      Hmmm. How does one solve this? Wouldn't be fair to re-run it with more voters (imagine, if you will, the devious McCabe unit getting relatives out to six degrees of separation sign up as members to vote for his favorite emperor ). Three way final?

        Can't change the rules half way through the comp, otherwise you'll be charged with match fixing... :)

            _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
            _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
            _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
            _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                  A tiebreaker is on - but I don't vote. Whether that changes the outcome or not - who knows? In the event of another tie, I WILL vote - so it will be all my fault!
                  Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.
