I laughed my ASS off over this one.
DPF has found out that our Land Transport Safety Authority (LTSA) has decided the best way to prevent drink driving is by sponsoring a racehorse and calling it Dontdrinkanddrive.
He notes some other future names: “Dontscrewwithoutrubba, Gamblingisstupid, Saveforoldage, donotbeatyourpregnantwife, drugsaredumb and sexisfunbutdonotcatchaids”
Anyone else got any?
Casey, Bill, Tim H?

An Emissary to the Amazon Fiefdom
Pat Helland, one of the smartest and all around nicest guys @ MS is moving on to Amazon. Means we probably won't see him @ a Tech Ed again :-( I think that his Fiefdom keynote was one of the best I've ever seen @ Tech Ed.
Good luck Pat!

I have a sore bum this morning- did 110km on my MTB on the weekend- raced in the Rail Trail Duathlon.
We shaved a few minutes off our last year time... I had a puncture about 10km into the second day bike leg which kindaq stuff everything up a bit.
Feel a whole heap better than I did after the event last year though. Heading up signal hill with Garry the the Mad Scott and Toby (Dogblog Dog) for some downhill action after work.

A while a go, the mad Oregonean (sp.) that is Rory Blythe posted about flair. I was coding this morning and had a flair kinda moment.... so I thought I'd blog it. My flair is a bit different to what Rory sees- it's more like freestyle coding and computer use.
So we play loud music in our office- this morning it was Hybrid, Y4K. So I'm like bouncing on my swiss ball and navigating my way around VS.NET like a demon and I suddenly get the urge to throw some flair into the mix.... It's like... flair is to developing as tweaks or grabs are to snowboarding or kitesurfing... it's as though you've got such a rythym building with the music that you can just throw down some flair moves to help keep you in the groove...
Anyway that is all.... New category too BTW...
