Fun Online Polls: Odd-one out round & Xmas cards

The results to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:

Odd-one out round

Tunny - 23%
Tommy Flowers - 23%
Alan Turing - 21%
Ralph Tester - 17%
Bill Tutte - 9%
John Tiltman - 7%

Tunny was correct, as everybody else on the list was a human being who worked at Bletchley Park in the Second World War. Whose name started with "T".

Tunny was their name for a particularly spiteful German code, although that also began with "T".

Votes for Turing on the basis that he was the only one you'd ever heard of don't count.
This week's Fun Online Poll: "How many Xmas cards will you send this year?"
