Did your second try get updated on the site? I already did it twice early during all the problems and do see two outstanding charges. I'll probably just wait and see how the system looks tomorrow, unless you saw a change.
I too got my one entry in and paid with confirmation email and credit card charge, but not acknowleded by registration system. Now, i just got an AHA email saying I have 24 hours to pay. I sure hope there isn't an auto delete in 24 hours . . . .
How did you all get registered??? I've spent the last hour hitting refresh and getting no sever response until an hour later and now full conference is sold out. Not a very enjoyable process for a long time member, but first timer for conference finally having the time and means.
