Tams should just retire gracefully and resign himself to the superior Mulley talent.

You can't retire with a moustache like that, Keith. It's illegal.

Helen Mulley's Waste Of Angels is a beautiful song,
as I didn't use my second vote, can I use it as a decider?   For Helen, of course Smiley


A deserving winner I reckon Smiley

Dearie me... give people a little extra and they moan about it  Grin

I guess that's called 'rounding' - I think we can live with it - I know some may find it hard but I have some crampons for anyone who needs a hand to get over it  Grin Grin Grin

The actual calculations are done in binary, each number has to be converted to a floating point binary number, calculated, and then converted back to denary.

The board would have calculated the numbers as 21.25% and 3.75% which, with the other scores, would give 100%. However to display these numbers to 1 decimal place both values are rounded up.

It happens on a couple of the other results too.

As the fug of a Guiness-inspired hangover slowly clears, I can confirm that the award-winning hmulley is now happily in possession of a Hancock and is, even now, transporting it safely back over the border to Posh North Essex. Former employee of the month Mic gave a brief but very moving speech paying tribute to The Boardsters, Ces and La Mulley herself before handing over the award and retreating gratefully (and gracefully) to the floor, better to enjoy the subsequent performance of the song . I believe young Farnish has some pictures and JamesSftBH has some more which will no doubt make it along shortly and if they pick the right shots could go some way to reigniting the folk-rock sex symbol debate if nothing else.....

The Hancock Award for Best Original Song is now safely with it's rightful owner Smiley

It was an honour and a privilege to be the one to present Helen with her award; what did I say? well I'll do my best, but bear in mind I don't posess a memory and I didn't write anything down Roll Eyes

I know I wanted to convey why these awards are so special, so I said that Talkawhile is much more than just a message board, that it's a community.... an extended family.... and that, as one of the earliest members, Carey had been a big part of making the board as unique as it is. I tried to get across Carey's love of music and his passion for life and the board. I told them that when Carey passed away it had left a large Carey shaped hole here, and that we wanted a lasting and continuing tribute to him, hence The Hancocks.
I also said that Carey would have been especially thrilled that the award for Best Original Song was going to Helen as he had been a big fan of SftBH.

The buzz afterwards confirmed what we all already knew.... these awards are the most beautiful awards going... and in my opinion, knock tin statues into a cocked hat!!!

Hope that was okay.
