Same experience.

Thanks Burning Man! I don't think I've ever been able to say that using IE solved my problems before today!

It's a long walk across that progress bar. Makes me glad I didn't spring for a bigger monitor this year.

Most of us joined the waiting room before the sale, and are watching the little green man.
One person reported not joining the waiting room, he joined the main sale as soon as it started and reported that he got right in.
He is the proud owner of two tickets. What's up?

I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this.

Oddly easy, and seems like a lot of friends have gotten tickets as well as well

Sold out, except the stuff in people cart that will be not be purchased.. It's disappointing that this is the first year that no matter how radically self reliant I am, a ticket will not come to me via the main sale.

So, did people who skipped the waiting room get tickets? Because my little stick figure got roughly 1/3rd of the way across.

All tickets are already in other people’s carts. Hold tight, there is still a chance tickets may become available. If ticket buyers ahead of you do not complete their purchase, those tickets will be released for sale.

Many reports of joining late got you the tickets. Joining the room just took you away from the sale.
Did anybody make it out of the waiting room?

I must have been talking on the phone with my new girlfriend I invited to the Burn, and somehow overlooked the time. Anyone have a watch?

All tickets appear to have been in carts as of 12:35pm. That doesn't mean they're all gone, just that they'd been added to carts. If for some reason the sale doesn't complete (declined card, etc), the cart would eventually time out and tickets become available again.

Congrats to all those who've gotten through, and good luck to those still hanging in there!

I got out of the room and into the queue but stuck there with the green man... walking, walking, walking...

I got in, was unable to add two tickets or a vehicle pass, reduced to one ticket and no vehicle pass, success! My buddy got in 5 minutes later and got two tickets and no VP.

Most importantly, I'M IN! Now the mad scramble to figure out how the hell I can get my hands on a VP begins...
