I think just computer issues. I never asked. Too busy talking, i guess! We all lined up (i wasn't really that close to the front) and just stood there for awhile.

Yeah, I think they were having some issues right off the bat. I was there before noon but they didn't even start moving the line until about 12:10.

No line
I just picked up my badge along with [member=314]Transmute Jun[/member] and [member=2339]NCDS[/member]

 Transmut thought to ask where the line up for autographs was going to be tomorrow am. There's pictures



And a close up, the line up chutes are to the right of the badge pick up area

Or one more thing

I did not have my bar code printed out but had the bar code pulled up on my phone.  They were able to read/scan off my phone. Upshot, no paper print out was needed!

I have to think this will also be the case with Sdcc.

Here a pic of the WC badge double pocket, one for Rfid badge and the second for the day indicator.

Mini review,
Yep it's a virus show but imo,it was well done, I cared about the characters and will be adding it to my season pass list.

From transmu Jun: She liked it, the show was paced well.
From Rando: it was ok
From Ncds: <she's sitting to far away to talk to right now>
