Well, I am glad I ended up sleeping in. Of course, being in the Mountain Timezone, I would have to get up FAAAAAAR too early for this. The fact that the remaining 10.5 are loafers and patent leather is something my credit card can be thankful of. I could use the money to go have some parking dents removed from my Celi

Oh I am weak. Still have two pairs in my check out and am still fence-sitting. Rather uncomfortable, by the way.

But, because my wife has told me I need to have grandchildren and be called Pappy before wearing spectators, they are going to be available to any and all 9.5D's in a second.

I really like those. Too bad (or, perhaps, thank God ) they're not in my size.

I got through once. Some pretty size 13's but I'm going to leave them to 5 fortunate gentlemen, as the last thing I need is more shoes...

Those of us on the left coast had to get up miiighty early to find anything at this sale. I got up a 4:45 and was in the office by 5:15 to use the high-speed connection. But I've been trying to make it to the gym by 6am anyway, so maybe this will get me started.

if this makes anyone feel better, I was up at 4, SS&S so that I could be here at 5:30 to finish up everything so that it would be on time, and almost did not make it by the 8:30, wonder why that is, because the phone kept ringing.....now, I am getting ready to leave, go to the postal to mail the shoes from out of the US, and then going to go home and go to bed. Thanks guys, another good memorable first sale day.

You are the best Chris. Thanks again for all the effort. Given the demand, I don't see how this could have gone smoother or more fairly.

Thanks,

Andrew

Thanks, I am still a bit peeved at value web for letting my server fail even after speaking to them, they did not set the commands to recognize un-natural traffic patterns, and the server thought my site was being spmaed or phished, all they had to do was click a button and everything went fine

Honestly, believe it or not, I think it worked better this way. People could pick the one or two that they really wanted, rather than quickly select every single shoe in his size and then decide later what he wanted. The slow server kind of leveled the plyaing field.

Chris,
*Thank you* for your efforts. The sale actually went better than I expected. I was anticipating that we might actually crash the server and/or I expected people might hoard shoes in their shopping carts and I would need to stick close to my computer all day to find shoes as they were released. I've learned to expect tech problems and they were minimal for the sale. Thanks again!

ok, what is the old saying? you make some of the people happy some of the time, but you can never make all of the people happy all of the time.....it really did work more fair this time that last, because the simple fact was, before i had a chance to call someone back last time, the phone rang and i was stuck again, lots of people never had the chance they had this time, and i had 4 times as many.

i will hopefully have all orders shipped by thursday, except those of you with special request or those who paid extra for 2 day....everyone should have their shoes no later than wed next week with all good probability.
