      Wait wait wait. So did they actually get tattoos or was it fake? I only ask because everyone got credited (including the tattoo artist) and because of the way the video was made.

      Even if not, that was a very nice looking tattoo.

      I actually expensed it to the Marketing guy's cost center. If they change the logo BEFORE we ship Vista I'll just expense the touch up as well. Tongue Out

      What do you mean "if"?

      It's real, I had it done about 4 weeks ago during a slow Monday afternoon.  The tattoo was done at http://slavetotheneedle.com.  I'm glad you like it but then again you have to say that.  Rule #1 You never tell someone their tattoo looks bad, it's like calling their baby ugly.

      I see alot of painful laser treatments in your future.


      Perhaps that's why you don't have a tattoo? Tongue Out

      Was the bad (I need to watch my language) music intentional?  Or am I just being biased?

      Whether Vista is successful or not isn't the point. The point is that he was part of the team and it's a reminder of the job he's done and probably spent huge amount of time on.

      Why not just hire someone (main requirements: no pre-existing tattoos and you must sign The Waiver) as a product evangelist whose only purpose is to get tattoos of MS product logos whenever they update?  Pay them ~40k a year to just get tattoo'ed and allocate $300-ish per tattoo x 10/year.

      Why the tatoo is only black, I'd like to see more colorized tatoo, whatever, you are very brave, it hurts, huh?

      Do you conform to the Windows Logo Requirements?

      I think the black people are same to us, some are kind and smart, but also there another are evil or dumb. I have watched the movie <Hotel Rwanda>, that's terrible, do ask how could I become some people like those beasts!
      If you are a black people, I think you are a little self-contemptuous, if not,  you are  trying to avoid the situation like this in every conversation, that shows there the black people are difference from us from your deep mind.
      Whatever, you are on the right way, and so do I.

      You live dangerously.  It's only a matter of time before an MS corporate lawyer shows up at your doorstep, slaps an injunction on you for trademark infringement, and demands that you have your arm amputated.

      I always thought that Windows NT Logo, was sort of a tribal design, would have made a good tattoo.
