You're up against a bot when booking a table at a top restaurant

hahaha, so funny. How desperate are people to go to these restaurants!

If you want a good table at a top restaurant in Silicon Valley you had better be a good programmer.

Coders in San Francisco are using custom written programmes, or bots, to grab the good tables leaving other diners frustrated.

The bots watch restaurant websites to spot when tables become available then reserve them before humans can react.

The use of bots has made it almost impossible to get good tables at some of the most popular Valley eateries.You're up against a bot when booking a table at a top restaurant [bbc.co.uk]

Wow...a restaurant full of people who write bots to get into a restaurant. Sounds like a place I would like to avoid.
