The Bible tells us that wise King Solomon ordered a baby to be cut in half when two women claimed to be its mother.

M-Net went one better this week by doubling up the prize and declaring two Idols winners after making a hash of the votes.

Solomon correctly guessed the child's real mother would give up her baby rather than see him harmed.

M-Net turned a publicity nightmare into a triumph by awarding first prizes to Jason Hartman and Sasha-Lee Davids after its high-tech vote counting system prematurely gave the title to Davids.

Smart thinking there folks.

Just goes to show that there will always be a place for human ingenuity when computers mess up.
