  • Blog Post: Stuff you find at Microsoft

    I wandered by the Scrum lobby in one of the Microsoft Advanta buildings and saw a new addition. Apparently one of the CRM teams were into Legos and in a big way. Since I don’t remember seeing it the week before, I wonder if the team put it together over the weekend. This Death Star II is massive and...

  • Blog Post: Headed to Building 7 for a meeting with my Mentor

    The mythical building 7 on the main Microsoft campus has been a running joke for years. I first ran into it when I was a contractor in ‘92.

  • Blog Post: Microsoftie Opens Nursery in his Office at Work

    Due to the economic downturn I have been forced to start up a new business in my Microsoft office. The tech industry is certainly not the cash cow it used to be.

  • Blog Post: Close, but no cigar...

    Dear Microsoft, I just inadvertently sent an email to my girlfriend to everyone (as in 426) in my contact list. How do I call them back. Sigh... Dear Inadvertent, that would be the 'time machine' feature that we haven't perfected yet. But we've all been there. Example: Oops! Obama’s press...

    I have a GAS affliction when it comes to saxophones as in Gear Acquisition Syndrome (aka Guilty As Sin). I own almost every saxophone there is from soprillo to bass sax. That includes some rarities like the F mezzo sax. Using all these instruments can be a challenge as for many such as the soprillo ...

  • Blog Post: More Microsoft Stories

    When something breaks at Microsoft, the employees have been known to be both vocal and ‘helpful’ in providing guidance to the maintenance crew. Last week the coffee maker on the 3rd floor of Advanta broke and the ‘guidance’ started appearing. First one observer thought the water source had been turned...
  • Blog Post: April Fools on the Microsoft Campus

    This is just a part of the Microsoft Web site for employees. In the past they’ve provided such things as pages turned sideways and topics always with a touch of self deprecation like these below: The first item in the picture above had me going, “What the…” But just for a second.  :o)

  • Blog Post: THE LAWS OF ULTIMATE REALITY

    In my experience these following laws are immutable: Law of Mechanical Repair After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

    Okay, so I wasn't too impressed with a comic as a marketing vehicle, but there are some nice things happening here and the artwork is first class. This is a couple of panels from the Heroes Happen Here comic series. Enjoy.
  • Blog Post: April Fool's Day Atrocities :o)

    Sigh, it's just after 7 AM and I run into this: http://mail.google.com/mail/help/customtime/index.html I luv the testimonials, but the "convincing" equation is fun too: How come I only get ten?

  • Blog Post: Tap, tap, tap...

    Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery, they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel...
