No Tickets for You!

Ticket Office Sign
The Cal Athletic Ticket Office sucks! Last year, I purchased student section tickets before I knew I wasn’t going to be a student. I was worried about my tickets when I went to the first game so I asked an employee if they would still work. He said if the card swiped (the tickets are stored on my ID card) that I would be good for the season. It worked for that game and the next game. Last week, however, I received an email letting me know that I would no longer be allowed to attend games unless I could verify student status. I asked for a refund or an upgrade, with me paying the difference, but the Athletic Office, hereby known as SATAN, would not help me out. The end result: SATAN pocketed my payment and revoked my ticket at no benifit to them! I contacted a few student advocate groups, but they all said that there is nothing I can do unless I have written proof that they told me I could get in. Luckily, I have a friend that dates a member of the Football team and she might be able to help me out…

My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
