Speaking of hotels, this just in from the RISKS Digest:
If you stayed at a Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, or Crowne
Plaza hotel and checked out between 24 Oct and 26 Oct 2002,
you are likely to have been one of 26,000 people who were
charged 100 times what they owed, such as $6,500 to $21,000
per night. A credit-processing error resulted in the decimal
points being dropped. Most of the charges were later reversed,
although many people discovered that their credit limits had
been exhausted. Overcharged guests will get two free nights
at any of those hotels.
The conference hotel was a Holiday Inn, but given that ILC started on
the 27th, looks like we just missed getting bitten by this one... ;-}
