    Yep. Still kicking myself for trying to arrange work and travel arrangements before RSVPing. Next time, I RSVP and then figure out how to get there!

    Yup. That's what I did. Once I read bonnie's post about how you should RSVP right away as it would likely close. I said, "Screw it. I'll cancel if I can't make it work."

    I'm sitting in the same chair as I was 865 days ago on a quiet Friday night when I decided "now" was a good time. Driving home today it struck me ... IT'S TODAY TODAY IS THE DAY :biggrin:. Maybe I'll just go ALL CAPs for a while

    YEEEEEAAHHHH!!

    A bit over 2 hours to go. I have my snacks and stuff ready in case it starts late (probably) and I get hungry.

    So, does anyone expect Elon to start on time tonight?

    In one of the threads awhile ago (I think it was in the Investor's sub-forum), someone compared Elon Musk to Axl Rose (lead singer of the infamous 80's rock band Guns 'n Roses) with regards to Model X. Axl Rose announced the 'Chinese Democracy' album in 1999, but didn't ship it until 2008.

    :eek:

    In this context, Elon's slightly less than 2-year delay on Model X seems as timely as a Swiss Watch.

    Anyways, Axl Rose had a reputation for showing up late to his concerts. Sometimes he didn't show up at all, which resulted in riots, fires, and general destruction from outraged fans. Some of my friends were witnesses and/or participants in these events.

    I'm thinking Elon will be anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes late.

    I'll be surprised if anything is "happening" before 8:00

    In a recent CNN/Gallup poll, zero percent of people expected Elon to start on time.

    I hope so - the invitation time was a half hour before the webcast starts so maybe they've built in that for tardiness :)

    Really? It was Bonnie who told us ALL that there would be no event.
