    Man, that serves must be taking a beating. I tried to refresh the main page at 10 and just got the

    504 Gateway Time-out

    The server didn't respond in time.


    error.

    Refreshed and got the same error after another two minutes of churning.

    Anyone else getting this? Ah, nevermind...closed the browser and it is back to normal.

    I have a feeling that today is gonna suck.

    I predicted this, pick your poison. Random time and you might miss it, published time and servers will crash.

    Your not playing Galaga for Gods sake, LOL. Just tap f5 every 5 to 10 seconds and you will come out on top in the end.

    I LOVE Distill for Firefox....I have it refresh the main page every 2 minutes, SDCC search results page every 1 minute and it will make an ANNOYINGLY loud and high pitched DING when it finds a change in the page with a notification to go to the page.

    I know Metroplex was. I think Bruticus was around $16.00 or so.

    xx:00 as in 9:00 AM
    xx:01 as in 9:01 AM
    xx:02 as in 9:02 AM

    It's better for people to crowd refresh around the 00 minutes versus EVERYONE hitting f5 every 5 seconds.

    Google Chrome has an auto refresh plus that sets itself for every 5 seconds and you can put in a page monitor to pop up on certain words.

    Just don't forget to stop it before trying to order or else it refreshes the page on you. Had it happen once.

    His box could fit three Bruticus in it, so that wasn't helping... but I checked and the shipping on mine was only $11.93.

    I'm not going to further debate it with you. However, I will walk away from this victorious.

    I paid $16.95 on that damn Garruk axe MTG set last year. It's still catching dust in my closet. I remember the Mrs. was very displeased with foam axe lol.

    Because you got the last word? I never said it was the most efficient way, I said it was human nature.
