I got in at 9:04 and finished at 9:06. We'll see how it goes. . . I totally forgot about this today, but thankfully, my wife sent me a text to remind me.

Cache for me:
In: 9:05:16
Out: 9:09:56

Cache for him:
In: 9:02:47
Out: 9:06:48

We had a few hiccups including a must take phone call during the filling out of forms.  I'm not particularly confident this year.  Good luck to everyone.

How many downtown hotels did you choose (0-6)
Both of us chose 6 - although, I glitched and chose dupes

How many non-downtown hotels did you choose (0-6)
I chose 6 out of panic and he chose 1 by accident

What option did you pick if your preferred hotels weren't available? (closest to the convention center, lowest available rate, shuttle route,  disregard my request if choices aren't available)
We both chose closest to the convention center

What waitlist preference did you pick? (yes, no)
We both chose yes

How do I do I do it for IE?
I think IE was a pain, I used a program called iecacheview, which I had to download.  It did not require installation, though.
The Firefox times are listed in the http header of the cache data. 
The cci.onpeak.info/addRequest which includes the "q=", and the cci.onpeak.info/thanks will give you the times you are looking for.

My computer:
I checked my cache, but it just says "Unrecognized storage name 'disk' in about:cache URL". There's nothing else there. I got into the form sometime in the  9:01 minute and submitted right at 9:02.

Remove the word URL.  It's just about:cache.

No, that's what shows up IN about:cache. That's the resulting message.

We had 7 browsers going across 3 computers. First to get in was the Firefox browser on the PC. I think I found the right lines in the cache history:

Got in at 11:01:47
Submitted at 11:05:38

(Central time)

That's a strange one. Is this Firefox or Chrome?
