I clicked it because I didn't know what the "countdown" was and was curious.... As for posting about it, well I tried very hard to say that I'm not criticizing anyone else for their excitement over it, I just think the whole countdown thing and the hype over at the FM forums (yes, I checked out the link) is kinda overblown. I mean, its not a game, its just a benchmark tool with some fancy graphics. Yes, I'm looking forward to checking it out, but spending hours trying to figure out the secret of the countdown clock is a bit much for me.

But hey, This wasn't a personal attack on anyone. If thats what you are looking forward to, then I'm excited for ya...
