It was my Internet Explorer connection that got in first.  I can't seem to find out how to get my access time.

In the History folder, it only says the most recent time and I accidentally opened it a second time.  That's the time it shows.

I do know I submitted at 12:06 after taking my time.  But, it doesn't show an exact time.

My best estimate for when I got in was around 12:03.

If anyone has a trick for getting more detailed history in IE, pass it on.

I chose 6 downtown and 0 non-downtown

Closest to convention center/waitlist.

I received an offer for the Old Town hotel.

We don't mind staying about a mile out, and I like the restaurants around the Hampton and Wyndham so fingers are crossed for one of them. I was going to pick The Bristol, but didn't see it on the list so put in the Omni instead.

I used Safari and i can't figure out how to get it to give me the exact time i got in. The cache just lists the time to the minute not to the second as far as i can tell. If anyone knows how to get an exact time on safari on a mac i'd be more specific.
It says i got in at 12:01pm
My picks were
Hard Rock Studio Room
Hilton San Diego Bayfront
Omni San Diego
SD Marriott Marquis and Marina
Manchester Grand Hyatt
Solmar

Didn't pick any non downtown hotels. Didn't want to take a chance they would skip my downtown choices if i picked any non downtown hotels.
I know they are not supposed to do that but i honestly don't really trust them very much so i didn't want to take a chance.
i also checked closest to the convention center and put me on the waitlist.

Husband's computer:
His cache has no entries matching the ones we're looking for, but he has one called predictor-origin:https://cci.onpeak.info that's timestamped 9:02:06, which must be his submission time, because he looked at the clock when he got in and it was still 9:00.
