Hey all, Ned here again. Still no ETA on Win8 word, and we've already discussed everything else on Earth ( ;p ) so now I will share with you some insider knowledge of working in Microsoft Charlotte: the quarterly "PC Recycle Day". Here's an example of what I just saw on my way to get some coffee.



A couple of these are fairly hard to identify unless you are as old as Jonathan . Take a stab at them in the Comments, if you dare to date yourself. If you've used them all, give yourself a pat on the back - you are really close to retirement.


Update : Woo, a particularly crusty late arrival from the Networking team! They may upset the perennial Setup team favorites here and win it all this year, folks.



Update 2: a funeral pyre for once-dominant protocols




Have a nice weekend,



- Ned "spring chicken" Pyle
