Yes I wondered why they'd be filling lox before the countdown hour, would be very wasteful.

EDIT: Lol I wasn't sleeping, it's 9:30am here, so no chance of me dropping off :P

I hope you're not that good in predicting the future :P (but there is a possibility...)

I bet they do scrub today, but I still stand by my vote for 100% success, when they eventually do launch. It is pretty boring so far, half an hour since I logged on and all I have seen is that $^%& T +00:00:29 graphic and no sound. And the family wants to go out for dinner now. :(
