    OMG - Could this be my shirt ?????


    I've been religiously scanning Ebay, looking for a replacement shirt of the one I lost a Tech.Ed 2 years ago.

    Today I stumbled across the following auction : MAMBO Loud Shirt Wild Roses X-LARGE Looks Stunning

    Hmm, whats this ......  Item location: Queensland



    Maybe the guy who took the shirt off my back is feeling generous and is going to sell it back to me??? Maybe the gods are smiling on me?

    The auction ends in 9 days. Just in time for Tech.Ed on the Gold Coast 

    Wish me luck.

    My first reader submitted ASP.NET Site Of The Day (Thanks William), and I'm kicking myself for not noticing this in the past, as I have met with these guys in the past and know they are big users of MS Technologies.
