I finally got Tickets to Comic Con in San Diego, California. This was on my Bucket List and it looks like it will be getting lined out in 100 days. I received my registration email last Wednesday, like I always have for the past 8 years. I only log on twice a year- Once because I forgot my password from the year before ,and the 60 minutes of the Blue Circle of Dream Crush ,(BCoDC) in the waiting room .
On Saturday, April 8, I woke up at 4:30 am ET. Then I started the process of setting up my 5 year old , 1.0 GB RAM Toshiba Satellite laptop to jockey for a position in the BCoDC. Forums I reviewed stated to try on a Desktop with a LAN Connection to ensure your WIFI doesn't tip. I was going to buy a desktop, but I'm Cheap !!!! I defrag'd my hard drives 530 GBs and dumped my cookies. It was only 5:10 am ET
Cut to 11:09 am ET
I logged into the SDComiccon.com website. The first Banner as in Yellow saying " You're really early." Last year I logged in at 11:00 am ET while playing Pathfinder at my friends house and got the BOZAK !! This is my log of the events this year :
