Quebec Debate and Projection

I'll be brief. Who won? David. Who lost? Legault.

Projection based on my interpretation of the results of the debate:

My feelings in short (more detail in a post in an hour or two)

Charest: As I suspected, nothing he did or would do mattered.
Marois: She really did well, she looked most like a Premier IMO, and has solidified her party's lead.
Legault: Too aggressive, everyone wanted to tear a strip off him, he looked unready.
David: Extremely strong performance. QS may be back on track for more than 2 seats.


Alright, after some testing, I've been able to get the old blog working once more! This post will be somewhat short and include three sections. The first, a self explanatory section that will include these words I am typing right now. The second will be a link to a project I've been slowly working on. The last, my projection for the Quebec Election. I also want to say hello to anyone following from our sister blog at where I've been ranting from time to time.

Next, on to my project. I've been working on this for some months, though slowly. It is a wiki to compliment this blog. I will be putting real-life election data, and, fictional what-if stories here. I will also have it set up so my most recent projections are easily visible. You will also find attached a forum, where I will from time to time run games or interesting thought experiments.

Lastly, my Quebec Projection.

More testing




Another test

Still working out the kinks.

The return of RxR

Hello folks. I've decided to return this old blog to it's former glory! Many of you already know that prior to the 2011 Federal election, I got my own website, and moved everything over there. Many of you also know that following the election I ran into financial difficulties and was unable to pay the bills on the site.

The 2011 Federal election was a mixed bag for me. Of anyone who attempted a riding-by-riding projection, I was closer to the actual results than anyone else. In effect, I "won". Despite that, my daily unique readership never peaked beyond 30 (Except for the few days right around E-Day of course) and that put me into a slump and depression.

I've since come to realize that I don't really care who reads my stuff, so long as my numbers are as correct as I can make them.

Therefore, this blog will be returning to regular activity!



RxR will be returning here.
