I guess I'm going to San Diego this year. Kind of surprised, because I thought there was no way I was getting a hotel room. But after frustration with the busy phones and a near-miss using Firefox, I saw a tidbit about using Internet Explorer on The Beat comments thread, and 15 minutes later, I had my room booked.
I'm at my favorite hotel that I've stayed at (OK, favorite affordable hotel, the Holiday Inn on the Bay) and though I was tempted to go for the more expensive but swankier Embassy Suites or Hard Rock Hotel, the extra cost was just too much for what essentially boils down to a place to sleep and a place to leave my stuff.
Now I have to see if I can find a roommate to help split the costs... or decide if I want to just pay the whole thing myself and have a room to myself, like I did a couple years ago.
But this is good news, I really didn't think it would be as (relatively) easy as it was.
