THis is it the clock has now locked in. No longer does it circle if you set the time backwards or forward. The clock is being set by their server time now so it should rotate to a new site when it runs out this time.

We have 5 hours 24 minutes til a new site opens.

No problemo - script seems to be the same flash, they've just updated it. The little reboot icons flash like a countup (one appears then two, then three etc and then it repeats)

I've loaded the page in both IE and Opera as well as Firefox and they all have the same flash showing as above - maybe its just us who have gone over the due time that sees this particular flash sequence until the countdown really reaches 0??

lol eb

Actually if you reload the page and watch really closely you can see the 00 figures appear briefly before it goes to the Binomes at Work flash, so I reckon that's exactly what it is, once you've already reached 00 it switches to a different flash image.

Dungeons and Dragons made a lot of fans p'oed and killed their site for a whole day last year when they did a countdown like this. A huge amount of traffic visited the site and the countdown automatically refreshed the browser when it ran out. The site basically sent itself a Denial of Service attack when it refreshed at least 10,000+ browsers causing the server to receive a butt load of ping requests at once crashing the site for over a day ruining their big announcement of D&D 4.0. Here's hoping this doesn't happen to ReBoot.

Edit: I hope the Binomes At Work is just a placeholder till after midnight sometime, Pacific time zone at worst, otherwise its going to be the D&D 4.0 launch again. Fans tore Wizards of the Coast a knew one after the debacle that happened with their 4.0 site relaunch. A countdown that ends up as a Maintenence or Temporary out of order page is the worst thing a company can do for a hyped online site launch. Though it was funny as hell reading Wizard's message board that day.
