Contest Alert: Guess the Time the Website Goes Live!

I just remembered, just now, while waiting for the grill to heat up, that the new HW Website was originally scheduled to go LIVE yesterday.

Wait, what? You didn’t know that we are getting a new Web site? Well maybe you’re part of the reason that we’re T Minus Zero + 21 hours and 14 minutes! Get your chair what s/he needs so they can light that candle!

More importantly, this offers us an opportunity for yet another in a long line of meaningless contests (in which, I’m 3 of 4 if my memory serves; Mathissexy got lucky once). And so here’s today’s contest question: When does the new Web site go live?

Put your answers in the comments (1 guess per person, date and time specific), and we’ll be playing “Price is Right rules” (if you’re over, you lose) until someone sees the new website live AND posts a comment saying so, thus ending the contest. Winner gets a hearty pat on the back, their choice for Monday Music, and a package  of paper to do with as they please.

I take Wednesday the 23rd at 4:18pm.

  1. I’ll be optimistic and submit Monday at 7:39pm, and 21 seconds.

    Edit: To avoid ambiguity, I mean Monday, November 21.

  2. Uh, All I can say is that with a major system upgrade going on TOMORROW affecting multiple areas, I totally downloaded my gradebook from Blackboard. Not that I’m paranoid, but better safe than sorry.

    • Yeah, that is probably paranoid, but in this case, “better paranoid than sorry.” I’m following your lead.

      • Yep paranoid….It doesn’t seem to be affecting BB. It looks like the website for CCC isn’t really allowing a lot of action this morning though.

  3. I’m not too optimistic. Can we also have a contest to see when departments will have access to their own sites?

      • Yes!!!!

        ESL will not go up until Saturday November 26th at 4:28pm.

        I think the international student office site for CCC will not open until January 13th at 3:34.

        • Per our conversation at a Chairs meeting this semester, we are required to submit a complete template to the Dean of Instruction. The Dean will then upload our requests.
          Mike Davis sent the templates to Donyel and she distributed them via email to the Chairs. You basically have little to no control over immediate changes if your department website is hosted by CCC.

  4. 11-30-11 @ 10:21:21am District server time.
    (If Kamran wins, that means mice-chancellors were reading this blog.)

  5. Wednesday the 23rd at 4:18pm is hours away, PhiloDave. You’re still in.
    Can we play again if all of our dates come and go without a change? Isn’t that how it works on The Price is Right if all the bids are too high?
