I can't imagine that there is any better way to vent your frustration than by squeezing a hand-sized, person-shaped stress toy - except perhaps the age-old calling someone up and hanging up right after they pick up, although these days you have to remember to dial *67 to block caller ID first, which takes some of the fun out of it, but does add an element of risk... "Did I dial *67 this time or didn't I?" sort of has a Russian roulette feel to it.

Anyways, back to the stress toys.  It turns out that the MSDN Events and Webcasts Team is promoting our upcoming Virtual Labs and Webcasts by giving away limited edition Source Fource Action Figures when you participate in our webcasts and virtual labs to help you get up-to-speed on Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio Team System and ASP.NET 2.0, among other fine developer topics.  Plus, even if you're not into action figures (odds are that you are if you read my blog), you can still enjoy the humorous FAQ.
