Election! (02 Nov 2004 at 18:24)
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...

So true, Tom7. And so sad. I hope it won't come to that.
But hey, you did your best!

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.

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.
