    Yeah, I'm a little ticked. There are many worse things out there, granted, but I was looking forward to this!

    It was really hard to get in. We finally found an alternative link that worked. I'm sure they will post it tomorrow.

    Getting up at 4 am (UK) for this and then by 4:30 still not getting into the live stream was frustrating, Thanks to Citizen-T who posted the "la." link I saw the second half but not the reveal itself.

    I know that they'll post it later but, like I said, I've been looking forward to it. I got the kids in bed early and invited my dad (another Model S res. holder) over to watch because I've got a computer hooked up to my TV. It's not like it's lost time; I ended up chatting with my dad which was nice because we don't get to do that very often.

    Anyway, this is starting to sound like whining... even to me... so I'm going to cut it out. :redface:

    Wonder how it will handle the possible onslaught of reservations tomorrow... Now that could be costly.

    GeorgeB is a really personable guy; he keeps a good eye on all of us here :smile: and instantly knew who we (AnOutsider, me, dsm363) were when we chatted him up and mentioned our handles!

    Here's a partial explanation:

    Although, you could ask why they weren't ready for it.

    Seriously. Hopefully they'll know better for the next release. I know that I'm going to be really interested in the mass-market car, not because I think that I'll buy one (hopefully I'll have an S and an X by the time its available) but because it is what's going to make or break Tesla in the long term.

    Yeah, given the production values, you'd think they would have had a better stream.

    They should rent a satellite transponder next time. Can't rely on this newfangled IP rubbish...
