It is indeed. Realised about 30 seconds after posting, but too lazy to change it.

If you're going to be picky, you could at least vote. Or are you protesting against my poor spelling?

Strangely, it still shows no vote from you. What did you vote for?

Trismagistus. I've voted again now. Maybe I clicked the wrong thing last time, or something.
Is Bartlebooth from Perec?

It's twigged this time.

Yup. I think that the references might deserve a post of their own.

Sorry to ask this but who are you?

Argh, sorry! I forgot I changed my username. Same person as stlye_exercise, which was a username set up for me by my cousin and my flatmate, and I never liked. This is the closest I could get to the username I use for most interweb things.

Ah hah - so, does the poll reflect what you are actually going to call it?

Still waiting for my new slave unit...although I have a case to put it in. Which is kinda frustrating.

Anyway...are you going to call me? Go on, you know it'll make my night :)

Pretty much. My vote is in there as what it is already called, as I had to choose something when I installed windoze.

Carry the case. It will make you look powerful and no one will ever check the bag.

I'll call this evening. At the moment I'm still in good old MV library. If you were on MSN...

And have you voted yet?
