|Man, I am totally consumed by election-watching mania, and there aren't even any polls closed yet. I must say that my current favorite source of data at this early time is off-shore futures markets (shades of Adm. Poindexter) where people essentially bet on the outcome of the race. Right now the "smart money" is on Kerry by a large margin. Check out world sports exchange (lower numbers here mean favored) or tradesports for live odds.|
Back to work for a while...
|The tables have turned, at least on wsex.|
|The only solution is civil war.|
|My smart dollars...!|
|So true, Tom7. And so sad. I hope it won't come to that.
But hey, you did your best!
|PA is blue and proud!|
|My Tom7-moment-of-the-day just happened... While listening to my mp3s at work and Shithope was playing, I alt-tab to our stock-art library and I click on the search field - the search term from my previous search was visible as "Rope", and I hear you sing "check the tightROPE".|
|Haha. Is day really the appropriate timescale?|
|Maybe week or month might be more appropriate.. I do remember another Tom7 moment at work a couple months ago when I needed to replicate a company logo. The proper typeface must not be ignored, and it turned out that Tahoma bold was the closest font we had to the logo.|
|Oh, that's even better. =)|
|Election results left me in a depressed stupor for two days. Lets hope it doesn't happen too often over the next 4 years :(. BTW - my friends in Brussels, as I do, find this incomprehensible.|
