Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Ask Bally...
They (and a number of others) have been making non-subvertable slot machines of various designs for decades! And they have this thing called the Nevada Gaming Board (now, since gam(bl)ing is basically universal, there are state Gaming Boards all over the place...but it all started there; they are the model). This august body is responsible for overseeing the manufacturers of gam(bl)ing devices, and I know from firsthand experience that they do not fuck around with anybody. You follow the rules, or you're out. Period. And one of the rules is that all your code is available for inspection at any time, and another is that you can only have in your machine code that has been fully certified as fair and balanced.

So any Diebold or anybody else who says it is too costly, or lofgistically impossible, or any of the other oh-so-lame excuses I've heard so far is just plain full of shit.

New No no no... it's about prioritization
see, slots are for making money, so it's a high priority for the state, but electronic voting machines are for democracy, so it's not.
New See, I already thought of that!
They need to do something to tie that together at the ballot box. Like using dollar bills (or coins) to vote. If money is involved that closely with the end voter, they will have an interest in making it secure and accurate.


Is it enough to love
Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary

-- "Anything but Ordinary" by Avril Lavigne.
