Not me.  I'm not a zombie-fest fan.

Last time round, it was released at 3pm
No idea when it'll be released this time, and there's rumours that the linux servers might be delayed...
whether that matters or not depends on whether or not it's set up on the boxes NE owns and humbug controls (windows) or on the box 127 controls and gives the use of to NE (linux)

Yup, but not much.  Fun, but not as much as other games I don't have enough time to play.

Nope, I found out this morning after I woke up(4am).
Turned on the old puter tried running the demo and I was told that I had to restart steam client.
I did and was raring to go when I noticed the new relase time and then it started to download the demo again.
Must have been some major boo boo or hacker or both.
Silly Valve to screw things up at the last minute.

bit miffed they haven't even bothered to announce/apologise to paying customers as to  why it has been quietly delayed twice in 12 hours   , or why we have to download it again.  >:(
