More on the Stephen Colbert Bridge...
As I've mentioned before, a web site in Hungary is having an online vote to name a new bridge. Stephen Colbert, Hero, went from under 2000 votes to more than 400,000 in one day -- and the votes are still coming!
However, navigation in Hungarian can be a little tricky, so here is without a doubt the simplest way to vote, vote, and vote some more!
Apparently Blackwind, a fellow Canadian and contributor to the Colbert Nation message boards, has whipped up a little C++ doohickey that makes the voting easier...
Here's a set-it-and-forget-it program to aid with the bridge campaign. I've written it in C++ to ensure that it'll run on all machines without the download of additional dependencies. Note that C++ isn't my language of choice, so a bug or two may have slipped under my radar. If problems arise, I'll try to fix them in a timely fashion.

Instructions: Unzip it, run it!
And there you have it! Soar like an eagle, my friends, on the wings of truthiness.
