I just looked at the Recreation.Gov site and it appears that the full quota of 225 day-hiker permits were allocated for every day of the Half Dome "season" (May 24. 2013 - Oct. 14, 2013) except for the following dates:

Sun, Aug. 25: 1 space still available
Thu, Aug. 29: 1 space still available
Mon, Sept. 2: 1 space still available
Wed, Sept. 18: 1 space still available
Thu, Sept. 19: 1 space still available
Sun, Sept. 22: 1 space still available

Tue, Sept. 24: 52 spaces still available
Wed, Sept. 25: 117 spaces still available

Fri, Sept. 27: 1 space still available
Sun, Sept. 29: 1 space still available

Mon, Sept. 30: 48 spaces still available
Tue, Oct. 1: 112 spaces still available
Wed, Oct. 2: 181 spaces still available
Thu, Oct. 3: 141 spaces still available
Fri, Oct. 4: 27 spaces still available
Mon, Oct 7: 188 spaces still available
Tue, Oct. 8: 192 spaces still available
Wed, Oct. 9: 205 spaces still available
Thu, Oct. 10: 148 spaces still available
Fri, Oct. 11: 140 spaces still available
Sun, Oct. 13: 106 spaces still available
Mon, Oct. 14: 189 spaces still available

So while the Park Service predicts that there will be about 50 or so spaces available during the "Daily Permits" during most of the summer, for anyone set on climbing Half Dome this year who did not get a permit through the initial lottery, it appears that the weekdays of last two weeks of the "Half Dome season" which are the first two weeks of October, would offer the best chance of obtaining a permit through the daily lottery for those dates.

I was in the lottery but didn't get an email of success or failure. How can I find out my results?

Looks like there was some problem with the notification system. Here's an email I received this morning:

Dear Valued Recreation.gov Visitor,

Email notifications for our 2013 Pre-Season Cables on Half Dome lottery process were delivered prematurely. While this does not change your application status or results, the email did contain incorrect policy and fee information. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

An email containing updated policy and fee information will be sent out on Monday, April 15, 2013. Your lottery status will also be accessible on your Recreation.gov account on that date.

We do appreciate your understanding and recommend you check Recreation.gov for future updates.

Thank you,
Recreation.gov
