I have spent a fair amount of time this week implementing what I am now calling Swimmer Labels. I may go back to Swimmer Numbers but I am not sure. I’d like to call them Swimmer Ids but I have used that terminology all through the plugin for the unique MySQL record id field that changing it would be a pretty sizable task.
On the good news front, I have auto-assigment of Swimmer Labels working under several different scenarios. I am particularly pleased with the auto-assignment of labels within an age group with a prefix – it is pretty slick if I do say so myself. Since the MacDolphins use this format, it was particularly important to me!
I travel a fair amount for work so over the last 15+ years have stayed in some nice hotels and som really crappy ones. This week I found one which truly does not suck. The Marriott at Charles de Gaule Airport is a nice hotel. It has everything I like in a hotel (except ESPN) and as anyone who has traveled in Europe will tell you, a known good hotel is not something to scoff at. It was such a pleasure to stay here, I decided to put together a list of hotels that don’t suck.
Why do I like the Marriott CDG?
- It is close to the airport (CDG).
- Free shuttle to and from CDG.
- Free Internet
- Full size bed!
- Excellent pillows
- Nice bar
- Reasonable (relative considering the crappy exchange rate) good prices
- Drinks and Snacks available without having to use room service
The next time I am in Paris I will almost certainly stay here the night before I fly out.
