    Resale Club 2019

    For chrome, I use 'easy auto refresh' - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-auto-refresh/aabcgdmkeabbnleenpncegpcngjpnjkc?hl=en For Firefox , 'super auto refresh' - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-refresh-super/

    Resale Club 2019

    Opens a session and you stay on the booking page, nothing to worry about. I've used auto refreshers quite a lot and if multiple windows get through I've left them refreshing for a min or so without realising.
  3. We used to drive through the night, stop at the 24 hour Tesco in Glastonbury and fill up the car with crates before heading for the queue... but in 2017 we discovered the Tesco was no longer 24hrs.... Then we had a fun (not fun) road trip to Western Super-Mare to the nearest 24hour ASDA. Took ages. /would not recommend.
  4. Camping isn't that bad... adds to the whole experience IMO.

    Excellent, I'll see if they do a slightly bigger one.

    What size gazebo does everyone recommend?
  7. And wont ever be able to remove fully again
  8. Really? From what I've been reading it's not possible... https://askleo.com/can_a_mac_address_be_traced/
  9. This happneed to me too... press back and then forward in the browser. Dunno why but it worked!
  10. Not sure exactly what you mean, but the internal IP address (the one per device) is not something that's transmitted over the web I don't think... it's just a IP address assigned by your router for use locally on your own network (home wifi or work wifi etc) I'm not even 100% sure if MAC addresses are available to web servers... (im just a lowly web developer, a network engineer would know much more about this stuff). My guess is they're probably not. If i was going to do this, I'd use a cookie (which is easily circumvented by deleting the cookie). The other common ways to limit rates are IP (obviously, as discussed before), geoblocking (used to block russian / chinese spam bots so no good for this really), API limiting (no api or authentication here so no use either) In short, I dont quite know how they do it, but I'll be looking at it again on the next sale to see if i can get any insights to help in future!
  11. Nope this isn't correct, each network has an external IP address, each device has it's own MAC address . Each device has its own internal IP for identification on the local network (something like 192.168.0.XX ) but it's external IP remains the same.
  12. I agree, but when you have multiple devices (i generally use 3-6 laptops) it's easier to set them to auto refresh and kick back and wait as I don't have 3-6 hands.

    Brexit at Glasto?

    This blog may help clear up the stats involved (what will and will not get through parliament) Looks like a stalemate to me. https://marriott-stats.com/nigels-blog/eu-referendum-6-find-your-way-out-of-the-brexit-maze-in-9-days/
  14. Yep, of course - but the website will not know if you're using a refresh app, or just over hammering F5. I've used refresh apps the last 5 main sales and last 4 resales and got through every time. My friends all try and never get through (one browser, manual refresh), it's about maximising your chances by hitting the server as many times as you can (with separate devices) but no more than 60 times per min per device. From what I can tell, there is no IP based filtering. (this would mean anyone in uni halls, or workplaces would all get kicked out if one person over F5's)
  15. I use auto refreshing plugins, they work fine. Just got to make sure you dont hit the server over 60 times a min from one device. (it seems to either dump a cookie on your device or do some kind of MAC address filtering as one device getting locked out doesnt seem to affect the others). There is no technical way to block auto refreshing, as essentially it is just the same as pressing F5... just you can do it more often.
