It Is 9pm and Free Realms Remains Leashed April 28, 2009

Or Maybe Wednesday

Or Maybe Wednesday

At least the rodent looks apologetic.

I was able to get into the game at 11:30pm Pacific time. That was 1:30am for me. Not sure that really counts as a Tuesday launch, but I got in :)

Think it went up..but can’t check from work. Saw lots of happy faces on http://www.freerealmsforums.com though… grins as wide as that of the goblin exclaiming with sighs of relief “am in!!” and “it’s up, downloading at 60%” etc.

Did it really go live? I still see buttons on the front page that say “Sign Up For Beta!” and “Click here if you want a beta key!” A bit sloppy, but then SOE had advertised an unavailable EverQuest completion on the EQ page for nearly two years after it had ceased to be available. Something of a track record there I’d say.

But in the world of software development there is a long standing rule that as long as it happens by 11:59pm local time, it counts as that day. And you can petition for an exemption so long as you ship while it is still that day in Samoa and the Aleutians.

Yeah, that’s the joke we have with our support contact for our software vendor at work. He’ll tell us that the software will be available sometime in April, so we automatically pencil in 11:59pm on April 30.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
