I was going through some old email looking for one I had from a few years ago and came across one that I had with a person from MS. I was thanking them for the opportunity of meeting with his group. Which made me think back to how that happened. I don’t like standing in front of people and talking and my boss Arlin knows this and uses every chance he gets or tries to anyways of making that happen. I like to think of myself as the person not seen just heard from works better that way for me or as I refer to myself as a mushroom keep in the dark and buried in well never mind.
We was out there for some part of the Longhorn/2008 Beta we was involved in and Arlin setup a meeting with the TS Group. He had me in mushroom mode up until the point he mentioned to come up front with him. Well I got to stand up there in front of the whole TS Devolpers Group with my boss as he presented to them and I got to answer any questions they had. I have never been the same since, marked for life I am thinking. 4 years ago this last week it happened. Until he did the same thing to me again at the SBS 2008 thing in Tx last year I am finally recovering or still in the process of healing from that. I have to watch him more closely I am thinking.
Til later just Roger
