Backster with a Survey

Posted by Mike Merritt in Surveys and Ecetera on

So, Independence Week 2006 didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I wanted to do at least one article a day, but it didn’t happen. I will not fail next year! After all, if I fail, the terrorists win…

So, before I head to bed, I leave you with a long survey. Read on…

UPDATE: Sorry that it’s way down the page. I’ll blame it on the absolutely hideous code that’s being used to create the table. I’ll try to work on it.
