I never said they were wrong or that the Official Release date wasn't May 16, 2008. What I am saying is that the file which is the same being mirrored everywhere (same MD5 checksum) was on the server on May 15, 2008. So I would have assumed that they would have posted the Official announcement on that same day...especially since I downloaded it May 15, 2008 at approx. 14h30 ADT (Atlantic Daylight Time) which is 4 hours more than PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), the timezone in which Mozilla is located. So in reality, I downloaded this thing at 10h30 PDT quite early in the day...wonder what took them so long to announce it...

So the my point being that from my point of view, MozillaZine is still late...even if it was Officially released on May 16, 2008. So your posts are pointless, I know all of that info, I just stated an opinion.

What I don't get is you motivation behind trying to prove me wrong...it does not make sense.
