New Firmware Countdown...

It's already past 6am on June 2nd in Tarawa, Kiribati. Where's our firmware? :)

Current local time in Tarawa - Kiribati

(Hopefully, the June 2nd date is real. I've seen it quoted many places, but it's not 100% clear that June 2nd is the official date.)

I hope the release isn't from Apia, Samoa. They have more than sixteen hours to go before midnight...
Current local time in Apia - Samoa

It's approaching midday June 2nd in this neck of the woods; clearly this firmware update business is a charade, pure shenanigans, mischief, a prank, tomfoolery, not going to happen guys...

Let's make do with auto-exposure.

Hmmm... Jon stop being so reasonable and utterly fair minded.

I was just trying to get a low quality joke in before the release arrives. It's just so sad the Japanese are unaware Wellington is the centre of the universe. Why couldn't they just this once do a 4am start to the day?

They should automate it - in servers around the globe. Godzilla could eat Tokyo, and we'd still get our firmware. (And then we'd fly to Japan with our cameras to film a Godzilla documentary...)

Heck, I wanted it at zero hour in Tarawa, Kiribati. That place is a virtual time machine!
