At 5 minutes before session start time, standby and then gallery seating will be admitted. Any pre-registered enrollees arriving less than 5 minutes before start time will forfeit their spot and be seated based on standby availability.Give me a freaking break. They only allow 25 people to sign up for what they call keyboard access, and 25 more as "keyboard helpers". I'm sure someone thought this was a good idea but it's not really solving anything. There are absolutely, positively no repercussions for not showing up. Anyone want to take bets on how many people sign up and don't show? I wouldn't be surprised if there were empty seats since there is now even less chance of getting in. Since you know that every seat is already spoken for how likely are you to stand around hoping for a second-hand scrap?
And yeah, this pissed me off so much I blogged on vacation.
