This so makes me never want to be a Microsoft partner again…

This fantastic quote arrived in my MS Technet newsletter just a moment ago (emphasis mine):

Hi all,

What can I say but WOW! The UK launch of Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 took place last week and it was incredible to see 3,000 IT professionals and developers in one place. I have to say I think my favourite part of the day was the fantastic community area that included Swagily Fortunes and Who Wants to be a Swagillionaire! The other highlight was the attendee who got a little too comfortable on the bean bags whilst watching one of the streamed sessions, as I am sure I heard him snoring.

Mmmm, try explaining your attendance at this “business-focused event” to your boss after he reads that 😉
