I'm interested to hear people's opinions on what is the preferred TV channel, Internet sites etc for the election day coverage.

I'll be listening to the Triple J "indecision" (with the sporting HG & Roy), whilst watching the normally staid ABC TV coverage (to see how many of The Chaser blokes get chased off the sets!) :P

I'll be watching a movie, episodes of the Simpsons or GITS Stand-Alone Complex or playing Mario Golf on the Nintendo 64!!!

Anything but sit through an election coverage. ;)

^^^ Cool! I've always wanted an N64 (but have declined thus far from buying one as I found my retro collection of C64, PS1, Megadrive, Master System, Amiga 500, Amiga 600, Amiga 1200, Amiga CD32, Megadrive CDX, etc... very playable! [do you think I have enough? ;) ])

Certainly, one of my favourite ways to relax is by playing computer games.

I currently have Rome Total War installed on my PC (which eats up a lot of leasure time!)... I had to uninstall it earlier on this year when I found myself spending more time playing it than spending on my Summer online University unit! :eek:

Hopefully I can be a little more self disciplined this year! :D

I'll be on Sky. Both ABC and Nine are very good.

I don't know who has got Hawke and Keating commentating. Both are better than the average fare available from any side of politics. The two clowns on Sky this very moment - one from either side - are absolutely hopeless, both pushing their respective party's barrows. They need a slap.

Oddly, I find Hawke a very good commentator. My views on his ability as PM are well-known.

Yes, it's hard to know who they convince when they act like that... pathetic.

I like the straight talkers with a good turn of phrase. We won't have much control over the coverage as we're going to a friend's house. Hopefully a mix of ABC and 9. I love election night although the last few have been a bit deflating I must confess. We were on a plane for the last one.

Very strange, given the reflexive anti-Americanism of many in that party, that they would adopt the American spelling. Same with the Skeptics.
