Well, yesterday I heard from a friend that there was going to be another round of sneak preview showings of Serenity (the new firefly movie) on May 26th. I went over and tracked down the showing on movietickets.com and tried to order some tickets. At first it gave me a ‘we are having technical problems, should be fixed in an hour’, so I kept trying. Then it had a much more anoying failure mode: it would let me select the show, the number of tickets, enter my credit card info, review the order and then submit it. It would then dump me back on the front page with no evidence that it did anything. I tried using firefox, opera, opera pretending to be IE, konqueror, and mozilla. All failed the same way. So, I ended up with no tickets to show for many hours of submitting orders. Die movietickets.com, die.
