I wish I still had this pic I did in photoshop of Bill with horns and a tail sitting on a throne of skulls in ₪₪₪₪. It used to be my wallpaper @ work, but my company got a contract to do MS product activation and one of the MS exec from Renton saw it on a visit and freaked out. Almost got fired over that!!!! I met him though when he came to UW with the recruiters when I was going to college. He's really very nice in person and his house on Lake Washington is DA BOMB!!!!

how many times have people using Microsponge Windoze moved the mouse in a circular motion frantically out of frustration when a system hangs???
