same. weekend 1 also clicked over like thirty seconds before weekend 2
Hey, at least my chances are looking good.
What to expect, when you're expecting.
I'm trying it on two computers. The first one says that I am close to getting tickets and not to close the window. The other one said that tickets for weekend one would probably sell out before I made it out of the waiting room (!) and to try weekend two instead.
This is fun guys. Has anyone made it off the standby page yet?
It took me 3 minutes. I got in at 9:58AM
weekend 1 purchase complete, started at 11:59am CST. (refreshed minute early)
Are they serious?

im at work and work for an ISP (maybe my oc backbone helped speed it up hehe)
good luck everyone!
I got in at 10:00 and am still on standby for weekend one, with it saying chances not good. I went ahead and bought weekend 2 to be safe.
this is lame. i think this is a sign that i shouldn't go.
It's just an algorithm telling us whether or not we'll be able to get the ticket. Algorithms are only as good as the person writing them and they most likely didn't compensate for the fact that many people will have multiple windows / tabs open.
Edit: Also they are probably pushing people to get Weekend 2.
Time will tell if I'm right or not though.
