    Has anybody else noticed that the dates for release seem to slip back and forth? I was going to post up a new change but when I went back to the page it had reset to the original. For example, AA3 coming out on the 18th was the 17th briefly today, and is now again the 18th. Most unusual!

    I wonder if it has something to do with timezones and the server time day ticking over and catching up to me in Oz. Hmmm...

    I find it best not to assume any date is correct until you can actually play/purchase it.

    Well following Australian conventions for writing dates (dd-mm-yy) consecutive numbers in the time and date only happens eight times a century; 01:02:03 04-05-06 > 08:09:10 11-12-13.

    And Henry, next one is in 2109 ... =p

    2012, and technically its the end of one age and the start of the next; which is typically accompanied by some sort of catastrophic event.

    Feeling ignored Dx :(
    Dates looks fine to me.

    The Zombie apocalypse of course.

    Which reminds me, I tried to borrow World War Z from the library recently - not available. Checked various local bookshops - sorry don't stock it. Seems I have to order it if I want to borrow / buy it. sigh. Maybe a trip to the big smoke tomorrow will meet with better success.

    Perhaps I wasn't clear with my shorthand ... I meant there was one such "consecutive numbers" occasion in '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12, '13 of each century.

    The next time Henry's example would occur is in 2109, not 3009.

    If by that you mean life is the end game content we're playing, my end game content is boring and unfulfilling, and the upgrades suck! Can I cancel my subscription? :p
