ticket costs

In 2003 and 2004 I bought tickets off the website right when they went on sale, and after a few hours of frustration scored both times. This year, however, I determined that the involved costs are much higher than the purported savings ($185 vs $225). Like so:
Involved taskCost
4 hours of twitching at my web browser: 4 x hourly wage
3 lj posts about how the site is down: patience of my friends
3 beers with friends to vent: $10-15, sobriety
worry that my card has been billed twice:lost sleep
Total:A hell of a lot more than $40.
