I'm a wreck ... have about an hour and a half to get tix before some afternoon meetings.

I think I need to be preparing for those meetings but terribly distracted at the moment, lol.

So, for those of us not at work--have you chosen a book to read or other form of entertainment for the wait?

I'm at work and this ticket sale will probably be the most entertaining/productive thing that'll happen.

canned soup and hot coffee. This usually works for a long day. It should be fine for an internet transaction.

Scrambling for tickets always freaks me out no matter what we do.

Due to same credit card address as my roommates, I'm not gonna risk their getting their order canceled from some scalper alert software....I have no problem getting my ticket later...tickets are ALWAYS available later, and the one price thing is in my favor, too.

Had to come to eplaya and at least watch the tension show,,,,been doin' the online ticket thing since the days when we had to get postmarked at USPS at an exact time...probably a better system for us consumers :D (no need to bring up horrors from the past online "events)

I'm going to go ahead and believe with no proof that even though they still trust inticketing and the same demand should technically exist that their systems will refrain from failing or running horribly slow today :mrgreen: 5 mins!

VampireKitten - that's why I said reasonably good :wink:

DocktorIKnow - any orders that may be flagged by software are then reviewed by humans before anything would be canceled.

I already see one major improvement - queue position locking based on IP - so at least this time around getting timed out shouldn't hurt things. Nice :mrgreen:

Damn, it doesn't tell you what number you are in line. BOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

The first screen I got said 12:00:24, so I'm assuming I got in 24 seconds after opening.

My friend who got in 9 seconds after noon just got tickets. I'm 17 seconds after. Should be soon now. I can't believe I'm this anxious about it, haha.
