If it says "approved message" that means whatever you have sent to him has been approved to be delivered - is that maybe what you're referring to?


God GTL is driving me nuts. I've never seen a lag so bad.

Itís not specific. I get the same message, regardless of who sends the message.

The wait on the weekends to get in can take FOREVER lately. If youíre there around 9:30 youíll get in before 2:15. At 2:15 they stop letting people in u til 3:15 for shift change. Then at 4:15 again thereís no movement til count is over (can be til 5pm). At 9:30 you might wait an hour or two which would get you in around 11:30 and youíll be there for pics. Just really depends on the crowd that day and how painfully slow the COs are if you get I. Right at 9:30 you wonít be there for pics.

Does it matter I should get 6 hours? I donít want to show up at 9.30 and not get in for 5 hours (that seems a little wild, tho I may be misunderstanding you) and then only have 3 hours to visit... :/ or wait youíre saying if Iím there at 9.30, I should get in by 11.30 which should put me in for pix? Is the visiting room tiny or are there just a billion people coming out lately?

I once waited 3 hours to get in. A few times 2 hours, and a few times over an hour. Just depends on the crowd that goes that day. First weekend of the month seems to be worse than others. I forgot youíll have a longer visit though. They also JUST added another computer at the front desk so they hopefully get us in faster. When are you planning your trip again?

I'll be there the second weekend of August.

I hope they don't cut the approved extended visits down if there's a big wait - you know how they cut visits shorter when there's a crowd I guess? I'd be so like.. upset to have travelled 900 miles to get 4 hours and not 6. I mean, I'll enjoy it, and hell, most people don't even get 4 hours.. but ya know..
