  1. Wednesday and Thursday were a little on the hot side and at times it veered between hot and cool a little too often but if you offered me the same again for next year I would snap your hands off.
  2. Same could be said for most of the crowd control issues! 😂😂 Always another option at Glastonbury if you are willing to think differently.
  3. Yep that seemed to be the key at breakfast to go for non-traditional breakfast food. We had pizza one day and poutine another!
  4. This place by the Other Stage was really good. I had the paneer butter masala and husband had a cheese and chorizo hopper. Sadly I didn’t get a photo of the food. I assume @Mr Gigpusherdid but it was very good. I also liked the cauliflower bites from Mexican Seoul and of course the poutine from The Gravy Train.
  5. Brass Against on West Holts!
  6. Sheesh at 20 she’s so past it 😂😂 I haven’t been out since we got home so no idea what the outside would thinks!
  7. Using VPN’s makes a difference if you are using multiple devices as then you can set the auto refresh to the maximum on each device. It’s also useful if more than one person is trying in the house so you don’t go over the limit between you.
  8. Yes it’s called sandalism and every year they create something and then it gets destroyed.
  9. No more than once a second or you will get blocked.
  10. Yep I am sure because we are not all queued to get in as See Tickets don’t operate a queuing system. My husband is a head of web development and he favours the auto refresh extension approach because it will statistically give the best chance of success.
  11. Getting ready to see Little Simz.
  12. Think the tv footage is very different to the website footage. We have abandoned the tv footage in favour of just watching the individual sets.
  13. Well every time you refresh is an attempt to connect to the page so if you do it 60 times a minute vs 3 times you’ll have 20 times more chances to be successful. Depending on the auto refresh you use some are sophisticated enough to stop when the page changes!
  14. The main advantage is how often you can do it and whether you can set it up for a range of devices. Auto refresh is every 20 seconds Manually refreshing (depending on how many devices you have will be say roughly every 2-3 seconds) Autorefresh extensions you can specify how often they do it (although more than once a second will likely get you blocked) If you have 2 or 3 devices that you can monitor then auto refresh will theoretical give you most chances for least effort during the actual sale (they can be a faff to set up)
  15. There are more sophisticated ones now that will auto refresh until they detect that they have reached the page.
  16. We had a policy of absolute radio silence from 5 minutes before T day for the resale after that only message allowed were I have bought x
  17. In our house I go old school with manual auto refreshing and my husband does all the technical wizardry he can muster. I do use vpn so that what I do doesn't affect what he does and vice versa. I am also usually responsible for comms in our house to the rest of the group.
  18. Yep completely agree. I listened to the Thom Yorke/ Johnny Greenwood secret set from right behind the sound desk and couldn't see a thing in 2010 and that was my fault I didn't turn up early enough to get a better spot.
  19. This was my view for Wet Leg. I am a short woman and had infinitely more space here than I did for Phoebe Bridgers later in the day. I did choose to watch Orlando Weeks to get that spot but these are the choices you make if you want a good spot for a popular act. If I was pushier I probably could have gotten further forward as well but I had a bit of space to dance which was more important to me.
  20. Yep I think some people forget how far in advance some of the line up decisions have to be made and it's not like they can go to an Other Stage act and say to be honest you're a bit shit and won't draw as much of a crowd would you mind swapping.
  21. There's a special place in hell for people who do that. I like to think that if hell exists those people get dunked in long drops repeatedly and for eternity.
  22. I wonder if a good solution for the chair bit would be to have an actual seated area at some of the big stages with stewards etc and then say they can't be put up elsewhere. I have sympathy with both points of view on the chair thing. I am of an age where I just can't stand for 5 days straight and as someone who gets sciatica periodically I do also need the back support as well so just plonking myself on the ground isn't always an option but I like to think that I am in the category of polite chair user rather than chair w*nker. I take the opportunity to see acts that are more relaxing and don't go right to the front and find a spot to put down a chair and relax for an act or 2. If I was in a very busy crowd I would never use my chair. If I wasn't up to standing for those acts I'd go to a quieter act. You do see a huge number of people though especially in the DiRo crowd and Macca who have full picnic blankets out and lots of chairs in a group and even during the acts they don't put them away (even once they have stood up themselves) Some of the people not even watching the acts and just talking to their friends all the way through. I get being annoyed with those people. It's not like it's a surprise that those sets were busy and I do think it is rude behaviour.
  23. Sound on The Other has been notoriously hit and miss. This year it felt like there were improvements as it was definitely more hit especially for PSB. Although we did make sure we got there early enough to get a good spot.
  24. I'd probably put the money towards another holiday at another time of year and watch it at home.
