  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    UI folks?

    I'm always amazed at how many people spend every day working with UI's that I've designed. Major corporations. Entire branches of government. All working with interfaces I pulled straight out of my ass. I'm an engineer. I know nothing about usability and style. Just look at the way I dress. Why would you have me design your UI?

    It's really freaky to watch a room full of data entry drones working with a UI I wrote. They know it. They live it 40 hours a week. They can work it hyper speed with their eyes closed, And I whipped it up at midnight before morning code cutoff.

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
