Very good post but it's not completely accurate though.

Business times vary with each business.

It could be anything, 9-6, 9-5, 9-4, 8-5. I personally haven't come across any business hours of 8-4 However there is one company who's business hours are 10-3.

Like I said that is a great post and it's epic that you took the time to write it up but at the same time the information may not be accurate.

I think it's best to wait for Kier, Mike or Ashley to state the business times - Of course that's if they intent to.

The generally accepted office hours in the uk are 9 - 5, Ive never seen anyone define them as 8 - 4 before. (I work neither, I do 10 - 6 ;))

If it's a UK business then the "office" hours are anywhere from 0700 to 2000, plus some work later in the evening after dinner and a few hours at weekends.

And make sure you take your laptop on holiday with you so you can "log in just to check emails".

Standard UK office howevers are 9AM - 5PM. Having said that, some London businesses near me have opted to do 8AM - 4PM or 10AM - 6PM. But no STANDARD business would be 7AM - 8PM.

I just put Fox Clocks on FF so I know when to start lurking :). Makes it quite easy being in DST as well as Britain, 9am = 9pm here :).

Wonder if I'll make it to work on the 6th?????

This all does not matter one bit.

They will go "ok, I think it's ready to go on sale, [click]" and announce it.
Then, the 24 hours start. Regardless of time zone.

Yeah true, but i got a really busy schedule that day. Between classes and traveling, it's going to be a nightmare. I just hope my smartphone gets a decent signal for me to be able to order it.
