And we thought butterfly ballots were bad.

I just went through the logo page and wrote down my favorite 20 logos in one
column, and gave them a rank in the other. Then translated that into the
voting list using the combo boxes (not the buttons).  The total process took
20 minutes.

I am on FF3 on windows and didn't notice any reordering aside the
(un?)expected reordering by rank.

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we
created them.
