– Reduce the size of the page image on the screen via CTRL-minus, so that the whole order confirm form will appear without needing to scroll down.
– With the right hand keeping the mouse pointer on the “buy” button’s location, start doing CTRL-F5 (yes, wide finger spread is needed) with the left hand until the page background color changes, and then CLICK with the right.
– When the first part of the order confirm box paints, be ready to click on the “not a robot” box before the form expands.
– When the full form paints, click on the green button immediately.
I will note that it still took about 100 attempts before I was successful.
@DannoHung So every time I have tried to get one I have. My only guess is that since I live not even 20 miles away from Meh headquarters, mine somehow sneaks in 0.0000000001 seconds faster and thats how I pull it off. I have been successful on both mobile and desktop browsers. I also have gigabit internet, though not sure if that really helps.
From here on Xfinity space in Houston, the round trip time for a packet appears to be about 1.4 seconds at the moment; it will vary with loading. For you, it’s likely to be down around 200 milliseconds. And that, right there, is far more than enough to explain your success rate versus my failure rate. Also, it’s important to understand that physical proximity is not a guarantee of network proximity; there are likely loads of people in wide-backbone areas well away from Texas where their RTT is just as short as yours, and there could be people physically near you behind paranoid or underspec connections where the RTT is even longer than mine.
@werehatrack I will 100% defer to your expertise on the question. I was just stabbing in the dark trying to figure out why I keep snagging them. Thanks for the brief, but informative lesson on networks!
If you’re a Member, it’s a spurious error. If you’re not, that’s the problem. I’ve seen a couple of other gripes that were from members who got that error instead of one that would have been more accurate.
