I'm guessing you missed the half dozen or so posts on the first page that the open beta has been delayed.

Did you forget to check your email?

Sorry to disappoint you but open beta key signups have been suspended aswell. The e-mail that was sent out this morning was more than likely an auto send out as about an hour later the suspension notice came out. If the beta key signup hadn't been suspended then it would have been available for 15 minutes in the UK and nothings up so unfortunatly we're all going to have to wait a bit longer!

You are right I could very well be (and very probable) wasting my time.
But I got nothing better to do and I have insomnia (coffee makes it worse lol) so may as well pop in a movie(s) and tab to browser now and then.

But can't hurt right?

*EDIT*
I just refreshed I took notice they finally took down the downloader.

Whatever floats your boat, man. ^^ I figure it'll be a couple of days or so, but that doesn't mean I won't be checking in myself when around a computer. ;)

I could only really find 1 with it in the name, not counting the locked one, after looking at the first page for a minute. It's not really that hard to miss it.

Not to burst the bubble but this more likely has to do with the new region registration since it was implemented about the same time and blocked access to other services like FFXI.

That'd make perfect sense from SE at this point: Pointless and useless "feature" bricks software. Film @ 11

SE made a critical error they accidentally kept the surplus exp the same, but meant to reduce the surplus exp to 4 hours of play a week because they felt hardcore fans had an unfair advantage against casuals =P.
