Google Idol victoriously concluded

2006-06-24

in Films and movies

Our estimation of when the day ticked over on the Google Idol server was wrong. Rather than doing so at 3:00pm GMT, as expected, it did so at some time before 10:30am.

That said, it doesn’t really matter: “Voting is closed! Mica Prazak has won! New competition beginning shortly.” Anyone wishing to comment on this can do so on Mica’s blog.

Many thanks to all those who helped. It’s a relief to have the contest over. Now, I can put something else up at the top of my blog.
