Ah, it's that time of the year again, when we come at you grubbing for votes for this and that tech blog contest. Right now we're once again nominated in the Weblog Awards for best tech blog (thanks!) -- a title we've held for two years in a row now (double thanks!) -- and we'd be obliged if you headed on over and dropped a vote for us. If not, that's cool too, but you've got until 11:59 PM EST on Friday, December 15 to change your mind. The truly dedicated, however, are allowed to vote more than once (once every 24 hours, actually). Thanks again, everybody, it's been a helluva year.

Vote!
