours later...

    eldy is still mashing on F5 and the iPhone pre-order site still isn't up.


    My bet: 9:00am eastern/ 6:00am pacific

    But you nutty people have fun mashing on F5 all night long! :rolleyes:

    I believe that the AT&T servers operate in the central time zone.

    Went down stating that they are updating and will be back shortly. Within 3 minutes it was back up. Quick ass update. I just bought the first iphone that came up!

    I have a simple auto-refresh script, every 61 seconds...

    I slapped it on my Desktop as refresh.html, hit it with Safari, and will sit here till I pass out. or get bored. Whichever comes first.


    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="61">
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <script language="JavaScript">
    var countDownInterval=60;
    var c_reloadwidth=200
    </script>
    <ilayer id="c_reload" width=&{c_reloadwidth}; ><layer id="c_reload2" width=&{c_reloadwidth}; left=0 top=0></layer></ilayer>
    <script>
    var countDownTime=countDownInterval+1;
    function countDown(){
    countDownTime--;
    if (countDownTime <=0){
    countDownTime=countDownInterval;
    clearTimeout(counter)
    window.location.reload()
    return
    }
    if (document.all)
    document.all.countDownText.innerText = countDownTime+" ";
    else if (document.getElementById) 
    document.getElementById("countDownText").innerHTML=countDownTime+" "
    else if (document.layers){ 
    document.c_reload.document.c_reload2.document.write('Next <a href="javascript:window.location.reload()">refresh</a> in <b id="countDownText">'+countDownTime+' </b> seconds')
    document.c_reload.document.c_reload2.document.close()
    }
    counter=setTimeout("countDown()", 1000);
    }
    
    function startit(){
    if (document.all||document.getElementById)
    document.write('Next <a href="javascript:window.location.reload()">refresh</a> in <b id="countDownText">'+countDownTime+' </b> seconds')
    countDown()
    }
    
    if (document.all||document.getElementById)
    startit()
    else
    window.onload=startit
    
    </script>
    <iframe src ="http://www.apple.com/iphone/" width="100%" height="1200">
    
    </body>
    </html>
