09/09/09 -- 9ers Day?

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse
  • Dr Herbie

    I think we should designate Sept 9th 2009 to be international 9ers day! Big Smile

    I'm sure the Channel 9 team can think of suitable ways to celebrate --

    • tatoos all round?
    • 9-Guy cake?
    • Competition?
    • C9v5 ?
    Anyone got any more suggestions?

    Give a super administrator account to any Niner that visits at exactly 9:09 AM or PM?

    An idea that's been popping around in my head for a while...

    Would anyone be interested in the Coffeehouse moving to an open source project (initially built by us) that anyone here could contribute to?

    I can't make any promises, but thought I'd throw the idea out there to see if anyone would bite.

    - That would improve Microsoft's image in the open source scene
    - There is a possibility of clones popping up here and there
    - Niners would be able to make far more constructive suggestions to improve the overall forum design and functionality

    How far will the separation of the Coffeehouse from the rest of the board go?

    I agree with the others, that would definitely boost MS's image int he Open Source world. I'd love to see a project like that Smiley

    Still thinking through the idea.  We'd like to add Forums to Oxite and it's open source (and built by us) so the thought came that maybe it would be cool to get Niners involved in the development.

    You know...I can see the headlines now...Niners build Channel 9!  Wink  Again, this is all in my head at the moment now.  Nothing real.  Smiley

    Alright people, let's get this guy over to a full liquor cabinet or something, we need to transform him from the ordinary thinker to a hard core "yes-man"! Stat! Wink

    If *the source* is released, be prepared to work with it like runny modeling clay... We may create a new statue of David, or we may chip away chunks for ourselves to make poorly crafted ash trays... Just a fair warning Smiley

    Thumbs up for turning an ordinary idea into a pre-release trailer Wink

    Well, we're probably not going to release that runs the site currently.  Oxite is already open source, just doesn't have forums yet, but we'll get that in there over time.
