What would be the point of that? You'd be telling your computer to do something it was going to do anyway.

Ah right, I didn't realise... I thought it just tiptoed you round the queue!

Firefox seems to be struggling with page refresh already. Chrome is working much faster.

Last year it was the other way around! I wonder why.

There's really no point. Essentially, at the moment, there's three booths for tickets, and your computer will try to get to any of them. By putting one of those in, it will only be directed to one of them, hence decreasing your chances. The reason it worked last year was because See was directing people down a certain route, thus leaving one of the booths empty.

For certain operating systems this isnt necessarily true. You could be caching a DNS entry to a heavily loaded server that you cant escape from, constantly hammering it whilst other servers are merrily plodding away with capacity to spare.

I'm no expert, but I'm not sure it's worth risking guessing the possible page- you have to weight up whether the split second it will save you is worth the risk of it being the wrong link.

Please guys, do not edit your hosts file. Last year was a one off cock up, and you'll just decrease your chances by messing about with it.

On second thoughts, go ahead. :ninja::lol:
