When did your text message come?

I found out about Obama's VP choice of Joe Biden, when the infamous text message was delivered to my phone at 3:34 am last night. I didn't hear it last night, but my wife's phone says she got the message at 2:37 am. That's a pretty big span of time for being "the first to know," as Obama's website promised. I wonder if maybe Obama's campaign waited until the middle of the night so less people would notice the flaws in their text message delivery system. Also, could this be the most people to receive the same text message in the history of text messaging? Did you get the message last night? What time did it come in for you?
