Hulk for President!

As of this morning, there have been over 165,000 hits on the halloween webcam, so the halloween decorations have been pretty popular. The HULK continues to lead the voting for president - current standings with just over a week to go are:
HULK-8,658 Bush-8,400 Kerry-7,902

I wonder if having Hulk enter the race as the Green Party candidate is scaring some folks (here is the official Hulk for President statement) as someone wrote a "Kerry-Bot" that continually accessed the webcam to vote hundreds of times for him - needless to say, these votes were thrown out and that IP address was "banned" from the webcam.

Regardless, this has sure been a hoot and it's a bummer I gotta wait 4 years to do this again! ;-)

Webcam gone Wild!

The halloween webcam has gotten fairly popular - over 35,000 hits and climbing. The "vote for your favorite candidate" by toggling a zone of lights seems to be fairly popular - The HULK is currently winning with 1,640 votes, followed by Bush with 1,531 and then Kerry with 1,462 ... but we still have two weeks before the election, so anything can happen! ;-)

Blue Heron Hermit Club

As a followup to my last post, the Halloween stuff is up and running, which includes the infamous halloween webcam - it's real simple to add some "vote" buttons for Bush, Kerry, or the Hulk which oughta be fun ... unless my wife nixes the whole idea since she feels strongly against one of those candidates.

I'm also starting up the Blue Heron Hermit Club where once a month, neighborhood tele-commuters like me can go out to lunch - we'll see how that goes.

I've been looking forward to the upcoming weekend for a long time - my wife and kids are off to Kansas City, so I'm a "free" man without the usual family demands on my time ... so I can work on the basement ... plus I can do stuff like load the dishwasher "wrong" and not get nagged! ;-)
