It took Excite TWO DAYS to give me the "undeliverable mail" notice.  Until then, I could only assume my email, like the many I send out without error each week, had made it through okay.  Way to SNAFU, Excite Email System.

And dang, I picked just the wrong hour to walk away from the computer to do some errands.  Well, I guess this is what I get for waiting until the last minute.

In the time it took me to get up, call the dentist and the bank, get a bagel, and refresh my inbox, the ballots had been "processed" and the task of determining a winner handed over to the vote-counting gurus.

What provisions will we need in future contests to handle SNAFU's like this?
