I went to a Microsoft presentation once and got a T-shirt: they weren't giving away Office Professional or anything of great value. But the T-shirt was all cotton (no polyester!!!) and lasted for years.

I have one of those Microsoft shirts. They were giving them away at a presentation promoting the (then) new "Active Server Page" technology for dynamic Web page generation*. I literally owe my career to that presentation and yes, the shirt is still in pretty good shape too.

FYI If anybody still running XP, support for it dies April 16th. That means no more downloads, reloads or updates.
I'm gonna copy all the service packs onto a drive for later use so I can keep my Dell D620 going for a while longer!

Glad to be back!! Anybody miss me?

Those cat naps aren't all they are cracked up to be.
No, it wasn't a cat nap. It was my sleep. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, I work. By Sunday morning, I'm pretty sure I resemble an extra from "The Walking Dead". I usually come home, fall into bed & do an amazing rock impression. At least for 6 hours. Today, I couldn't get to sleep right after getting home. Then I slept for maybe 4 hours. And now, I'm just exhausted.

No head, some evidence of sugar clinging to sides of the glass. Sorry to be judgmental, but that is pitiful. Right with the K
OK.

So I redid the shot with a proper camera, and took the picture soon after the pour.
