    I know I will be at work counting down the minutes like a mad man.

    I work Friday 12:00 till 23:00 and Saturday 09:00 am till 20:00.  Si I will mostlikely only be around on Sunday. Not bummed though because its just a beta event. I jsut want to check out the clan controls.

    This man speaks the truth....  I did however take the day off anyway...   Need to make sure I'm totally prepared for this.

    I have disowned my friends and family and stocked up my fridge (which is next to my bed along with my gaming rig).  Still need to think about character names..  Well i've got about 12 hours to kill so no rush.

    I've got a funny feeling its not going to go all that smoothly, but this is what testing is for  :)

    You should be able to just log on once it starts.

    Last one in is a rotten egg!

     

    Be prepared for problems... the US has a 3rd world network that can't handle any significant amount of traffic. Even if ArenaNet is prepared for the rush, the fail internet companies that connect you to them probably aren't.

    All you need to educate yourself on telling time everywhere.



    Well I don't know about everywhere.  In Tanzania they've got a wierd quirk in how they comunicate the time.  Instead of going by the noon/midnight pm/am convention we use they go by the sun.  In Tanzania the sun typically rises around 6am and sets around 6pm all year long.  So this leads to our 7am to be their 1, our 8am to be their 2, etc.  Both are refering to the same hour of the day, just in different ways.

    If the countdown is right on guildwars2.com then it says 10 hours before beta starts = before you can log in. And that means here in denmark, we can't log in before 21:00 pm. Lol man that's late, i'm glad it's weekend :-P
