Single Ticket Madness

Oh, the joys of the opening hour of single ticket sales.

I was up at 5:45 a.m. CST so that I could be ready to go online at 6 am to start buying tickets. I had my list already prepared as I was heading straight to certain locations on the schedule. All I needed was an access point. I tried. And tried. And tried. And tried. ACESSS. Who hoo.

Filled out my schedule. Awesome, everything except "Borat" was available. Hit Continue. ERROR. Noooooooo. I was almost there. Start over. Tried to get access. Tried again. And again. ACCESS.

I finally got completely through by 6:50 a.m. By that point, several of the movies which WERE available, were no longer available.

Here's the key to the online system that I figured out at the end. (Sorry, I was slow on the uptake this morning). If you get an error message AFTER you are into the selection process, DO NOT close the window. Simply hit the back arrow. It should take you to your previous page. Try to continue from there. If I had followed this process, I would have gotten my other two movies.

As it is, I have added the following films.
Galas for "Babel" and "Black Book".
Pervert's Guide to Cinema on Sat. at 12:15 p.m. will take the place of "King and Clown"
Outsourced on Sat. 16.

I'm still rushing both "Borat" and "Volver".

Now I've got five hours till my flight. There's no way I'll be able to go back to sleep. Hope everyone has success in their ticket searching today.

I was hoping, since you're from out of Toronto, I might be able to talk to you about your experiences at the film festival. Can you drop me a note at daveeo at cogeco dot ca and I'll give you details? Thanks...
