hrmm... how long do we stay up to push the little button?
maybe folks on the east coast have it easy because they can just get up early and deal with it when it's like 4 am here

i feel like i'm calling into a radio station for concert tickets and the line is just staying busy

it said at 11:59, that the time it would take to buy a ticket would be the time it takes the sun to go 25,000 miles. the sun zips along at 486,000 mph. heh. yeah. but wtf are we doing talking about miles in this day and age?

stall. stall. stall. yay. connect. fill out fill out submit. oh. i wanted secure mail. hrm. oh well. too much hassle to change. "buy now" wait wait wait. oh. operation timed out. yeah. hrm.

oh... a new window...

Please wait while your order is authorized.
This window will close automatically.
Transactions normally take 2 to 5 seconds, but can take as long as 1 minute.
If this window does not go away, check your email. If you do not receive an email confirmation, then try your order again or call 415-389-TIXX.

yeah, it's been a couple minutes and still a window...
ah... such fun.

... update... okay... 1) folks w/ paypal seem to be having a slightly easier time finishing the transaction.
2) i don't know about the safety of this at all, but i just kept reloading the page w/ the "BUY NOW" buttom that, when pressed, would say "Click OK to suck out all your money" whihc i had to click a dozen+ times before finally getting a confirmation page

Confirmation email seems to be rather speedy. and i only got one of those, so i'm assuming i will still have some money in my bank account in the morning

also. i *really* like the link at the bottom that says "Tell us about your purchasing experience!"
