[Dixonary] Round 3268 HARMAN Defs - Vote Now!
 
Here we have 10 defs of the word HARMAN, only one of which comes from my
dictionary. There are some great inventions here - I hope I've managed to
get the text decorations as you wished them. Please vote for your two
favourites by public reply to this message before the deadline, which is:

09:00 UTC/GMT on Saturday 23rd July
10:00 BST in London
11:00 CET in France and the Netherlands
5:00 AM EDT in New York
2:00 AM PDT in California
21:00 NZST in New Zealand


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