    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.

    At least, users can get a rough idea when at the earliest the sale might commence respective to their time zones.

    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".

    Can somebody adjust those hours to "beer thirty" in the US time zone?

    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 feel like I am "cheating" some how being on the US West Coast. Seems like I can have the software just after midnight on Oct 5th. I feel so special

    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.

    When will the 24 hours start? Don't know. We will do it as soon as we are ready, which is likely to be some time after 10am UK time (UTC+1) on Tuesday.

    What are you talking about? It's 24 hours no matter where you are in the world.

    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.
