No Trailer at AOL Saturday Night
Michael writes: Just wanted to let you know that I was just over on AOL’s Lord of the Rings page waiting for the midnight premiere of the ROTK trailer. However, it wasn’t posted, and at 12:30am an AOL representive came in the room to announce that the trailer wasn’t being posted till midnight MONDAY morning. Apparently, someone at AOL decided that 12 midnight was still considered Sunday night. There are quite a few angry folk in the AOL Return of the King room right now, I can tell you!
UPDATE: Well, the “which day is midnight” question has always puzzled me too. Now, Bob writes: “An astronomer will tell you that AOL is technically right about the date of showing. Midnight does belong to the day before – the new day starts a nanosecond later.” So there you have it!Posted in Old Main News on September 28, 2003 by maegwen
