In about 4 hours from now.

But the time exactly will be different depending on which time zone you live in. Central time it should be at midnight, Eastern standard time it would be around 1am Monday morning, Pacific time should be 11pm Sunday night.

Or East coast australia it will be about 2pm Monday Afternoon.

I think the link may have originally been missing the 'www' prefix or something link that. It's definitely there now!

FYI, there was an issue with the submissions forum, but you should now be able to enter. Good luck!
