President Elect

It was 16-3 to McCain on TV downstairs. I came upstairs and put on the BBC website. All of a sudden the projections started coming in and the numbers shot up, it was level pegging until around 30 and then the blue kept going up and up to 103. It's now 103-34 to Obama.

Back in the 80s when I was in college, we had a single Apple IIe on which we used to play Wizardry and other games. We also had a copy of President Elect which was a big favourite. Once I even played it in real time. I was up all night in the computer room, choosing where to spend my campaign dollars, taking part in TV debates and the watching the results roll in. It was a gripping experience and watching the counter roll round on the BBC website took me right back.
