you have to wait for the page to load, then scroll down just a little bit. The poll is in a minor window about the middle of the page (left to right).

If you did that you'd be sinking to microsoft's level... you don't want to do that do you?

Hmmm, works fine with IE5 but no voting buttons appear in 'ole Netscape. Still, we're not far behind.

VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go in there, vote, delete cookies, vote again. if there's no difference, go to metacrawler or google or something, type in the city where u live+public proxies. use the server details in sys prefs->network->proxies.

Sure, this is sinking to microsoft's level (well, maybe not that low) but hey, if pcusers see that poll+ads for new iMac etc. they'll probably consider getting a mac. most pc users use pcs because they haven't heard of any alternative and it's just "easier" to go buy a PC instead of getting a mac cos they're "not used to that" although it's as simple as hell to use a mac - even the presedential pretzel-shrub can use one (apple.com/myths)

*Netscape polls reflect the views of those who choose
to respond and are not scientifically valid surveys.
While you may repeatedly access the poll results page,
only one vote per user is counted.*

my question is how does it figure the "one vote per user" thing?

is it ip address? or cookies?
cant be cookies because i wiped out all my cookies and still it doesnt change. maybe i should ask a pc user..since thery are good at cheating..huh!

wiping out the cookies for that poll and then voting again works.

Oh, that's what I was doing wrong.

But seriously, I would have expected a 95/5 split rather than the current 54/46 breakdown. Wonder if this is a function of Mac users being more a community and thus responding to votes a la this forum, or if most PC users really do PREFER Macs.

Either way... even if we lose, its an eye opener for Peecee users... we're not just 1 per 1000...
