Topic: Must Defeat the Evil Kari the Librarian!
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 5, 2009 11:07PM)
Our beloved brother, Elsdon, has a request of the community. His daughter Trish has an extremely rare opportunity to represent Cthulhu and blog backstage for a radio station for a big concert which involves Springsteen amongst others. If you could, please take a gander at this page and vote for Trish Defever. Over on the other board we have been trying to keep up the battle but the Evil Kari the Librarian (how the hell can you send a librarian to rock concert!) has enlisted her family to pound in votes all day and has taken the lead. We must retake the lead and hold it until April 8th at 5PM. So go there vote, go back in your browser and revote, then repeat until your fingers bleed in homage the great sleeping god, Cthulhu. Your reward will be unspeakable.

Here is the link: http://www.1055triplem.com/pages/4042025.php

Go forth and spread darkness upon the face of the deep and pass it along. I mean it's not every day you can dash the hopes and dreams of an evil librarian. Your friends would relish the thought.

28/28 at the moment. I almost voted for poor Jason at 0% because I felt sorry for him, but went ahead and voted for Trish.

Try options, disable cookies, go vote, return, go vote, etc. Don't forget to enable cookies when you finish.
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 6, 2009 11:10PM)
BTW, you can block cookies just on that site as an "exception" and not affect your normal settings.



Ok, I have now conjured the ULTIMATE SPELL against the Evil Kari.

If you are using Firefox, make sure you have set the cookies to block for this site, then download the iMacro addin.
Restart Firefox.
You should have the iMacro window to the left.
Open a tab for the vote place.
Click the REC tab in the macro window.
Click Record.
Scroll down to Trish's name and click the radio button.
Then press vote.
Go to the macro window and press Stop to stop recording.
Now go to PLAY.
Press the PLAY LOOP button and test it.
If it works, set the MAX to 1000 and let it run.
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 6, 2009 11:41PM)
I am KICKING myself for not thinking of this sooner. This works AMAZINGLY!!!

You can run multiple instances of firefox and have multiple instances of this macro running. I now have 5 instances across 2 computers on my network pumping in 5000 votes tonight while I watch a movie and go to sleep.
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 6, 2009 11:49PM)
So if we have a bunch of us doing the Macros it will be like taking candy from a baby! Without even touching it I've now pumped in over 200 votes in about 20 minutes, or rather my LEGION OF DOOM has.
Message: Posted by: kaytracy (Apr 7, 2009 12:19AM)
NO Samurai, I had to ask my other half, I was trying to figure it out too, then Clifford and his minions of doom......feh!

I've been checking this throughout the day and we've seemed to always be 2% behind!!!!

Is there a possibility that when we vote for Trish that it also goes to the evil one?!?!
Message: Posted by: Slim King (Apr 7, 2009 09:55AM)
Perhaps the Evil One has her own version of Clifford the Red?
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 7, 2009 11:47AM)
Sumthin ain't right. No updates to the numbers at all.
Message: Posted by: x-treem (Apr 7, 2009 12:07PM)
30 Trish / 32 Kari

I just went there and voted 5 times but Trish is still down 32% to 31%!
Message: Posted by: Vic Nadata (Apr 7, 2009 01:38PM)
Trish up 32 to 31!!!!
Message: Posted by: Slim King (Apr 7, 2009 04:10PM)
This is EXCITING isn't it!!!!!!!! :)
Message: Posted by: Peabody (Apr 7, 2009 04:15PM)
I just put in 5 more votes...Trish is up 33 to 31!!!
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 7, 2009 08:31PM)
Let me add one bit more of instructions on the Macro. If you edit the Macro and put the following on the next line:

WAIT SECONDS=5

I am concerned that perhaps without the wait, the vote is not being uploaded properly or consistently. If this whole thing works, this should help stabilize the results of the macro.

But our efforts do appear to be working, the Evil Kari is being warded off by our Talismans of Terror. It appears she is also putting in votes, but I don't think it is at the level we can do so. The percentages of the bottom 4 are dropping and the percentages of the top 2 are rising. That is quite an accomplishment actually.

It's dead even right now !!!!!
Message: Posted by: Spellbinder (Apr 7, 2009 11:44PM)
Remember, the evil one is a librarian. She has probably Googled the bunch of us in here voting for Trish and has enlisted the help of librarians around the world to do the same. We sometimes forget that this is a PUBLIC forum.
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 8, 2009 02:23PM)
Today is the last day and Kari is in a dead heat. Apparently she is more evil than we thought. Keep voting and defeat this scourge upon the earth. The lives of Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello depend upon us!
Message: Posted by: Peabody (Apr 8, 2009 03:41PM)
I just voted 10 times and its still a dead heat at 35% to 35%!

Its time to bring in the big guns. I'm a member of another, very large forum that has nothing to do with magic. I'll putting out a call for assistance in their Off Topic section. If its not too late, they could crash the servers.

I'll be back!

Back ahead, VOTE LIKE THE WIND!
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 8, 2009 07:02PM)
On my stuff, the page will no longer fully load. I think the site is being overloaded or something. I can still vote manually, but the macro won't work with the page not completing.
Message: Posted by: Clifford the Red (Apr 8, 2009 11:48PM)
My brothers and sisters, it appears our Bizarre Warriors have been resoundingly victorious against the Evil Librarian. We now hand the bloody and decapitated body of the Evil Librarian to Brother Elsdon and his lovely, yet bizarre daughter, Trish to await the results of the judges. Please let us know the results! Congratulations!

Now if only we could get this kind of response and unity on other projects too.

I'm still laughing about Billy's comment :)
