My wife doesn't know of any Yossi Goldstein, but she said Broadway is a street on the West Side. We have a West Sider here on DDF, perhaps he can join the conversation and let us know if he knows this Yossi?
Resident west sider here!
This address isn't really on the west side, it's downtown denver. There is only one religious jew that i am aware of that lives in that area and it isn't him. I don't know any Yossi Goldstein either plus the address given is a bank.... sorry i'm just as clueless here...

How is it different than using a microphone that was left on before shabbos?

Was hoping you'd find us here :) Ohh my wife was studying so when I asked "is Broadway on the West Side?" She probably just said "uhu". I think I know the same guy who lives downtown and yeah he would not do this.

A bank address? C'mon guys this has to be a joke. Although a techie friend of mine just told me he's considering building a free version of the app to mess the guy up. Which tells me #1 the tech is possible (which I wasn't sure of) and #2 makes me question again if this is a joke.

It's a 26 story office building. I'm assuming it's not all used by the bank...

Not what I meant lol. I meant "it's a bank address, this app has got to be a joke."

But that's a valid point.

It's the bank headquarters so not unheard of, but then again:
He doesn't live there, he works there!
Reasonable enough, banks employ programmers too...
