Well, here's some more details. I'm sorry to string this out! I'm really NOT trying to play games with all of you! REALLY! I SWEAR! I'm figuring this out as I go, and when I do, I'm sharing it with you!
Then, after the one free seat is determined, open registration will begin on October 30th at 10pm EST. That's also a Thursday. I figured 10pm on a weekday would be about the most fair time to do it because most of you will be home at that time and my west coast friends will also be into their evening. Don't ask me to move it, I can't give any preferential treatment to anyone, for fairness, so mark your calendars and synchronize your watches! I'll be going by the time on my computer, which is the Windows standard for EST, so I think that we should all be on the same page. I'll be pushing the post button on my computer at exactly the turn of 10:00pm, but can't be responsible for any malfunctions or delays caused by problems on the web, etc. The first 9 to sign up will still be the 9 who get in, and I'm afraid that's the only sane way I know how to do it.
