in thread If I *had* to pick, I'd pick:

spending my time on the report I have to submit tomorrow, instead of procrastinating by typing me-too posts.

I voted for the first time three polls ago and was also not allowed to vote anymore after that. Plus the vote script also seems to use $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} when it really should be using $ENV{HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR} if present.

Right now for every corporate/University network running for a single proxy, only one person can vote. But a dialup user can easily vote multiple times since he'll probably have a different IP adress each time he's logged in.

I propose using the user name for the poll vote status.

    Indeed. This same thing has been happening to me. It has happened to me the last few times I've voted. I have been chalking it up to being behind a proxy, thus allowing only one of the three PM members at work here to vote. Perhaps I was wrong, though. I believe I was the first one to vote out of our little group here, today, and I still received the message that I had already voted.

[oiskuu]: Don't you think it's disturbing that the washing machine manual would say not to start it with pets inside?
[oiskuu]: So, how long did it take you to grow up?
[oiskuu]: Have you ever had your temperature taken from the other end?
[marto]: I read about a case where people were at a launderette, or whatever they're called in the US, and as a joke, put their toddler in with the washing, then closed the door
[Your Mother]: (Work in progress.)
[marto]: unaware that the model in question started the cycle automatically, provided the money/token had already been provided
[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
