December 17, 2009, 4:30 PM Pacific.

That's the last possible non-holiday Thursday of the year. Thursday was the traditional release day for MOUL and late afternoon was the norm.

Roughly 50 days after the mystery coder submits the work to Cyan, at which point Chogon will (if not that day the next) let us know on the forums, and we'll get a spike in activity. There will be a lot of wondering, then dwindling to silence as we wait for them to "finish the code and tidy things up" as he'll probably put it. Then.. more silence.


Then suddenly BAM we'll be caught by surprise when Chogon announces it. At which point no one will know because the forums will crash within the next half hour. With that the download server will *also* crash under heavy load. It'll be up to the community websites to keep up to the moment links to the mirrors, which will become redundant (but kept) by the next day.



Then it'll dwindle off again to a quiet murmur of actual active projects for the code/ages/etc, and a lot of people still coming to ask how they get it despite the 20 stickied posts on every forum and board possible, each one to be noted "go see here" and closed by mods :P

All that and you just left us hanging with no date?

I feel like I just watched an episode of Twin Peaks or X-Files. You know - the one with "all the answers."

I had been hoping for the five year anniversary of Until Uru (Aug 7, 2004). Looks like it will probably be this fall. I'll say October 16th, as that's when my fall "busy season" finishes in the CPA world of preparing tax returns extension.

If we're guessing dates I'll pick November 13th since it's my birthday. I've picked it before for release date guessing games and got it right so maybe my luck will rub off on Uru, too. ;)

Wow! Did you guys just see that pig fly by the window? :shock: Must be today!

But seriously. Not this year. Sorry. Maybe in 2010. Spring-ish.Hope I'm wrong (in the good sense). :wink:

I did give a date! I gave a floating date based upon when our mystery former Cyantist has the time to get to what's needed and sends it to Cyan! This way I can be vaguely accurate still! :D


Ok, ok, if you really want an actual date.. March 2010. About the middle of the month, say the 17th. That sounds like a nice day.
With luck I'll be utterly wrong on that by a scale of a half a year (and that is it'll be half a year *earlier* not *later*) and still be right on my full prediction.


You're just nitpicking on my lack of date cause you know my prediction is pretty accurate otherwise about the spike, silence, then announcement and subsequent server crashes :lol:

We'll get the code before Sharper runs out of space in his notebook.

(Not that we could add entries anyway...moving right along...)

That would be St. Patrick's Day. Are you trying to give SuperGram a heart attack? She'll need a few weeks lead time to organize the annual parade. If we're not in Uru by then, I'm sure she'll plan it for SL again and then you would steal her thunder by having the code released that day? :shock:

How inconsiderate. :P

I'm a little surprised he didn't feel safer betting on December 22, 2012.

:P

Btw, 20,000 quatloos on my bet!
