Since I can't seem to avoid the DVDTalk Olympic threads even though I know they're mostly populated by EDT folks, I guess I will avoid being spoiled on the results that night.

Uh oh. I sure hope "maintenance" isn't a euphemism for adding contextual advertising.

5 pm PST is 6 pm PDT and 9pm EDT

Not much sun at that time of night or anything else for that matter.

I'm in Oregonzola. we'll have sun until around 9pm. Methinks the admin didn't know the difference between PST and PDT.

5pm?!?! I'm going to have to go an entire 90 minutes at work without the forum? Oh well, maybe I'll finally get something done for once.

I'm pretty sure the maintenance is to increase the disk space so that the "It's Okay. My Child Is In The Car" thread can continue.

There's this woman who lives in my house and claims to be married to me. I think I'll investigate this situation.

I'll be out to dinner with my mom after coming home from the White Sox day game, so no biggie. I'll probably be playing the new Rock Band DLC afterwards (yes I'm a lucky PS3 owner who doesn't get it until Thursday).
