So, it's June 14th - where are the patches? Does MS release them at a
certain time - like 10am PST or something? I'm very very eager to get them
today, but I don't feel like sitting here at my browser clicking links and
refreshing every 10 min in some hope they released them. Would be nice if
there was a specific TIME to go along w/the specific day.

Hi,

Usually they are released about 11am Pacific Time.

Automatic Updates are usually a day later than the security bulletin. So, if
you sign up for the bulletin, go to Windows Update & download them a dail
earlier or do what I do & download the exe's so you can install them on
other machines without using Internet access
