Hacker of Iron, MacHack 2002

This is a copy of this year's ballot. Voting happens during lunch on the same day as the Hack Show, and results get announced at that evening's banquet.

We had sixty-five hacks entered in this year's MacHax(tm) Best Hack Contest, an early-morning five hour show!

Once again, we'd like to thank everyone who entered for the fun, excitement, and hacks!

This year's theme ingredient was DogCow!

BUY this year's CD!
