The tech is a bit cleverer this year - it is spotting you have got multiple instances of a browser open...

Is that why the OH was getting in on all 3 tabs at once? While I am getting sod all?

I think so.

All of my my 3 tabs have the same picture on them...

Different machines seem to work, however.

I managed to get mine at about 9:20 in the end. Not bad at all considering previous years!

If it helps anyone, people have mentioned on the efestivals forum that adding a line to your hosts file will get you straight in by getting past SeeTickets overloaded DNS servers. Info here:

http://www.efestivals.co.uk/forums/topic/170258-ti...st860

Here's the line to add:

194.168.202.201 glastonbury.seetickets.com

Disclaimer: I've not used this, just passing on info. It all seems to check out though.

We're all done 8 tickets bought although it was my mate in MK that did it

Lots of people are saying about the host file thing seems to work for some

Good luck guys

Keep trying on that page - we had to hit resend for best part on an hour before they went through.
