    Are any of the three members at OCDO? I would be curious as to what they are going to discuss about the principles and practice of OC.

    Microsoft has a gun club?? :shock:

    Firearms aren't allowed on MS property, last I heard. Occasionally I have to visit their campus for work. I think I may need to swing by this shindig.


    ETA: I'll be danged; they got their own website and everything: http://gcmsweb.org/

    Microsoft does not have a gun club. We are a gun club at Microsoft, which apparently makes a huge legal difference (MSGC got shut down years before I came to MS). "Weapons" are forbidden on MS property according to our handbook, this includes locked in vehicles.

    I try to budget for at least 3 weapons for every Macbook I buy. My ratio is 6:2 so far this year:P

    So, would you rather have a gun made by Microsoft or Apple?

    I used to be a vendor at MS. I worked in the data centers. My rather conservative views weren't welcome there, I think. :celebrate I had forgotten all about their gun club or their website. LOL

    Trouble with Microsoft guns is that they jam in the middle of a firing sequence, you have have to disassemble the gun to repair, and it won't reload

    Yeah, but it's a lot easier to find someone who can fix an MS gun, and any bullet will work in it. :celebrate

    Since I'll be presenting, I'm pretty sure whatever coverage you want can be provided
