Mono and Linux is IT

I fanatically believe that Mono/Linux is it!

Today, I replied to a message on the [Mono-lit] that showed two important things:

  • Developers from a Windows culture have great expectations.

  • We (all of us who in a way or another benefits from the community effort), do not do enough to thank the volunteers that make all of these great advances possible.

They get you at the Drive Thru

Well, its official, the new DV camera I brought with me to film the Mono event was stolen from my bags somewhere between DFW and Logan airport. I want it to take the bag with me on the plane, but NOOOOOO!
The lady said: "Sir, that bag is too big you have to check it in".

I replied: "But, it is not too big, Targus sold it to me with a sticker that says carry on friendly. Here I will show you" -- as I frantically and fruitlessly pushed it into the metal frame template they have to test for size.

It's like Joe Pesci said in Lethal Weapon 2 -- they Get you at the drive through.
NOTE: In the movie, Joe's character Leo Getz, spells "Get" with an FU on it.

So, I am checking my email from a hotel in Cambridge, and got an update form my co-worker Dan Garvin. It had to pieces of information:

  • The reorganization took place already and Paco is still by HEALTHvision.
  • The Quovadx training is not going to be which, lets me attend the "In Depth .NET Framework" training session that starts the day after I get back from Boston.
