I've confirmed that there are still rooms available. If you call
outside the Meadows' regular business hours, though, you may get a false
report that they are sold out. The most reliable way to register for a
room at the Meadows is by email or fax, but if you want to do it by
phone, call between 9 and 5 Mountain Daylight Time.
I've just updated http://localhost:8000/location/lodging#reservations
with a note to that effect.

We could, but
a) Someone would have to take the time to do it :-)
b) No place is as close to the venue, and most are not as nice
c) Before the rooms are actually gone, it would probably undercut our
goodwill with the people at Aspen Meadows, who are actually bending
over backward to make BoostCon work out there.
