Advanced Registration for Hands on Sessions?

Looks like you can now register in advance for Hands on Sessions, spotted this e-mail a few minutes ago though a few people I know have tried and no one had been able to log in yet,  Has anyone been able to log on successfully? The Lotusphere hands-on sessions have become an extremely popular and highly-rated component of the Lotusphere agenda, In order to maintain those high attendee ratings, this year we will be accepting reservations for each of the sessions. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and the demand for each session will determine your level of participation. Please make your selections carefully, as you will be able to make your selections only once. Also, please be sure to read the Lotusphere 2008 hands-on session policy below. Thank you! To register click on this link: You will be asked to provide your Registration Confirmation Number and the e-mail address that you submitted as part of your Lotusphere Conference Registration.  Please note:  Make your selections carefully, as you will be able to make your selections only once. Hands-On Session Registration Policy: Reserved" seating in hands-on sessions is based on enrollment via the registration site. Attendees who pre-enroll for hands-on sessions will be admitted first (this includes both "keyboard" enrollees and "keyboard partner" enrollees) 10 minutes prior to session start. At 5 minutes before session start time, standby and then gallery seating will be admitted. Any pre-registered enrollees arriving less than 5 minutes before start time will forfeit their spot and be seated based on standby availability. For each session the first 25 enrollments are reserved as keyboard enrollees and the subsequent 25 are reserved as keyboard partners.

    Only reason I saw it in time is because I live in CET (GMT + 1)…

    I also saw it early, I guess: I could register. I’m also in the GMT+1 area, so that’s my luck, so it seems…
    Only problem: I was so hasty to subscribe that I forgot to select some dates. Then I submitted and BAM – too late :-S
    And not all sessions I wanted to go, were confirmed. Therefor, I have session where I go to some kind of B-session without the possibility to go to A first.
