I guess I am perhaps too anxious but when on March 18, today, is the release do? The release page http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/beta1
shows me "You are not authorized to access this page." as of 6:53 PM EST US which is GMT - 4. So is the release due by midnight GMT on the 18th?
Sorry but Katastrophic Koala is killing me and I have a spare hard drive just waiting to try beta 1 on my 64 bit quad core powerhouse PC.
