Default I need RCTech Members Help!!!

Alright everyone, I need your HELP!!! Some of you know I am always connected to my cell phone. There's a news site for fans (all 4 of us) who still use and enjoy Palm phones called webOS Roundup and they are running a video contest. There are two categories, Funniest and Most Original and the winning video gets a new HP/Palm Pre 2. I threw something together that, honestly isn't up to my usual production standards but they thought was funny and has made it into the final-5. Here's where I need your help.

Follow these links:
http://www.webosroundup.com/2011/04/...-a-palm-pre-2/

http://www.micropoll.com/a/MicroPoll...3893&mode=html

Vote for Gary Katzer.

How do we win? You need to vote! That's right. And a vote for Melvin and Gary is also a vote for webOS Internals, the awesome homebrew developers out there for webOS users. Think xda-developers but for Palm. That's right, if Gary and Melvin win they will tell webOSRoundup.com to donate the $100 to webOS Internals! Voting closes Friday, April 22 (although there's talk they may extend voting through the entire weekend) so please, get out and vote!!!

Get-out-the-vote video below:

How many times? Did you vote from IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera all at home and at work, your mobile device, XBox 360, PS3, PSP and 3DS?

Well?

Didja?

It says right in the rules:
Now when it comes to voting we know that we ask that you vote from no more than 5 different devices. We know that some of you are super geniuses and can build all sorts of goodies that can beat any poll security, but we ask you to refrain so that people who donít have a bot can have their voice heard.

Besides, you being up in Chicago this should seem natural. After all they win elections up there the old fashioned way... they steal them

Default The votes are in and....

And I lost... but I won! Here's the scoop...

The George W. Bush video won. I must admit it was pretty funny and it was the one I was most concerned with. Also didn't win the $100. Ok, so strike 2. But HP has stepped up to the plate and will be sending all 10-finalists new Palm/HP Pre 2's. Pretty cool and must admit I didn't expect it. BTW, I have no idea what the voting tally was but I am inquiring. So thanks to all that helped and voted, it was appreciated.
