EDIT 2: Round 1 is over, voting is closed, and I'm sitting in #1! I have an automatic entry now to the finals, but those won't start until the end of the month, and we don't know what they will be yet!

EDIT: If you want to check my current position in the vote, check here.

Original blog entry follows.
Okay, so as most of you know I think, I'm Australian.

Well, iiNet (one of Australia's largest internet providers, and the one I actually use in fact) is having a special competition at the moment. They're having a search to try and find Australia's top geek. The top prize? An all expenses paid trip to a convention in the US next year, like Comicon, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) or the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX).

Well, I'd have to say that I'm pretty geeky, so....all I really need is your votes to tip the scales. =D

You can vote for me as Australia's top geek by clicking or copy/pasting the following URL into your browser.

If you want to read my profile there as well, you might discover a few interesting (and very geeky) things about me that not all of you would be aware of. ;)

    ..."shameless"? From asking for votes?

    Bad Archaic, bad! Just kidding.

    But because your description there is neat, informative, and organized, and because I love your shades, you have my vote. Good luck.

    Ciao~

    My shades?

    Oh, right. Those are actually just my regular glasses. I've got that thing which makes them go darker in sunlight. Must've been pretty strong sunlight the day that was taken.

    Yup, that's what they're called. Pretty costly too, but I find I just can't live without them any more. Though they have led to the occasional misunderstanding. I once had some students get really upset with me in their teacher evaluations at the end of semester, saying I was always wearing sunglasses in class. I vaguely remember one being so offended they went and talked to the lecturer about it.

    You should get your students to vote for you as well.

    It's out of semester, so I don't have any students currently.

    How long does this go on for? I might be able to pull a couple more people for it.

    You got my vote.

    Not sure how much longer it goes exactly. They're only at stage on right now, they haven't whittled down the field to just the finalists. I'll probably post another blog when they do that.

    It'll certainly be going more than just a few days at least, so keep those votes coming. =D

    This. Simply this.

    For the love of God man, don't switch back to regular glasses! Worst. Choice. Of. My. Life. Now it hurts my eyes to go outside.

    I voted earlier today (well, local time yesterday) when you had the link up the Bulbagarden Facebook feed :p I remember I liked it too.

    Never mind the other "geeks" out there. I checked some, they were lame.

    Voted. I plan on going to Comic-Con next year (god forbid I get tickets though) so if you end up going, we should meet up!

    Yes, I voted. You might be the biggest geek in Australia, so you definitely deserve the vote. :)

    Best of luck!
