This sucks, the pages aren't there now, seriously, is that it? Is it completely over or are they going to re-do it, cause that was a dissapoinment, none of us got keys?

I guess we'll just have to keep extending our license to 120 days.
Not really eheh :> at least for build 7000

Bizarre - the main page we are supposed to go to gives no indication at all about how to get it - doesn't even mention it.

Posting the provided link - thanks John - into anew window - you get a Akamai download manger - whatever that is - and it doesn't work.

Tried rebooting to get rid of the dozens of instances in Task Manager - but it is still on my desktop .
