    So on my travels I ended up in the c9 building today without realising it.

    And there's a flipping huge C9 guy in the reception. And in Jeff's office (I ended up in a meeting in the next room; no sign of Jeff).

    Bizarre.

    Dang Blowdart!! I wish I would have known you were here and I would have grabbed a drink with you! Hm, next to Jeff's office, huh? Was this Neil or the office on the other side (Neil's my boss's boss). You on campus tomorrow (Friday)?

    The video Sampy and I did (like Halo 3, but with Nine Guys) was in Jeff's office and ends on a shot of the big C9 guy in his office.

    Seeing MSDN in the morning, then just emailed Charles with a time I can wander over.

    And yes, with Neil Smiley

    Interesting idea but Barry's already indicated on separate threads that he's over there to talk to the CardSpace team.

    Hah; heck I know I couldn't do that job; I enjoy talking way too much; shutting up and letting other people speak? Naw.

    Some random Channel 9 guy ....



    Blowdart: I took this one on my trip over in July (the one where Charles gave me the 9guys that you through out at Reading at SQLBits (Hmmm, was it SQLBits or WebDD?).

    I reckon the guy on the left is the true ¬®Random Channel 9 guy¬® - anyone know who that is?

    Ok so it looked inflatable; it's solid.







    And we did the walk of software. The small set is on flickr.

    Yup, there's the huge living room chair I talked about in the other thread about my new work environment. Dang though, I need to lose some serious weight. I know they say "the camera adds 10 lbs" but in that case I must have like 20 cameras on me Tongue Out. Oh well, now that I've started working out, hopefully this won't be the case 6-12 months from now.

    And now you all know that yes, I do wear the hat in real life. My avatar doesn't lie Tongue Out.
