Snippet: Great Poll!

January 31st, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

*snippet* Whilst linking to the two news articles for my previous entry, I noticed that at the bottom of the Leicester Mercury’s article about the fire there was the following poll question:

Take it – or leave it!
The newly-published Bain report suggests a raise of around 11% for firefighters, linked to heavy modernisation.
Should they take this or hang in for more?

The options? “Yes” or “No”.

So do you select “Yes they should take this” or “No they should take this” or “Yes they should hang in for more” or “No they should hang in for more”?

The votes at this point are 63% for “Yes” and 36% for “No” – do these people actually know what they have voted for – cause I ain’t got a clue!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".


  1. I just wanted to whine that I want you to sign up for Bloglet or another notification system so I can know as soon as you post and I can come guess the movies right away. 😉

    The “new” Guess That Movie system will have a notification system and “instantaneous” yes/no answers (although I might add a 30 minute delay into the system to try and prevent the same person trying over and over again the space of a few minutes)

    Kymberlie – Beebware already pings , so if you use a system that gets the most recently-updated blogs from there (such as Blogrolling), you can see when he updates.
