The computer issues that vexed hundreds of people trying to snag seats yesterday for this summer's Diner en Blanc picnic were fixed.

This morning, in 24 minutes, the spots were snapped up.

Organizers even added 200 seats - for a total of 2,500 people who will gather Aug. 22 to find out the pop-up picnic's location.

By comparison, it took 10 days to sell out last year.

All is not lost for the thousands of people on the wait list.

I'm hearing that a few giveaways are planned.
