HOA: technical difficulties

Well, now I’ve done it.

My computer at home suffered an epic fail over the weekend, and will be out for repairs for a couple of weeks, at least. Consequently, I’ll have to work on HOA stuff at work.

I arrived early today and compiled the 1988 results, which are up now. However, assembling the eligibles list is much more time-consuming (and, after all, I do have my job to think of). I’ll get to it when I can—probably after the workday’s over tomorrow, but there will now be a slight lull before the 1989 election begins. I’ll still keep voting open for a full week.

I apologize for the delay, which is especially frustrating because the election just past featured the highest participation rate yet.

Watch this space.

Re: HOA: technical difficulties

I think it's a brilliant list so far, and because I haven't been posting in the HoA lately I'd just like to say here that you're doing a marvelous job schleuse. After my job as the 1980s compiler I've gotten even more respect for the incredible amount of work that you've put into this, and I'm really sorry I haven't been participating that much.

I'm sure everyone will forgive some delays. Oh, and I'll try to participate a few times the coming weeks.
