Brian previously mentioned the MSDN Peacock award when it was presented to Duncan.  As the next recipient of the bird, I wanted to show everyone back in Redmond what a lovely time the peacock had during his stay here in lovely NYC.  So I put together a short movie documenting his travels, accompanied by appropriate music, some stills from which are shown below:

Apparently that warrants a nickname ;)
