2 days, 16 hours to go.

I wish we could see how the voting is getting on, wonder how many votes there are this time around!  :o

Ah, but this way you're not influenced in the way you vote. If for example you were undecided between 2 stories, you could check and might vote for the one which currently has more votes (or less, depending if you're an 'underdog' kind of person, hehe)

And how could it be 6am, I thought you were 2 hours ahead of me? There's no half-hour time zone in Finland, is there??

No, there is no half-hour time zone in Finland. I think he was exaggerating/rounding up for emphasis or just being vague for no apparent reason.  :)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Not if you could only see the votes after you have voted, also assuming there was some way of locking votes in so you can't change them.  :P

I was typing on my iPad, couldn't be bothered going through the hassle of switching keyboards and stuff so I rounded to the nearest hour...  ;)

18 people voted, every story has a vote and the most votes a story got is 11 so far. :)

Pretty good so far then! What's the gap between first and second? It usually seems to be pretty close, should be the same this time, no?

Sort of share your feeling on that one!  ;D
It was a very good writing exercise to me, but hardly wrote for popularity.

Three. So it still can change. ;)

It makes me so sad to have to be asleep when the voting comes out. Such frustration each time! I'm looking forward to the critiques of this one as I can easily hand them out to everyone. Still need to dedicate some time to rogue critiques too! T_T

The worst is that my brains knows it'll be up tomorrow early so I know I'm gonna wake up at 7 or 8 am and grab my phone and then I'll read everyone's comments and I'll be bloody awake!

It's perfectly timed for me, I guess Europe wins this one?  :D

I keep meaning to take a look at yours from last time since I said I would, just haven't found the right moment to do something like that. So much to do.  :-\

Still 1 hour to go...

And by the way, @xiagan: if you make the results come around 1-2pm UK time, then I think that everyone in the key time zones will be awake (US, Europe and Australia).
And Nora will be happy ;D

That's when we set up meetings with US/UK/China/India people at work, at UK lunchtime.
