So who is attempting to get to a LeakyCon (either in London or Portland) next summer??

More importantly, who actually mananged to get tickets back on saturday before the whole registration fiasco? And what are everyone's reactions to the whole thing?

Personally I'm slightly annoyed that the site crashed, but I can't blame them for not having a bigger venue as it just would have been illogical for a first time Con to go that big. I know many people are extremely frustrated right now, so what are your opinions?

Saving up for Portland, and hoping there are still tickets left.

I really, really, really want to go (especially to London!) but sadly I don't think it's going to happen for me. :(

I really, really want it to Portland. Other than distance, I am a bit hesitant just because I'm not sure what my schedule will be like next June, but if I think there's a good chance everything will pan out, I'll register soon.

So have none of you been going through the registration hell for London? By trying on 3 different compters at once for an hour the minute registration opened I managed to get my ticket, but my friend's registration ended up incomplete when the site crashed. They are reopening registration for those with incomplete registrations today, but there are only 100 spots left and over 100 incompletes. :/

I hope you can all go to Portland! They probably won't sell out in the first hour like the London ones did.

I don't think so. Unlike the states, Europe was desperate for a Con it seems.

With recent car issues...once again, I don't think Leaky is in the budget this year. :'(

I managed to get a regular London registration and I also (only just) got the Rockstar Portland perk that they offered at the end of the HPA Equality FTW fundraising. It's a long (and very expensive) trip to make from Australia. I'm going to be completely broke but at least I'll be extremely happy!
