USAC humor?

I think this is the first time I've actually laughed because of the USAC home page. Certainly some announcements in the past have elicited a sardonic snort, but this is the first time I can recall having an honest-to-goodness laugh.

They've got a banner on the page with a countdown to the close of the filing window. Maybe they've had this in previous years, and it's certainly a great practical idea. What cracked me up today is that the countdown includes seconds. Somehow, that level of specificity just struck my funny bone this morning.

So kudos to whoever put the countdown on the page. Very useful, with just a little bit of whimsy thrown in. There just isn't enough whimsy in the world.
