Oh, arsecandles! This was bound to happen at some point. My old life and my new life have crashed together in a rather unfortunate fashion.

Or stand there and get 2 holes drilled in me, one from either end.

voting time and Poke
are both up for a bunch of things which is great. But unfortunately Bakertweet
is now directly up against Nike Chalkbot

Not quite sure what I can offer by means of bribes for votes, but willing to take suggestions…
