Subject: [yapc] yapc hilton info

hi all,

i am on the phone with reservations at the U houston hilton and he has
no clue about yapc. i am on hold while he figures it out.

so they need to spread the word internally and such. i will push that
while i have him on the phone. he is going to call me back when he finds
the block of rooms that jeremy reserved. also he said he only has 86
total rooms so he is unlikely to offer the rooms to web discounters like

also jeremy, 20 rooms at that rate will likely go fast. you may want to
try to book more of them. the better room, private bath, convenient
location, etc are attractive to many who can afford it. 

i am booking my room for sat june 23 - sat june 30 so i can be around
for the hackathon (i assume there will BE a hackathon? otherwise i
skidaddle out of the humidity asap :). i like to get in early so i can
relax and do my socialist czar duties in the way people expect of me. :)

side questions: can you buy the meals plans if you don't stay in the
dorms? is the cafeteria(s) in the dorms or closer to the conference
center?  also last year the meal plans were on credit card thingies and
you didn't really buy complete meals (we were told to do that) but
credit which you used in many ways on campus including meals. this seems
to be a common thing on many campuses now so some accurate info on this
would be a good idea. many overbought credit because of that and either
wasted money or donated it to the hackathon which bought munchies with
them. a related issue was that we had a dedicated cafeteria room to use
but they weren't prepared with enough cashiers (credit or cash) so the
lines were very long at lunch. just things to learn from previous
