Thanks for your patience on the polls. I haven't overlooked them, but I haven't been able to post them for a while because of a tech problem at my end that we just accidently resolved--My wife had to work from home for the last year, so I rigged a router to the line that allowed both of us online at the same time. Suddenly, I started experiencing "time-outs" when I tried to upload anything that took more than a few minutes to finish. This obviously included the polls. No matter what we tried, we couldn't figure out what was happening until she moved back to her Pittsburgh office a few days ago.
My router had an antennae on it (which I didn't use for security reasons), but apparently something powerful and electronic in our neighborhood was triggering/interfering with it and inadvertently messing with our DSL transmissions. It would cause the ISP to register an overload here and cut me off the line for a split second, which obviously made it impossible to post the polls. Problem is now solved (I chopped off the fuckin' antennae) and polls will be uploaded by tonight.
Sorry for not mentioning this before, but we were trying to figure out what was wrong before I posted anything in explanation--and it turned out to be just (still) unexplained random weirdness. Situation is now resolved. Sorry for the delay, everyone.
Additional note, just for completeness... A lot of volunteer fireman live in our area (including my wife) and we think (not sure yet) that the communications equipment they use was causing our antennae problem. Nobody ever noticed it before probably because our area is semi rural and no one uses "wireless" computer access here normally.
