Out of the Blue

Way too long after noticing how cold the weather was getting around here, I noticed that I still hadn't switched the screens for the storm windows all throughout the Blue Tower (and at 175 stories, that's a lot of windows). Anyway, if you are in my area, apologies for the further couple of degrees drop in temperature caused by my ceasing to heat the great outdoors for everyone.

Congrats to our buddy Ant on his new full-time job!

I'm thinking that they'll run it through time zones in hope that it'll spread the load out some. My guess is Valve is talking about 12am Pacific. Which means I can't unlock the game until 3am Eastern here and so on. They're still in for a hell of a load either way but anybody trying to authenticate on the west coast is going to have an easier time of it for the first hour anyway.
