Bid early and often on these items!
This thing’s been sitting in my office ever since I had it made. It’s better off actually being used by someone who wears hats than collecting dust in my office.
It’s time again for the annual Borland Online Picnic, and You’re Invited!
Every year Borland hosts a picnic and fun fest for Borlanders, TeamB, and our online community. This is the first year that the picnic will be held in conjunction with the Borland Conference so we hope to have a large turnout. The picnic will be held on Saturday September 18th, 2004 from 11am-3pm at De Laveaga Park in Santa Cruz, California. We will provide food and drinks. Space to play Frisbee, softball and other outdoor games will be available. Parking is metered but there are quite a number of free spots in the area.
Everyone is welcome. If you would like to attend please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org *no later than* September 10th. Be certain to use a subject line "Online Picnic" and the total number (including yourself) of adults and children attending.

Little less than 6 hours left of this incredibly suspenseful thriller. Come watch the ACTION!
Pass the popcorn, please!
There are currently 4 bids, which means that 4 passes will sell, and the 5th one could be yours!
Bid now before you forget!
Update: There are 12 people watching this auction right now! It was 8 last night and 4 yesterday morning.
"Watching" means that they have it on their watch list, and will get reminders (I think) as the auction is about to expire. In order to avoid being sniped by one of these people, you need to put in your bid now, and as you may know, you only get an "out bid" email once you get sniped, and that might be too late.
"We’re delighted to be a part of Ecma International — to play a more active role in furthering the evolution of the .NET platform and strengthening our support for C# development," said Patrick Kerpan, chief technology officer at Borland. "Because Borland is a platform-neutral vendor, we’re in an ideal position to lend objective insight into the formation of standards. This is just the latest example of our continuing commitment to helping ensure that these standards meet the needs of developers."
"I am very pleased that Borland has joined the Association," said Jan van den Beld, secretary general of Ecma International. "Getting broadly applied, high-quality standards require active participation of stakeholders in a technology — i.e. the .NET platform — and its building blocks. Borland’s critical and constructive support is highly appreciated."
