Tick Tock! Tick Tock!

Yes, the legendary Next Big Update is still planned for tomorrow (Saturday) morning. If all goes well, by this time tomorrow, I'll be on the NEXT Next Big Update. =) Actually, I'll probably take a break from big updates and start doing lots of little ones. Maybe even make a couple of new themes.

I've decided to leave the AQ Marketplace open for one extra day. I've already changed the code on my development machine that will close the marketplace, but I figured I'll let that change go in at the same time I do the update. Why worry about such a little update today when it'll fix itself with the big update tomorrow? So for you slackers you there, you have one more day to put in your order. At least until I shut down the site tomorrow morning. And the code on my development machine already has the marketplace closed, so there will be NO MORE extensions! Once the code goes live, the marketplace will be closed. =)

I haven't been finding quite so many bugs in the update today as I did yesterday, and the bugs that are showing their ugly heads have been relatively minor. The ones yesterday could have been show stoppers if I didn't get them fixed! The feature I think will likely case the most trouble has been getting a serious pounding today, and it's holding up far better than I had hoped. Things are looking good! =)

You can't see me, but I'm rubbing my hands with glee. *rubbing hands* At least in between each sentence I type. *more rubbing hands, with glee* Very exciting. *rubbing hands together*

I don't have a set time I plan to take AQ down tomorrow morning. Whenever I wake up and finish breakfast. I don't plan to set an alarm clock, though, so whenever I'm ready to do the update, I'll give about a half hour warning. Give me a chance to read all the message boards, reply to AQ mail, etc., before the site goes down and the update begins. If I had to guess, I'd say somewhere between 9 and 10 in the morning (Pacific time), but it could be earlier if I wake up early or later if I sleep in especially late.

Oh, I can't wait to check it out. But I'll have to wait - I start voluteering at the Museum of Science & Industry tomorrow morning. I'll start up my computer first thing when I get home. :D Ditto what Nitrocat said- thanks!

Oh good... .I'll already be out and about letterboxing by 9 a.m. PT.... since it will be 12 p.m. here (actually, I'll be at rehearsal, but leaving for letterboxing from the rehearsal). How long do you think the site will be down for?

Yippee! Looking forward to all the tweaks and twitches! I can hardly wait to see what all the changes are. It's like the night before christmas.....Thanks!

I hope the site will only be down for an hour or so, but sometimes updates take longer than anticipated. *shrug* No promises, but my expectations is for the site to be down for about an hour.

What are you volunteering to do, Trekkie? =)
