Thank f*ck someone I was online with was able to buy two. Now I can log off this damn thing and pay them back tonight. With cash and whiskey.


Yeah, I'm doing the same thing. First person to get in buys two. Really lame that people have to resort to this. I mean, TWO hours, with no indication of progress/place "in line"? For 2013 that seems excessive and unnecessarily stressful. I know, gripe gripe gripe but it sucks not knowing if I can go to the bathroom safely.

add me to the list of people who got locked out *sigh* not terribly surprised, though. it's a cluster fuck every year.

guess i'll spend my ticket money on supplies in the meantime & start a new ticket fund for swooping one up later in the season.

after getting booted 5 times, connection reset error message or something like that, I got the same message again at 1:57pm. Instead of refreshing the page like i did the times before, I right clicked on the center of the page and hit reload. bam, purchase screen!

I'm on the latest chrome on mac os x 10.8

printed my confirmation ticket but still don't have an email confirmation (it's been 4 mins, so hopefully still all good)

:D woohoo burning man 2013 here I come

Here are a couple of screen shots:

I got in at 1:38 and got my ticket.
The math is: in queue 35 seconds after noon = 98 minutes waiting time

Here are more screenshots for those who are still in queue and curious:

Hiya,
My experience was ultimately successful:

using Firefox on a Dell laptop with a Sprint EVDO connection
originally entered the queue at 12:00:26
the page went for about 20 minutes refreshing on its own every minute or so
then about every 5 minutes or so it would stall and i would have to refresh the page manually
never had to re-enter my code so I guess I kept my place in line
finally at 1:11:11 (!) it went to the purchase page
was a bit surprised to have no AMEX option this year and had to run find my Visa
purchase transaction went through smoothly and by 1:20 I had my confirmation.

Good luck to all and hang in there!

See you on the playa.

sounds about right..I got in at 30 seconds in and waited about 1hr 40 I guess..Less stressful than the lottery and not a game anymore.

Remember people: there were unsold and unused tix right up to and through the event last year. Trust.

Have you tried clearing your cache/cookies/browers? This happened for a few in my camp and apparently they were back in after doing that.

Well, for me I have to say this was the least painful ticket purchase in the last 4 years.

I got in the queue at 12:00:34, and watched it refresh until 12:06:47.
Took a nap for 30 minutes
Noticed the screen said a server connection timed out, so I hit refresh, queue popped right back up (no idea when it appeared though).
Got that error 2 or 3 more times over the next hour (between napping and leaving the room, I didn't even bother to sit at the computer).
Around 1:30 or so I noticed it was sitting on a new page.
Sat down, made the purchase without incident, got my Email, clicked the link to change the shipping address...

Other than the couple of server timeout errors, nothing bad happened, and it was the fastest I have bought tickets ever (and it didn't seem like I was ever kicked out of the queue). I'm usually in a queue for 5+ hours before I get to purchase (or last year getting STEP tickets at nearly the last minute...)

I have to admit, I'm impressed...

Logged in at 12:00:12 and still waiting for them to check ticket availability. Should I refresh? I feel like I've been skipped over.

Got online right at 12, firefox blocked reloading so I reloaded every 2 minutes or so (timer would only update when I reloaded) but not sure if I was resetting my place in the queue. Finally got through to the pay window after 2 hours, lost connection, retried and got it back, paid with no further issues. KognitoKlast will be better than last year.

Did all the individual tickets sell out on the spot last year? Or did it take a few days/weeks?

Thank you to those that posted the warning about AmEx. When (hopefully) I do get to the purchase screen, can anyone tell me if PayPal is an option?

It was a different system. I liked it better, even though it didn't get me a ticket. But everyone hated it, so they went to this instead.

So, I've had to re-enter my passcode 6 times when I get a page that says "diagnose conection error"
Does that mean it keeps pushing me back in line?
So the theme this year is like a giant camp out in the desert? With people bringing lots of shit from all over? uh.. -Marscrumbs

Hey I have a question, the last numbers of my IP address change every couple of refreshes. This isn't like ruining my chances of getting a ticket? I started at 12:10 it is now 2:30? Should I just keep waiting?
