I am not only inexcusably lazy, but I am also a ravening nitwit.
Yes I am. Don't argue with me.
You may have noticed how late the RACCies are. For a very long time the
effort of tabulating the results and cross checking them daunted me, and so
I put them off. Then it occurred to me:
The first year of my tenure I did them the HARD WAY: typing up a matrix and
filling them out by hand (three times so that any differences would
highlight flaws in my adding up).
But then I thought: `Hold up. Last year I didn't do them by hand. I just
typed them into one of them thar newfangled spreadsheets, which - wonder of
wonders - are particularly noteworthy for doing large tallies of numbers
WITHOUT GETTING THE ADDITION WRONG.'
< sounds of crickets chirping as the rest of RACC stares in horror at the
awesome extent of Saxon's ravening nitwit-ness >
So. After about five hours of work, the tallies for both the RACCies and
the RACCies Hall Of Fame have been completed. Not gonna do a full write-up
of the awards ceremony, because I just want to get this over with. Expect
the results to be posted within the next day.
