That makes me sad. I wrote software that can easily count 1,000,000 IRV  

According to

the biggest race had 32144 votes.

Between this story and all of the snafu going on with the DRE voting  
machines, my appraisal of the quality of software engineering in this  
country is going down. Even Microsoft could do better.
