Huzzah!

Yale is expressing interest. I'd be surprised if we didn't bring 2 to 3 teams, and I'll email once numbers are more set. (Just to make sure I'm reading right: Does "guy@brown.edu", no last name, redirect to your email too?)

EDIT: Let's say 2 teams for now.

So we'll be at 1 or 2 teams, probably 1 because David's busy and Graham might be busy too.

EDIT: Not sure why I quoted Matt Jackson there.

I think NYU will be sending two teams (or maybe more) to this...

Columbia will hopefully have one (or two?) teams at this.

Matt (Yale Up) cleared the field.

EDIT: For some reason some of the columns on the individual detail page are shifted over by one (which I've heard of happening to other users of SQBS for Mac). Advice on fixing the issue would be appreciated, but it's understandable as it is.

Looks like:

Code: Select all

sed -i '/ <\/td>/d' <team details filename>
sed -i '/ <\/td>/d' <individual detail filename>
should do the trick. (in a terminal. pretty sure sed comes with OS X, but maybe not)

edit: actually it looks like OS X's sed is a bit different and it should be sed -i '' -e '/ <\/td>/d' <filenames above>

edit2: actually, it looks like the Team Details file is fubared in multiple ways, so the above won't fix the shifted bottom row.

People played Eyes that Do Not See after the tournament. We would've played during lunch, but we spent all of lunch waiting for the file to download because nobody had downloaded it ahead of time. (Suggestion to Mike Bentley: maybe separate out the individual PPTs rather than [or in addition to] having a single large archive?)
