about me

I'm a former professor of computer science; now I work at FanDuel trying to make sure that sports fans can squeeze every last little bit of excitement out of Sunday Night Football without a bunch of web servers catching on fire.  Or something like that.

Sometimes I build websites. I built the one you're looking at now.  If you find any bugs, I'm pretty sure they're Steve's fault.

Toronto NABC Reservations Now Open (Sold Out?)
Judging by how quickly it's selling out, Randy, I'd say tons of people would.
Toronto NABC Reservations Now Open (Sold Out?)
The York is a FOUR MINUTE walk: https://goo.gl/aaR6Ms . I'm not sure how much closer it could possibly be. I guess it could be a two minute walk? Of course the Kansas City host hotel is sold out, reservations have been open for months. It's completely ...
Toronto NABC Reservations Now Open (Sold Out?)
This thread is so confusing to me -- There are plenty of rooms still available for the entire block of time at the Royal York and the Westin. As an experiment, I just tried to reserve rooms at each, with no issues.
Toronto NABC Reservations Now Open (Sold Out?)
It's not surprising to me at all that the rooms sell out quickly. The date that housing will become available is known well in advance; my calendar reminds me to book.
Suit symbols display too large on my new android phone

10's or T's ?
This does seem to be something of a religious debate. We could consider making it an option, though.
