FYI it’s only $49.50 at lightmalls anyway. However I’ve voted on behalf of all you people who want to save 98 cents, or who prefer to buy from Tmart.

Tools >Delete Browsing history>check Cookie box>Delete then reload page. This will delet all your Cookies, don’t know how to delete just a single cookie.

You can usually view and delete individual cookies from your browsers preferences section, but if you’re running Firefox probably the easiest way to do this is to install something like the Cookie Monster addon, and temporarily disable cookies for the Tmart site. Then all you need to do is refresh the page and keep voting.

Might want to be conservative here though. Make sure the King wins, but don’t go overboard.

TMart is going to wonder why there are so many votes and so few actual sales.

This all reminds me of when I was about 10 years old and had an early morning paper route. The Hartford Courant newspaper would pay $ for any new subscribers. As a paperboy, whenever I signed up a new subscriber, I would be paid cash for that new customer. I could even go off my route, so long as I got the commitment signed.

One day I got the idea of hopping on my bike and knocking on doors to sign up new customers. One Saturday I signed up 7. Normally that would be worth about $5.60 (50 years ago). I called my handler to give him the slips and he told me that if I waited, there was a contest coming up in 2 weeks. Contests were good and happened twice a year. New customers were worth both cash AND points good towards prizes. Also a few top achievers could win trips to baseball games etc. I decided to wait and hold the slips until the contest started. I didn’t want to take a chance of loosing any of these customers, so I decided to start delivering them the paper each morning anyway, even though some of them were off my route. In order to get the extra papers I would need I would ride into the center of town and buy them out of a coin operated paper box. The papers for my regular customers were dropped off to me in a bundle each morning. I couldn’t get the extra papers dropped of without turning in the slips. Each morning I would clean out the coin operated paperbox and each morning there would be a few more papers there.

The next weekend I decided to try and get even more customers, and I did. The poor guy that filled the paperbox probably couldn’t figure out why all of a sudden so many papers were being bought, no matter how many he put in it, they were selling out. Just before the contest started he installed a much larger box and by then I was up to over 20 extra papers. Then the contest started and I turned in my slips, didn’t have to deliver to customers off my route and didn’t have to buy the papers out of the box. Suddenly the paper box guy was down to his usual number of sales. I’m sure he never knew why there was the sudden and temporary rush of papers at that one box.

As for me, I did quite well. Because I got a 2 week head start on the contest, and I worked hard, I got paid cash for the new customers, got lots of points towards prizes, won 3 trips, and was paid an additional $20.00 for having the most sales is the State.

It sorta flattering that they’ve given us a -5000 handicap and the Refurbished Samsung a 10,000 headstart. Big Smile

So we lost Sad

I found out how to "hack" this just as the voting ended.  So when you click "vote", all it does is look at the current number of votes, add one, then send a "POST" with that number for the specific item.  All you have to do in Chrome is right click on the vote count, inspect element, edit text, change to whatever number you want, then click "vote".  As you can see I changed the vote on the LED bulb to 501.

Now JonnyC if you could just figure out how to “hack” the Price……… Smile

Haha, I did look, but that's the only thing that can be "hacked" Smile  Hopefully they fix it, because that is really some poor design.

If they don't fix it, it's just a matter of who does the hack right before midnight.
