I used two computers to try and log on. On one, I clicked on the email, on the other, I typed it in. Obviously I got in on the one where I typed it in and even then, it timed out and upon reloading, I was a little over 10,000. By the time i got through, the 4 day passes were sold out. It means with single day passes, i'd have to use precious time lining up just to get my passes before i even get in to line up some more. People spend valuable money for travel and hotels and I'd hate to waste my time the way Comic-Con operates. However, my clients will be there so my presence is somewhat necessary. But, yes it is not quite as fun as it used to be.

: At 8:00 AM I click the link they sent in the email. My Safari locks up or the site times out several times until 8:20 something when SDCC texts that the link is wrong.... So when I do launch from the SDCC website I am now #39, 473. By the time it all sells out at 9:18, I'm #2323. In a way I'm glad, it's gotten so crowded and expensive, that it was not fun anymore.
