iTunes Connect Closed! - pencils down

I just found out the hard way unfortunetly, but it looks like apple closed the Itunes Connect developer site a little early.
I knew the site would be down from the 24th to the 28th, but I assumed that meant midnight. I tried around 9:15 Dang...
Regardless, this means that no apps can be updated at all from now until the 28th. Not just the actual app, but screenshots, description text...pricing in my case and all the other info usually available to devs.

Think it'll affect other devs plans?

It shouldn't affect devs plans because this was planned so most should know about it. Going down a little earlier than expected might catch a few out, as it did for you, but I imagine if any developers were planning xmas sales or anything, then they would have that scheduled already, ahead of time.

But that's 12:15 Eastern. So right on time, if that's how things are setup.

Sounds like a lot of devs are going to be pounding connect on the 28th to see how big their xmas presents are

You might be right, but doesn't apple do everything by Cupertino time?

Well they update the U.S. featured lists around 9pm Pacific every Monday night, so midnight Eastern makes more sense for that to me. But who knows what time Steve runs on.

Devs won't be able to see their incomes until Connect opens again? I'm not really sure how it works, but is that the only place where they can get that information? No daily emails summing up sales or anything?
