I was born in Los Angeles California at a very early age. I have lived all over the US and currently live near Redmond, WA. I started on .NET Passport and .NET Alerts and now work on Web services marketing.
The bottle of brain wash has been around for a long time and I am not sure where it came from originally. I got my bottle from our group admin during an office move - I am not sure where Jamey came by his.
Apparently people used to drink it, but it's looking a little cloudy right now and there is a purple ring around the neck of the bottle so I have no plans to indulge any time soon.
Everything you see on the screen was a ppt deck, by the way. The 'visual studio' was a screen shot Charles sent me. If you notice there is a tool tip on the screen the whole time.
I put the 'april fools' slide up becuase it made it easy to transition into the notice: no code was hurt one that followed...but a screenwriter I am not.
