I am staying in a hotel that has been booked out by a bunch of geeks in downtown Seattle. The interesting thing about it is that with so many wireless users around the network is completely saturated, and I’m not just talking about the wireless – I think that the link to the backbone is flooded as well. Its taking me ages to download my e-mail and RSS feeds.
Its not the hotel’s fault though – they probably aren’t equipped to cope with this kind of load
A little girl goes to his father and asks “Daddy, how was I born?” The father answers: “Well, daughter, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber cafe.. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and said:

I just got into Seattle this afternoon, checked into the hotel and then headed out to the “CodeSlam”. CodeSlam is an event that the GotDotNet team organised to show some MVPs some of the new stuff that they are doing. I can’t tell you anything about it – but its cool!
Not only will GotDotNet suck less, it won’t suck at all!
This is an interesting idea [via Mark Treadwell]. Its an example of something that lots of people have to deal with from a support point of view and how it can be rolled up into a service.
Well said Geoff. I made light of it in a comment on this post on Caroline’s blog, but its really not a good thing.
Bill McCarthy posted a link to this excellent article by Erik Meijer on Monoids and the theory behind some of the XLinq syntax. Great find Bill!
