Now that the cork is no longer on the 1st stage the icing is much more impressive.

Good call. Learning experience with an actual webcast! :)

The forum's at about 35 percent of the visitations we get for a Shuttle LAUNCH. Launch day should be fun.

Strange, sounds like they might only have the Dragon net on audio, but not the countdown net.

For the record, I'm seeing a 19 second lag on the SpaceX webcast, assuming that the T- clock is aiming for exactly 3:00:00.  The NASA TV retransmission is another 5 seconds back.

Also, in the NASA TV transmission, the video frame is significantly cropped, but only in the horizontal.  You can't see the red "Live" bug in the upper left corner at all.  I estimate about 6% is lopped off each side; top and bottom are also cropped but just barely.

PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .

Terminal Count.

Must admit, I've never liked that name.  Has a bit of a morbid connotation.
