I had Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox open, all logged into the store 20 min prior (to avoid problems when the big moment arrived) set up on my screen in a triangle formation so I could click once on the window I wanted, hit F5, and while its refreshing go on to the next window, hit F5, etc.. I also had timeanddate.com opened up to help anticipate, but started my round robin clicking 5 min prior. At 10:00:00 AM on timeanddate.com, (I happened to be on Explorer) the refresh showed the purchase drop down menu, I chose 2 and hit go, and was in the que at 10:00:03, and 903 people back, when I got to the front of the line there was 41% of stock left, so I assume they sold around 10,000 tickets total.

A little hint for next time, the Opera browser has auto-refresh!
