Niner since 2010
aww bummer :sadpanda:
but congrats unt1tled
Once upon an October dreary, while I pondered software theory,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of algorithm lore,
While I coded, keyboard clacking, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, port scanning at my firewall door.
'"Tis some scipt kiddie,' I muttered, 'tapping at my firewall door -
Only this, and nothing more.'
Ah, distinctly I was sober, it was last year in October,
a PDC in Los Angeles faded away in memory lost in the moor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; a new PDC to come - but lo! sorrow
For the next PDC no longer hallow-ed in Los Angeles would it be scored
Now in Redmond would the meeting be shored
Never here for evermore.
And the silken sad uncertain realization that was my burden
No PDC schwag that I would ever get anymore
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
"Hard drives, laptops, tshirts -
Windows Phone 7 and demo free sh*t -
I will never win, and nothing more"
Presently my soul grew stronger, I could not be silent longer,
I must get myself to Redmond, to this autumn galore;
But I have no sob story, and a traditional tale would bore me,
So some nonstandard contest entry would have to be in store
I whistled for a cab and when it came near,
The license plate said "Fresh" and it had dice in the mirror.
If anything I thought "Yo this cab is rare"
But nah forget it "Yo holmes to Bel Air!"
PDC 2010 or Bust! Pick me!
What happened to turning off all electronics during takeoff and landing? :P
