I got the deadlines all mixed up! It said friday night that we had forty eight hours left, but now it says the deadline's passed? The deadline 11:59 pm on sunday the 21st makes no sense either, because the 21st is a saturday. Can someone shed some light on this? If we got the topics friday night then we should have until sunday night, right?

The deadline isnt until Sunday night. You still have a little over 21 hours.

Sunday is the 21st. And the countdown clock is still ticking down.

I think the countdown clock gets confused.  I had it run out too, but it fixed itself when I refreshed the page.

Tell me about it ... It's now Monday morning here, right Ebelie? ... the deadline will be 2.00pm ... I live in a constant state of Confusion down here ... Victoria, actually ... and don't get me started with daylight savings!  I've put a NY clock on my iGoogle page so I can check that.

Yep, 2pm for us Victorianites.  I prefer the 2pm start/finish to midnight, but wish that didn't mean part of the writing time is taken up by work.  I'm off sick today, which is convenient for story finishing, but it's certainly not helping the quality of my story.

Oh I miss working part time!  Long weekends are the best.  Sickies aren't bad either, but I'm fighting off remnants of a migraine today.  At least I have a good excuse for why my story sucks.
