NYC sold out.  My last was entry 601.  the two entries previous to that were in the 400's and 500's.  So basically a jump of 100 entries every 10-15 seconds.

I know they're running around like crazy now, but how about throwing us a bone?  If the service is down and no one is registering entries ( NYC stuck at 123 ), then let us know so we can stop hitting the servers.  Maybe have a temporary delay and reopen when they think it's ready to handle the traffic?

I gotta pee but don't want to leave the computer  ;D

Well NYC has been stuck on 123 of 750 for quite a while so maybe no one is getting entries in.  I have one in NYC and I'd hate for it to sell out when I have a few more to enter and can't enter another region.

NYC 109 registered already.  I managed to get 1 in so far.

503.  The constant clicking of reload begins...

I wonder if I need to do this for each entry!

If you have updated Firefox when it prompted you to do so, then you should be O.K.  I'm on Firefox 18.

Oh so you mean the five times in the past 30 days? ;)  This gets updated almost as much as Flash and Java!

Thanks Janis.

With all this talk about updating Internet Explorer to at least IE8, I assume Firefox will not have any issues?

But mine has to go through the midwest and all that nasty winter weather...hope it gets here in time.

Just kidding...I just received it.  Thanks Janis, and best of luck over the next couple months.  Hopefully the changes made this year make it easier for you to coordinate this enormous competition!!!

Good luck everyone!

By this means, more ads = more content.

By this standard, zymurgy will look like this by next year:

Hey, if the mail person can deliver it, I'll read it.   ;)

I suspect you'll see it just before the entry window opens, maybe a 1/2 hour or so.

The links are also supposed to be updated on the judging region page, but based on what happened on the hotel registration day (links didn't show up until host hotel was almost sold out ), I'd like to have the email "in hand"

Thanks for the replies.  I like the idea of releasing a little at bottling.  And I'm sure it will lose some too by the time it gets to the judging table.  Do the judges open their own bottles or do the stewards do that?

The Dark Mild I was going to do last weekend but got to busy on Saturday to do, then snow all day on Sunday.

Other Fermentables / Cider Carbonation
« on: February 26, 2013, 06:16:34 AM »
Is a cider considered still, even if there are a few bubbles of carbonation?

I want to enter my first cider this afternoon for NHC.  I've kegged my cider, holding at 40F, at 12 psi.  Out of the keg, there are some bubbles that stick to the side of the glass and very few rising up through the cider.  A gentle swirl of the cider doesn't seem to produce any significant co2 release, just the few bubbles.  So few that if I took a picture, I count probably count how many bubbles were in suspension very easily.

I'm thinking you think that is accurate?

I had a great time at BN7.  Tons of great beer, live band, and a whole bunch of asshats.
The food line sucked though, but who's there for food, anyways?!?  I also got a nice tour of Elysian's brewery.

It was my first BN attended event, so I was a little star struck ( Justin, JP, Tasty, Paxton, Keeler, Dawson, Chip, etc ).

What was nice is that it was an evening party, so I was able to do the day event tour and then catch the bus the BN7.

Events / Re: NHC entry registration - how fast does it fill up?
« on: February 25, 2013, 05:55:17 AM »
Since NHC is "local" to NY, I'd expect that region to fill up fast.  The 15 entry limit may slow things a bit, but I'd be surprised if a few regions weren't filled by the end of the day Tuesday.
