Talk about selling fast.

I just paid for two tickets to ISIHAC, at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

Tickets went on sale at 10:00

I remembered at about 10:10

By the time I actually got through on the web site, the best seats I could get (and I wanted 2 together) were in row UU. That's pretty well near the back, and that was at 10:20.

No, far from it, it's that, unknown to me, uitlander was standing outside the box office at 09:45, and she bought some tickets, of which two are for bellinghwoman and me. So the ones I bought are now spare, and you two have first refusal if you haven't get any yourselves.

(uitlander mentioned it to us last night at the Andy Hamilton gig, which was the first we heard about it.)

Since the ones she got came free when someone's web browser session dropped, it's possible that you might have ended up getting tickets after all. The site was slow as pitch at 10:10, and I expect that more than one session will have crashed, leaving tickets returning to the pool after the 15 minute timeouts.
