  1. Two things:

    1) That is freaking hilarious. Linux commands singing santa clause is coming to town. A true geek song as it was meant to be.

    2) Despite your recent dont-ask-me-about-avanade policy, I wanted to thank you. I was hired last month in the System Engineering practice for West Region and your blog was one of several I referenced when trying to learn about the people side of Avanade. I wanted to say that I can understand, respect, and completely agree with your dont-ask-me-about-my-workplace policy but certainly point out that one of the best resources for the earnest job seeker to get a handle on a new position is web logs of people who work there. The people. The attitudes. The technical aptitude. I start early this month and hopefully at some point our paths will cross.
