It's that time of year again, the time when ISPs throughout the world struggle under the combined volume of several million rejection letters emails from El Bulli.
The demand that we have received at the first moment has again surpassed our limited possibilities for one season and we regret not to be able to full fill more reservation requests.
We thank you sincerely for all your interest and we will be at your disposal if you wish to revise the situation during the season, near your available dates as we must confirm all the reservations 10 days in advance.

I think there's something heroic about an establishment that only ever has to write two or three standard emails and still manages to get itself lost in translation. It's almost like they're trying to perfect a deconstructed Dear John. It's arguably an improvement on two years ago (the last time I remembered to enter the October lottery), but there's still some way to go.
Fingers crossed for next year, then...
