  1. 0 successfully purchased out of 8 😞 This was going to be my first return to the farm after being lucky enough to recover from a pretty serious injury at the tail end of 2017, and was likely going to be pretty emotional so I thought I'd be gutted. I've taken it better than I thought to be honest.
  2. Do any of these refresh the page regardless of whether the page loads or not? The ones I've played about with look to actually wait for the page to load before they start the countdown for the next refresh (which means you'd be quicker manually hitting F5 while in the rammy to get a connection, until and unless you get to the holding page - then the auto refresh software will work fine)
  3. If Lycra's suggestion of DNS poisoning on the router is correct, you could get around it by changing the DNS settings (and only the DNS settings) to use a public DNS server, such as Google, that way you'd be bypassing the router's poisoned DNS. Another alternative would be to change the router so that it gives out Google's public DNS to connected devices. Id be tempted to see if Virgin would be able to replace the router, or at least verify 100% for you that it's not been compromised. I'm afraid I'm not much cop with Macs to tell you how to manually set a DNS server. I'm sure someone on here will know their way around them though.
  4. I think Lycra was referring to the actual troller in the thread (hint - it's not you 😉) I seem to recall someone had a similar issue last year, but for the life of me I can't find the thread. I think at that point, he/she had been testing the thresholds of the refreshes per minute and seemed to get temporarily blacklisted - if I remember right, they were de-blacklisted after a few days.

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Just came back to say thanks and to give an upvote - managed to book tickets for the second night straight after your reply! Was an absolutely great way to start Glasto. Can't wait for September now.

  10. Still up. The top result in Google is an old one as it caught me out too. http://brotherscider.co.uk/news/item/win-a-festival-survival-kit?confirm_age=true

    Block 9, particularly NYC Downlow will have a lot of acts the may be right up your street then. Masters at Work, would be a good start
  13. Wait, but that means that the current projections of a dry, warm festival could be wrong too? Ok, I'm going to pretend I didn't ready your post @Thunderstruck

    The National

    Wait until Matt's vocals kick in, then it'll be the best customer service hold music you've ever heard.
