Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
I know you're probably sick of reading about how awesome it is here in MN...  tough!

We had snow today. Not a lot, and none of it stuck, but it was definitely snow. Awesome. As a point of reference, it was 76 degrees today in Greenville. No snow there.

Moving to the home office was the smartest thing I ever did. Not only is there enough work here in town that I'll practically never have to travel (unless I want to) but it gives me the opportunity to do all the fun, awesome community stuff I love to do.  Stuff like Code Camps, Developer Roundtables, User Groups, Day Of... x, etc...  You just can't do these things (as easily) when you travel...  too many other demands on your time when you're only home a couple days a week.

I'm also really stoked about some upcoming events that are still being developed. The first meeting of my XNA User Group is tomorrow night, and features the ZMan. Hanging with Andy is always a lot of fun.  We're going to be hitting Claddagh Irish Pub tonight after I pick him up at the airport, so if you're in the area... feel free to stop by. We'll be getting there around 9:30pm.

This is also the period before my MVP renewal in January, so I have to wrack my brain and think of what stuff I did over the last year and whether it was enough...  I really enjoy my MVP status, for a number of reasons, but especially the opportunity to interact with the VB.NET Product Team (and of course the MSDN Subscription.)  I won't actually know until everybody knows.  Here's hoping for a 3rd year.

Tried to make it out to the pub to meet you guys, however google maps failed me (or I was just not smart enough to look at what printed)

See you guys tonight
