Can we please end this now. With 5 in favour and one abstention I am confirmed. Might I remind the Senate that it took six days for me to be confirmed. This shows the slow and unefficient nature of the Senate.

Not my fault: I only got me home internet connection back late yesterday.

Not saying it was since that was an understandable problem but what about the other Senators? It took 6 days for just 6 Senators to vote. That is a little discouraging.

Part of the problem may have been that the confirmation vote wasn't listed on the Status thread; As a note to Harry, I think that he should do this in future, it was certainly my custom

6 days for 6 votes.... Man! Best of luck in your new job, Colin. Still, there should be a conformation vote thread to help out the Senators who may not have noticed that questioning was over, or that the vote had started.

That's actually not a bad idea.

Or another idea would be to give Gabu (or whoever's PPT at the time) the chance to sticky bills and confirmations which are presently up for vote along with Harry's summary of things.

With six votes in favor to none against, and with one abstention, I hereby declare Colin Wixted to be confirmed as Secretary of Defense.

That's actually not a bad idea.

Or another idea would be to give Gabu (or whoever's PPT at the time) the chance to sticky bills and confirmations which are presently up for vote along with Harry's summary of things.

I send senators a reminder to vote when voting is taking way too long; I was actually about to do that for this one.
