    That's cool! Have fun!

    Re: Greetings from the MVP Global Summit

    I was considering cutting me off that picture, but Guido insisted not to change anything.
    We really have fun and I am really happy to meet Guido and Brad in person after so many years of knowing those wonderful guys only from on line contact.
    This was really exciting and I was looking forward to it for a long time.
    I wish CG did some kind of summit for all of us too.

    Form rainy Seattle, Redmond hello to all of you.

    Its good that you didn't cutoff your pic. It does give an idea how may I look like after 20 years (if survived). You know, there is a general concept here (in Pakistan), that there is a certain age, after which you can't do programming specially in C++, because you can't make a balance in life, alot of different technologies coming in, and bla bla bla. Prior to that, I've to prove it hard ways that you can, but now I simply refer them to CG photo Album thread and win the argument

    Post as many pics of yours, as you can

    Well... He hasn't been awarded MVP yet... But maybe SteveB will allow him to come next year and get some autographs from us...

    Well... actually, that's precisely the reason why we are here. I'd love to post a more detailed report right now, but we have a tight schedule. It is currently 5:45 am local time, I just got up and I'm having my first coffee, taking a shower and shaving while writing these lines... John and Brad are staying at hotels in Bellevue (which is more close to the Microsoft campus in Redmond) while I'm at the Westin in downtown Seattle (at the 38th floor BTW with a fantastic view of Seattle and Elliott Bay). Shuttle buses will start running at 6:30, breakfast begins at 7:00 at the Microsoft Conference Center, and the first sessions with the guys like Herb Sutter, Don Box, Anders Hejlsberg and the other folks who architected Visual Studio, the C++ compiler, C# and so on will start at 8:30. Yesterday, we listened to keynotes by Steve Ballmer and Jim Allchin, had sessions with S. Somasegar and Don Box, and had the opportunity to meet the teams that are doing Avalon, Indigo, the CLR, the Visual Studio IDE, the C++ compiler etc. at dinner... Great experience! (BTW, they all wanted to know why you're still using VC++ 6.0! )

    We'll post more detailed reports and pictures when we have more time. See you soon!

    Wow. A lot of most valuable people there, isn't it?

    The guys who architectured the .NET platform and VS.NET want to know why are we still using the 6.0 version? What about the guys who architectured the 6.0 version, don't they reply, "why not, after all it's a great product"?

    You have a water-proof laptop? I want one too.
