Default [Dixonary] Round 3262 ULPIC defs - Vote Now!

I've got a rather miserable total of only 8 defs for ULPIC. Because of my
schedule over the next few days, I'm going ahead with voting anyway, so
your chances of hitting the real def are somewhat better than usual. Please
vote for your two favourites by public reply to this message before the
deadline, which is:

20:00 UTC/GMT on Thursday 30th June
21:00 BST in London
22:00 CET in France and the Netherlands
4:00 PM EDT in New York
1:00 PM PDT in California
08:00 NZST on Friday in New Zealand

New players are welcome - just don't look up the word until after you've
