  1. Would Dam Edna fit in somewhere? The slot that David Attenbrough had last year?

    I had it switched off yesterday as I had to update the code to take into account the Campaign and Shop places being available. I also found that when running the macro through Chrome in Incognito mode the page eventually became blocked. Don't know if this is something they have programmed into their servers to detect/identify possible DoS threats...seems to work ok without Incognito mode. Its updated and running now. I'm only looking for Steward places. Once it sees Glastonbury is active, it then checks to see if the Steward places are also available (it detects if the page source has Steward=Disabled and so ignores and won't alert then). No alerts today so far. But it might have crashed at some point. Will check later.
  4. I met a wonderful lovely lady last year who was with her 83 year old mum. Fit-as-a-fiddle too. Couldn't wait to get her hands on George Esra apparently 😄

    That was a test I did using Download as the available festival to generate the alert. The macro is running since this morning at home. Checking the page every 30 seconds. I've not had any alerts so far, so nothing have become available. Could be weeks until they appear...so will have to persevere until they do.

    Yeah it's not my mobile number. They are numbers randomly allocated by ClickSend (the company I used to generate the alerts) to send the SMS.

    Well THAT WORKS A TREAT !!! 🤓 Set my macro on a 30 second loop. If it finds that Glasto places are available then it will ping me an SMS immediately, and keep checking until it says Sold Out again whereby it will let me know about it and carry on looping. Can be put to use for any page in the future. Now going to treat myself to a nerd sandwich 😇

    That's a great idea. Hadn't thought of that. Now signed up with 'TextMagic' and will test it out tonight

    I have set up a page-checker using my own crafted macro running in Excel with Selenium. It opens the Oxfam festival selector page in Chrome, then reloads every 30 seconds. If the text 'Glastonbury - Sold Out' is found in the page text then it carries on with the refresh loop. However as soon as that disappears it will proceed to select Glastonbury/Steward/tick the boxes/click Proceed. Which is great...but I can't make it autofill the payment details (opens in a secure frame so my macro can't see it). Since I can't run this from my work pc it's therefore of no use as it'll just sit on my home pc at the payment page all day. I'm going to update the macro tonight to instead email me at work as soon as it sees Glastonbury available. So it'll be hit or miss if I see an email alert in time to go in and fill in the details (if - a very big IF - places become available and I'm in front of my emails). I have a similar macro ready for resale day which I've tested - refreshes the landing page until the registration page appears, then fills in all the reg/postcode details, move on to the payment page, fills in the card number/expiry/ccv, tick the checkbox and submits...only thing it can't do is ensure I get through to the registration entry page - that has to be F5 untikl I get lucky! Sorry to all non-nerd-geeks if that sounded very nerdy-geeky
  11. Me too! A soon as I saw 'Congo'. Had to google the full lyrics Way down deep in the middle of the Congo, A hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango. The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo" Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo. The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin. The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in. So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!

    I don't even see how it was possible to do that! I got straight on at 11:30:02, selected Glasto, ticked the boxes, before I could hit Proceed the page refreshed itself with Glasto - Sold out.... Pointless 😒
