... how I was able to purchase tickets before they "went on sale"?

I know it's not a PC/Windows based question (unless you consider that I made the purchases on my Dell notebook running XP with the latest Firefox browser) ... but I know y'all know this stuff.

So, I heard on the radio that tickets will go on sale next Friday to the general public, but are available now to AmEx cardholders. I went online to see if I could get an AmEx, but due to not being employed, it wasn't to be.

Then I checked around, and found quite a few sites selling tickets. WELL over the face value, of course. So, I could rearrange my Thursday and Friday to stand in line/hang on the phones to try to purchase tickets ... wait and pray that I win some radio show contest, or just suck it up and pay the opportunity cost for "guaranteed full view" seats.

I selected the section and the row. One site (I wanted four tickets and they were limited to 2 each) already sent back confirmation with the seat numbers ...

How was I able to do this?

... and don't I get any credit here for starting these randomly entertaining (?) threads? Jeepers ...

ok ... I await responses from your collective wisdoms.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
