Running for Office: It’s Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner "My name is Sean Tevis. I’m an Information Architect in Kansas running for State Representative. I’ve decided to “retire” my current State Representative. I’m going to win. This is my story (XKCD homage style) so far." Lets get this guy in office!
  • This is a man I would like to see get elected. This is a man who is almost certainly not going to get elected.
  • I got "Database Error: Unable to connect to your database. Your database appears to be turned off or the database connection settings in your config file are not correct. Please contact your hosting provider if the problem persists." has he lost already?
  • looks like he got linked from all over the place and it crashed his site
  • There's a few too many references to internet traditions that I am aware of in there, like he's trying really, really hard to appeal to geeks. (Also it's back up now.)
  • I think he is very aware of the level of nerdiness and yet has no shame.
  • It's back up, and he's beaten the Kansas record (if that part is accurate, I don't know, I'm not always good with sarcasm).
  • He's commented on Mefi in response to their post, and he turns out to be Mefi user #1911. He has webcred, I guess.
  • Trac, both your links point to the same URL. We so wish YOU had webcred... kidding...
  • Oh yeah, uh, totally deliberate. I was just testing you.
  • He's reached his target now. Good lad.
