  1. Being an American, I don’t get the joke about geography. All I can figure is that maybe Leeds is not on the ocean?

  2. I’m hoping they do well to some degree because I own stock in them (due to them buying iWon.com [aka The Excite Network, aka Focus Interactive, aka Interactive Search]) and would love it if the price kept going up and up and up!

    And yes, I should add a checkbox. Technical reason is that the Submit button goes off to a different domain, so I lose the ability to set cookies. I’d either have to have a proxy comment script on this domain or use Javascript. The former is more likely I think.
