    Someone that puts 30 years of their lives into a company should be listened to. Much respect.

    Congratulations Larry! You rock! :-)

    PS: Isn't it boring to sit in such a small office by yourself the whole day? It's good for concentrating, but a break and a chat with a colleague is nice.
    Do you have a lot of contact with you colleagues, except over chat then?

    @vjabran: Most of the T-shirt I wear are either from the Microsoft Company store on the Redmond campus (not to be confused with the Microsoft Stores in malls), or are internal T-shirts from product launches, etc.. Looks like you need to visit HQ. :)
