Subject:Because people are idiots...
Time:09:24 pm
The deadline for getting on the electoral register if you want to vote in the EU referendum has been extended to midnight tomorrow. No doubt hundreds of people will still be trying at one second to midnight, since there are a lot of idiots around, but if you actually want to vote and haven't already registered I'd suggest trying ASAP.

The new megaupload might be perfect for your needs?

Oops, wrong window. That was for your free file hosting question.

Downloading through my browser option. Haven't seen any adverts or pop-ups. (But I have adblock plus.)

Hitting speeds of 270mb/s which is my maximum internet speed.

Looks fine. 6939 files in a zip folder.

Unzipped to desktop okay.

Haven't run the .exe. FF installs itself does it?

No, the executable is a search program, I should have said - you just copy the whole directory into a subdirectory off C e.g. C:\ffcd7, run the readme HTML page in the top level to see how it all works. It's basically a web site on a disk.

Oh, and people who were too stupid to register to vote before the very last minute, are I think too stupid to be allowed to vote in it anyway.

Reminds me of the Friday evening rush when I was Hugo administrator, both on the last day of nominating and the last day of voting. (Our website didn't crash.)

You didn't have a couple of hundred thousand idiots using it.
