They've changed the day/time... It's now 1:36am EDT, Tuesday Aug. 25th. No reason that I could find for the change.

Have to dvr this launch...

Weird, because that was the day and time a couple of days ago, and I changed it in my schedule to what was posted here after I saw the HD-Net timer appear.

Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot...

I hope all goes well with the tank seals this time and there aren't any big delays...and hopefully no weather delays.

Night launches are nice, but I prefer the daytime launches...then their spacewalk schedule isn't during our sleep time...

Should be a spectacular night-time launch tonight on HDNet!

So far no issues, except for a boat or something spotted within few miles.

Yep - testing was completed this evening, valve was successfully cycled open/closed 5 times and indications point to it being a telemetry problem. Mission Management Team meets at 1 PM EDT tomorrow to go over the test results - assuming they find it acceptable, we'll have a launch early Friday morning (or late Thursday night, depending on where you are).
