WooHoo! Free falafels!
Falafel has just started a .NET User Group in the Bay Area.
PS: I don’t know about the free falafels, but I’m certainly going to ask about them.
Danny addresses a personal rumor on the newsgroups.
He writes "The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated" and "I have no plans to leave Borland for the forseeable future".
Danny stated the same in his blog earlier this year.
Danny continues in his post to elaborate on how these rumors are bad for our business relationships.
I agree with Danny, if you hear such rumors, *please* ask us to validate or discard them before passing them on. Rumor mongering makes no one happy.
Danny also notes that he will be in Redmond next week on normal Borland business. This is completely normal. People from different companies have to get together to discuss business sometimes. If there was a rumor for every customer I talked to, I’d be drowning in rumors.
Even I have been up at Microsoft myself a couple of times. And I’m still at Borland as well.
Thanks for paying attention. Next time a rumor pops up, please help put it out. Stop the FUD. Stop the rumors.
In Borland years that is. Or 252,288,000 seconds. That sounds a lot more impressive!
Time flies when you’re having fun! Where’s my birthday cake?
Bill Gates just stopped by the Borland booth at VSLive! in San Francisco.
Alison Deane, David Intersimone, Michael Bartzel (talking), Vivek Uniyal, and Bill Gates.
I, of course, was behind the camera. You can buy my camera with the pictures still in it…
Look forward to more coverage live from the show right here…
At the Visual Studio Magazine Readers Choice Awards last night, C#Builder won the category of "Best Development Tool".
