On Friday I got an amazon parcel, it turned out to be “the Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook” and was sent by Andrew Magerman , its appearance has quite made my week!!, my first gift from a friend i have made from the lotus community and related to a blog post Tooo!, awesome!
after some though this turns out to be not quite true:
- There was the Lotusphere tickets from Elguji software (Bruce and Gale , Matt ).
- Thank you presents from speaking at various LUGs (Warren and Kitty , Paul Mooney).
- Being involved in great new projects (Mark Barton , Keith Brooks).
- The Hangovers (Bill Buchan , Steve McDonagh, and various lotus people i can only just remember).
- Constant assistance mixed with abuse from LDC (Ben Poole,Julian Woodward etc al).
- and never ending help for my gross stupidity from various member of the community at large.
I spend time with various members of different tech community’s (Java,flex,NoSQL), but the Lotus one is the friendliest and the best and i don’t care who knows it.*
*now that I have purged the niceness from my soul i can go back to being an arse and picking on Ben Poole
That’s what friends are for.
