    I briefly considered writing a Perl script that would basically do the following (in pseudocode):

    Code:
    while(1){
        UpdateTF;
        if(UpdateActuallyHappened)
            break;
        `sleep 60s`;
    }
    startServer;

    Aye, I was going to do something like that, but I didn't really expect to have to wait so long :p

    I've just been clicking "check for Steam client updates" under the 'file' drop-down menu. And NOTHING.

    Restarting Steam does nothing.

    But still not playable.

    That would most likely be the linux binaries.

    The Beta is probably imminent, now. But it's too late for me to play it. XD

    I think the quick little load thing by TF2 is nothing more than a quick check of how much is loaded, nothing more.

    I think I stopped caring without noticing :|

    I drew the short straw out of three people to sit up waiting to up our server as soon as it's ready.... ticking over 5:30am UK time :(

    Careful, we're living in a time where all you need to do is post a one word reply saying;

    And 500 guests viewing the forums will instantly restart Steam mindlessly muttering d-d-d-d-d-ustbowl.

    For some reason I think back to the "Meet the Engineer" video.

    I picture the engineer as Gabe, and everyone running towards him are the hungry TF2-beta fans desperate to get their hands on the game.

    But no, the turrets keep the fanboys at bay and the kill-counter beside Gabe ticks over every now and then. :)

    i can stay up as late as I have to to play but it's not going to be the 17th for much longer. Definitely deceptive advertising. If they would have said the 18th it would make more sense.

    ErikJ entered chat.
    ErikJ: Hello Shacknews group.
    ErikJ: How come it is so crowded in here?
    mooglebean: WE'RE WAITING FOR SOMETHING
    ErikJ: We're really close, just a few issues with the linux server.
    ErikJ: We just released the Win32 server, so if people are running those, they can get started.
    ErikJ: If we don't make it with linux in the next hour or two, we'll just fire away with what we have and get linux out as soon as we can."
