Nice to see a fresh coat of paint on the MLP, as it was starting to look a bit dilapidated. Also, is that a license plate I see on the MLP... government bureaucracy to the extreme or some sort of inside joke?
Edit: I now see the wheel hubs... do they only have one set and transfer them between coasts?

Youtube, where the broadcast will be done from is currently having issues (500 error). Hopefully will be resolved before launch.
Titan IVB was a cool rocket

The Centaur upper stage's liquid oxygen tank has reached the 75 percent level as filling continues.

The chilldown conditioning of liquid hydrogen propellant lines at Space Launch Complex 41 is starting to prepare the plumbing for transferring the Minus-423-degree F fuel into the rocket.

Filling of the Atlas V rocketís largest tank has begun. About 48,800 gallons of super-cold oxidizer for the main engine is flowing into the liquid oxygen tank on common core booster first stage.
