It's Award Time!
Having spent far more time than I should have, wading through more than a thousand votes in the 1999 Aardvark Awards and calculating the results to the last decimal place, I'm pleased to announce the results.

Unfortunately, due to the horrendous amount of time it's taken to get this far, the drawing of the lucky voter who will receive a free Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer no-ball mouse will have to wait until tomorrow.

Many thanks to all those who took the time to vote and if I'm crazy enough to think about doing this again next year -- someone remind me what I've said today -- please!

0867 -- Have You Been Charged?
If anyone has been incorrectly charged for 0867 use from a residential line, can they please contact me with some details. I've had some disturbing second-hand reports that I'd like to get confirmed if possible.

More to come!
