    Coming to our census...

    Two things every citizen must do,
    1) vote, and 2) do jury duty.

    I think we should make voting mandatory and non voting fineable as in Australia, it doesn't seem to create any major problems (though I don't know how many people get fined - but it could be a nice little earner).

    Judge dread...

    Or that Fletchers would be happily profiteering at every step of the post-quake “recovery” without pertinent questions being asked.

    Hmmm, John Judge is a director of Fletchers isn't he?

    Nice, at last a light level plane field,
    but let me know when it can do this...

    ...or get that View-Master©/parallax 3D thing going on
    (not that this link does its stereoscopic wonder justice either...)
    I think I have that Star Trek© View-Master© reel in a box somewhere deep in the Silverfish Ranch...

    Blue-Green Red allowed...

    You’d have to figure out a different way of selecting politicians.

    Could we perhaps grow them from biofilms, many do seem to have photosynthesis down to a fine art and are capable of a waving motion, the Beehive does look a bit like a stromatolite...
    Even the First-Lawyer-of-the-Free-World, Barack Obama, is promoting pond scum...
    ...oh hang on, that's some other kind of AlGore Bloom...

    Halo?... is there anyone out there?

    We’re using Sphinx search at the standard. Runs as a cron service doing delta updates every 15 minutes or so. Does a full recalc of the entire site sometime in the morning. Reads directly from the SQL server. You can pretty well custom fit it to any data source.

    Have I been asleep for a millennia and awoken
    in the Forerunner universe?
