Question It's Thursday, where are the drivers?

Ok, it's not like I've been checking the nVidia site every 20 minutes or so since it turned midnite...more like every 30.

Anyone have any idea what time of day they normally cut lose with the goods? When do they usually make press announcements and such?

(YES, I am incredibly impatient...that and I don't have any fellow geeks in real life to whine to.)

Yep, I'm on East Coast and it's 9:30 AM here, so I don't expect them to be out until 4-6 PM

What? What WHAT?!?! Do you seriously mean to tell me that I will have to wait an additional 5-6 hours for these puppies just 'cause I choose to live on the non-flakey side of the country?!?!? (BTW-That's a joke, I love to take digs at the left-coasters! )

Ok, who wants to help me whine here.


EDITED BITS: I put "right-coasters" instead of "left-coasters" Blame it on nVidia for keeping me up all night hitting the damned "refresh" button and not enough coffee yet this morning. (I'm only on my second pot!)

Talking This is kindof exciting....

I'm getting goosebumps in anticipation

Of course, I don't have a real life or any real non-cyber friends, so this kind of stuff will thrill me for at least a week
