Ed, Excellent article! [:D]

When we went to Microsoft in Reading last year they had huge posters everywhere of Mr Brent in his classic ‘finger pointing’ pose. Very funny.

Some of us aren’t important enough to be invited to Microsoft in Reading, UK! [:p][:D]

If you wanted to exchange projects with me you should have said! I’m sure what you were doing was a heck of a lot more interesting than Project Millstone!!! [:D]
