Rolly polly!

It's time again to roll the poll, with our "Whaddaya call 'em? Slocket versus Slotket" poll coming down to a photo finish for second place. Well out in first place is the more elegant option, "Slocket", with 51% of the vote. Slocket beat up on the other viable option, "Slotket", which had to contend with the upstart, dark horse entry, "Herb." Herb fell behind for a while there, but came charging back to—amazingly—tie with Slotket. Each received a Gore-esque 24% of the vote.

It wasn't one of the choices in voting, but Rapean's suggestion that the socket-to-slot converters oughta be called "JUMPEE boards" deserves a mention. As he put it, "Not a good technical name but easy to say and remember."

For my next trick, I'm taking a request from this thread in the Forums for our next poll. Folks wanted to know how many readers had taken the Athlon plunge, so here's the question:

My main PC's processor is:
Pentium/Pentium MMX
Pentium Pro/Pentium II
Pentium III

As always, you can reply to the poll just like any other Forum thread, so you Cyrix and PowerPC owners can voice your opinions, as well. All three of you.
