Yet again your votes showed the consistency of previous years with almost every eligible article or program receiving votes. Again the same type of articles appeared near the top of the poll indicating, hopefully, that we are continuing on the right track.

As you may know, if you are a long term reader, the basis was changed a little this year so that awards were given for the Best Article, Best Program and Best Miscellaneous. Remarkably the three programs that received the most votes overall came from each of the categories. So here, for those who can't wait any longer, is the result of the Readers Poll for 1986.

Best Article(s):



by Mark Hutchinson


Best Program:




by Paul Lay


Best Miscellaneous:




by Jim Short
