The Orange Box Midnight Madness

This week's Steam marketing message reassures those purchasing The Orange Box over Steam will have access to the shooter bundle at the stroke of Midnight Pacific time on Wednesday:
We'll be unlocking The Orange Box products just after midnight Pacific time next week on the 10th of October. Lots of people have been having a lot of fun with the Team Fortress 2 beta, so we're looking forward to seeing what people think of Portal and Episode Two. The Orange Box will also be available at North American game retailers later on the 10th, for both PC and XBOX 360.

I always think of midnight as the end of the day (11:59PM going into 12:00AM) and anything past 12:00AM (even by one second) as morning. Usually prefaced with an "early."
That's why Valve made clear in earlier announcements that it would be unlocked 12:01am on October 10th - adding that extra minute makes it a whole lot less confusing (even though to me it is common sense).
