I hadn't thought of the computer analog clock though. That's a very good idea to keep track of the seconds.
Looks like I may just have to get up early some morning if I want to play any of these. It is much easier for me to get up at 5 AM than to stay up to 2 AM.
As it's been mentioned, opening your computer's clock and counting the time is probably the easiest way to close to pinpoint the time when registration begins. By my estimate, it's about every 3 minutes and 1 or 2 seconds, so 181/182 seconds total. By adding those few extra seconds, FT can vary the registration times. If you miss out on registering for one, just add approximately 3 minutes and 1 sec for the next registration time.
One thing I've noticed is that even if I hit the register button immediately after it appears, I miss out sometimes. But interestingly, I've been able to get in when I click the registration button area a split second before it appears.
It's a hassle to set up the registration and all that, but it's a lot better than sitting in front of the screen and continuously missing the registration for 30 minutes!
