    Have a great fun.
    Well, besides not getting MVP award, Bill G. was kidnapped by Napoleon Dynamite. All was shown in a short movie clip. Also he participated in Share our pain new MS program that uses different gadgets to physically punish MS staff for introducing too many bugs; also shown in a short movie clip.
    I am sure that we will not be able to get those movies but we well give it a try.

    [EDIT] Thanks MrBeans

    Forgot to mention:
    I did not wake up as early as Guido not only because I am closer to MS. I did not have shaving on my schedule today.

    WOW, I did not realize that I am looking sooooo old. I am a grandfather but only 52 years young.
    I have seen older MVPs.

    Well, if you take what Ejaz said literally, then 28 (his age) + 20 = 48. So, after Ejaz, your age should be about 48, not 52

    I didn't know that John is 52 and still a tiger You know, it gives me alot more confidence to know that I'm part of the best of the breed and those who says you can't hold on to programming after 30-35 are ignorant. Keep it up John, keep it up

    By the way Guido, can you take few more snaps about your trip (not only in the summit but outside as well) and post them in this thread? Well, this way we all will be able to visit with you guys, virtually though

    Actually, I am wearing mine today. I have a meeting today with the Microsoft people who are working on the project that incorporates CodeGuru articles in VS 2005 and the codezone search. I thought it better to "advertise" CodeGuru today

    All the best for that marketting strategy.

    No matter age.
    With no specific DNA (mutant) segment, no one can be a programmer.
    Just writes code, writes code,...
    Being the oldest in the company, my managers should be happier if I involve myself less in the programming process and pay a little bit more attention for the rest of project's tasks (documents, meetings, audits, etc).
    Unfortunately no way, that's it! I am a mutant.

    Well I think those letters in bold better be corrected soon, Dear John.
    Nice photo indeed, I wish I could give a sixth platinum star to this thread . Keep it up Biggies, I really feel proud to be a member of Codeguru today .

    BTW I would surely like to know what next after .NET. Any discussions on that this year.

    I will as soon as I get my internet connection running again - I just came back home after a 16 hour trip and found that my connection and email account broke for some reason (I'm currently using a GPRS dial-up connection with my cell phone, which is both slow and costly).

    Microsoft payed for the stay (up to four nights in Seattle's top hotels, although only three were required to attend the summit) and for everything like food, beverages and transportation during the entire summit. As for the travel, MVPs from outside the US could also apply for getting part of the flight costs (about 330$ in my case) refunded - that was 60% of the price of my flight from Germany...
