Another place where the 7-day private beta duration was hard-coded… Am I on a cosmetic bug report roll or what?

The e-mail announcing the beginning of a new public beta gets the duration of the private beta wrong:

The new Cryptography Stack Exchange site is now open to the public!
After just 7 days in private beta, we’ve already got 188 users who have asked 70 questions and written 152 answers.

No, Crypto.SE's private beta was quite a bit longer than that.

Should say 6 to 8 weeks instead. – Robert Harvey Aug 2 '11 at 22:24

Good catch. This is fixed now.

This part of Area 51 was written during the magical days of yesteryear, when private betas lasted exactly 7 days.
