The Final Countdown and no waiting in line

We have added the Europa countdown clock to eclipse.org home page.   According to Denis, the plan is to have the downloads live at 9:00amET Friday June 29.   Last year we were 6-7 hours past this time, so it will be interesting to see how close we can get this year.

And for those individuals who are counting down to the availability to that other launch, the advantage of Europa is that you don’t have to wait in line and you can use Eclipse right away. 🙂

    What, no music with the countdown clock?

    There’s the perfect cheesy 80s song to go along with it.

  2. Just like Kim, I can’t think of anything else but “Europe” when you say Final Countdown.

    “It’s the final countdown!!!!!!!!”

    We did talk about having a clock like they do on the TV show 24. We could then have pictures of project leaders, Bjorn, Denis, Nathan in the split screens.

    I do like the Europe reference, kind of goes with Europa.
