    Dovella would win in the "most incomprehensible Niner" category, though Jamie would give him a run for his money. Tongue Out

    On TWC9 Dan says that nominees will be getting passes to Mix ... is that true?  That would be awesome!  Tell me it's true.  Expressionless

    P.S.  During one of the live C9 shows at one of the PDCs ... I think '09 I was supposed to get a C9 guy as a prize for answering some quiz questions but never got it.  I still want it.  What's up with that?? Tongue Out

    @Richard.Hein:  Well, if that's the case, then someone else  can have my pass; unless MS are going to fly me out there and pay for hotels?

    On second thought, I think my nomination in the "most helpful" category was entirely deserved.

    @Dr Herbie: Ditto. There's no way I can afford to fly to Vegas.

    @Richard.Hein: I just checked with Laura and she told me that all nominees have been notified, so if you haven't heard back, check your junk mail folder or email us at ch9 at microsoft dot com

    @Dan Yes, I got her message, thanks! I put a request in for the time off ... If that clears I'll definitely be going! Big Smile

    EDIT:  Vacation time approved ... I'm going. XD

    I'm trying to get my flight + accomodations paid for by my employer. If get a really cheap hotel it might actually be the same price as DevDays, so they have no reason not to pay for it. Tongue Out

    Edit: Richard, what are you doing with regards to flight and hotel? Assuming you're based in The Netherlands. I'm just checking expedia and hoping they can drop VAT, but I have no idea.

    I live in Ottawa, Canada, not the Netherlands. Wink  I don't know yet.  I was planning on trying to get a room at Mandalay Bay as that's where the conference is.  Flights are pretty cheap from here to Vegas.

    Hey I just got an email from Laura, saying that they are paying for our flight and hotel!  Awesome!  Big Smile

    @Richard.Hein: I'm slightly stunned.   I think my passport has lapsed!  Going to see if I can get one fast-tracked ...

    Yep, MS has really outdone themselves with this one. Looking forward to seeing all of you in Vegas.

     

    Now I just need to get my visa extended and a new re-entry permit, otherwise they won't let me back in to Japan. Tongue Out
