When I checked out the website at around 12:00pm Eastern Time today, I saw what looked like a backwards clock counting down. By backwards, I mean that the digits in the countdown were literally reversed. It wasn't that hard to figure out what the clock said. I reversed the numbers digit-by-digit; this clock had about seven hours left. Then, at about 7:30pm ET, I saw a Twitter post about the site being updated.
I checked it out, and sure enough, there was new content available, and the timer was now counting down from a much higher number: about 165 hours. Here's what the clock looked like about 55 minutes ago, along with a flipped version.
The times all fit, and if it really is a site refresh countdown, it makes sense that it would "reset" to a large number immediately after an update.
Using a date calculator, I believe I've figured out when the next TFU II teaser site update will take place. Based on my calculations (performed at 8:15pm), the site will update again on Wednesday, June 23, 2010 at 5:30pm. You can use the tool at that link to track future updates.
Now if only we could predict what the updates would be!
Special thanks to my Twitter friend Leakime for his help putting this together!
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
