Now if only we can find out WHAT TIME Friday Morning.....
If this was on tv, now would be a perfect time to run a 30 second ad for my scanner!
I AM in South Africa and worried about the tickets
But then EVERYONE would be using it...
True - have not installed it. Use computer at work, PC at home, laptiop on the road - just too much pt.
What is your opinion re the time? i am assuming 9 am CAT but will check at midnight to be safe.
SF tickets were released at around 1:20 am on May 15. Final tickets at 6 pm. So I have no idea when FIFA plans to do it this Friday. If you are looking for final tickets, I don't think you will have a big window to buy them considering most of the tickets will be snatched by ppl using the scanner even before they are visible on FIFA site.
Maybe you should ask someone on the forum who is using the scanner to sms you or something whenever those tickets become available!
Someone like you maybe?? It must obviously be someone who is awake from 00h30 to about 07h30 CAT time - the rest of the time I can check.
Looking for Cat4 Chile vs Spain at Loftus and Cat4 Eng vs Alg in CT
I am in Saudi Arabia. We are one hour ahead of you. So I will most probably be sleeping plus I am not running the scanner anymore. Secondly, the scanner is supposed to wake you up with an annoying sound alert when a ticket you are looking for becomes available. That's the whole point of using the scanner! You don't have to stay up looking for those tickets!
Kayoss! Maybe you can help Gronum get those tickets?
This scanner sounds like a brilliant piece of software....
Sorry for asking this. Are you being sarcastic?
I don't think he was.
After all.....it is proven, and therefore a statement of fact!!
Great news about 160,000 more tickets going on sale. Especially for those of us still with some to put in the resale (not!)
Presumably FIFA will not be updating resales before friday now as presumably they will want to sell there own before they sell ours!!
come on scanner! make my year!
I most certainly wasn't
I am surpised someone among us could make such a thing. Usually you only hear of some whiz kid far away in Japan or the USA who invent things like this...
It seems so good, that i even wondered about its legality...
yes they are...if only i could have bought the tickets in a way i thought it should be bought....by now i would have had my tickets.
Imagine the collective value of fifa's database...will probably go to the highest bidding country...
yep, and Big Soccer data goes to the 2nd highhest bidder!
I'll help you Gronum, I'll be scanning for match 64 tickets and have the computer next to my bed to wake me up if they go on sale in the middle of the night. Send me your mobile number or eq and I'll send you an alert if it wakes me up
Oh ok. My bad. Actually there is a whole thread on the scanner and it mentions a lot of other features than just scanning for tickets Anyway. Thanks for the appreciation.
You are surprised someone from us could do such a thing? I am surprised noone else has responded to that!
Gronum, PM me your cell number and i'll sms you when the scanner alerts me...
I will take offence Emmex. We are collectively a bunch of very smart peeps. Mostly because we all should be working instead of posting on Big Soccer and here we are getting away with it!
Well done Skorpyn - I hope you can copyright it and sell it before 2014 and make some money out of it.
Now can anyone tell me how (or where) I can upload jpegs (not on a website) to Big Soccer?? Is there a site where everyone will be posting their trip photos? I have pics of where the England team will be staying - very nice.
The Brazilians and Soccerroos have landed here already and I sat in a hellova traffic jam this morning because everyone was slowing down to catch a glimpse of the Brazilian bus.
Thanks for the offer - Lucas is helping me. Hope it won"t be 3 am - am liable to buy the wrong tickets at that time of the morning!
The news is up on the fifa ticketing page:

Looks like you have to team up just to carry the tickets, might be a bit tricky getting through the turnstiles.
Money was never on my mind Gronem. Watching ppl get the tickets they want and appreciation is more than enough. I am willing to share the source code as well if anyone needs it. I don't care. I think knowledge should be open and shared with everyone. I will definitely do it again for 2014!
P.S: The typo in your name is deliberate.
My bad again .
Ok, so what does it mean? Born in '78 - son of the Scorpion King?
How hot are you guys getting in Saudi?
Does Gronum need a spellchecker?
What has any of the above to do with Soccer?
