    Nope. Had the UTC clock up and hit refresh 1 second before 10, and hit buy relatively quickly (on the $230-ish 24,000 point one that they had 100 of) and it was already gone. Took 10 minutes for it to say Sold Out, so I tried hittting Try Again, Buy until everybody had apparently entered their info or whatever. The others went quicker.

    I didn't get any either and I was right there. It was one click not ready, next click (right after) nothing available. 10 minutes of reclicking and SOLD OUT.

    I call shenanigans! You gotta wonder if someone doesnt have some sort of script or program running to capture things so quickly.

    Nope - I had 3 windows open and tried to get one of the packages and missed out on all 3.

    I was able to get the 24k package. No script or anything - just refreshed constantly (F5) and hit Buy Now when it finally popped up. I wasn't watching the clock. There was a slight pause before the window appeared to enter Hyatt #, but otherwise a smooth process. Did the same thing last year and got a goose egg, so it must have just been my time.

    Well, if I have to congratulate you I guess I will. ;) Glad to see at least one MPer get some!

    I got one of the 24k packages also. No script, only one browser open. I just kept refreshing, starting one minute before launch, and lucked out.
