Doing My Civic Duty

This morning I voted, and of course blogged my thoughts at the moment. However, Blogger's posting over e-mail seems to be broken - so I'll have to more or less repeat them here. That's probably a good thing, as I'm pretty sure my thought's weren't that relevant to begin with.

Voting was pretty much uneventful. The line wasn't too long. It was actually a bit surreal, standing there with all these people from my neighborhood, knowing essentially nobody there. All there, just silently waiting our turn to make are tiny mark on this election.

When I got to the front of the line, one of the poll workers was discussing with another worker how the first voting machine had just locked up. Ahh, the joys of bringing computers to the world voting. The suggestion by the head man in charge? I kid you not - reboot.

I'd offer to install Linux on the device, but I'm pretty sure they were too busy to hear it.

Well, there you have it - please excuse me if you see three more posts like this one flood in. It's just Blogger finally catching up with me.
