blogging Are you in King County/Seattle/Redmond/Bellevue and surrounding areas? Are you a huge nerd? Perhaps a geek? No? Maybe a spaz, dork, dweeb or wonk. Maybe you're in town for an SDR (Software Design Review) or the PNP Summit. Quite possibly you're just a normal person.

Regardless, why not join us for some Mall Food at the Crossroads Bellevue Mall Food Court on November 8th around 6:30pm? You can even help me write my speech that I have to give that Friday. ;)

Here's some links to help you remember and add this to your calendar:

Feel free to RSVP in the comments. If you want to come and share something with the group, please do! We're language and technology agnostic and always eager to learn about new stuff.

I've only been at Microsoft 7 weeks now and it'd be great if more Microsoft people came - everyone loves to put a face to a blog and sometimes Microsoft folks get tunnel vision and don't learn about what's going on in other groups! Blue Badges welcome...Please spread the word!

Hope to see you there. If not, I shall eat my Spicy Chicken alone in peace.

UPDATE: You might also want to check out the Seattle Code Camp this November 17 and 18th. You can register here. For some reason there's a certificate error on their site, looks like a problem with their SSL.  I know the guys who run it, so I wouldn't worry about the error, I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

I'm pretty new to the area too, but I listen to Hanselminutes and would love to meet some interesting people in the area.

I would but im only in town for the SOA/BP conference.... Seattle is lovely though, I should move out here.

See you there.

I remember the shirt. I don't remember the event.
October 29, 2007 17:21
Looking forward to the Spicy Chicken.

I am SO there. That's halfway between my house and work (a 10 min commute). I've seen the posters up around here with your smiling mug on them... ;)
October 29, 2007 20:19
Well, a 2hr drive+border waits just for dinner might be a bit much for sounds like fun :)
October 29, 2007 20:51
I'll be there; did anyone else have problems adding the invite to outlook? I'm still on 2003, and it would not open...

So what do u mean "help write my speech", is ScottGu pushing you too hard already?

If I can convince some of my colleagues to come, we are at the PnP summit, then count us in. And yes, I'm a chicken :-)

I should be able to make it, at least sometime before everyone leaves.
October 30, 2007 4:15
Hey, let's do it again! I may ask Charlie Owen for the Media Center remote he gave me back again. Hulu may ruin me!

Funnier still, the Outlook Reminder for this event won't install:

"Can't import vCalendar file.

"This error can appear if you have attempted to save a recurring Lunar appointment in iCalendar format. To avoid this error, set the appointment option to Gregorian instead of Lunar."

The "More information about this error message online" link brings up this winner, which deserves a prize on Error'd or WTF:

"Product: Office
"ID: 10070
"Source: OfficeErrorMessages
"Version: 11.0
"Message: Links to additional information about the error message you saw are available below.
"Currently there are no Office Assistance articles available for this error message.

Wow, Trick or Treat! This is almost as much fun as the allegations that Kim Cameron's blog site was hacked over the weekend.

Count me in! A foreign (Dutch) blue badge, only 3 weeks in.


October 31, 2007 21:22
Are you going to be back from DevConnections in time for this? (just barely?) Are you dragging Haack along with you to dinner?
November 01, 2007 4:01
RSVP +1.
I'm from (waaaaaay) out of town, but really looking forward to the Spicy Chicken.
cheers, Dugie.
November 01, 2007 16:14
Count me in. Yet another dutchmen to join the fray!
November 01, 2007 19:11
I am in town for a conference and was wondering if I could join as well. I just recently switched over from the open source programming world to the Microsoft programming world, and I am sure putting a face to some of the blogs that have helped me make the conversion would be awesome.
November 02, 2007 8:53
See you there.
November 03, 2007 20:08
I would be if i wasn't having my wisdom teath out that day :-(
November 06, 2007 0:30

I was going to take my guys at QFC to Ruth's Chris for lunch that day, but what the hell... Do they have a Taco Time? Mexi Frys?

Your normal cousin. Jack

Dude, I am so there. I'll even drag 4 other guys with me. I'm here for the PNP Summit this week and can't wait for your keynote(s).
November 08, 2007 21:31
Heh, an email went out to our entire team last night...
November 09, 2007 10:03
Dude, Lutz was there! I saw him! I touched him! He is real.
November 14, 2007 3:28
So bummed I miss this! I think to better get the word around, there should be a nerd dinner sign up. All those that signed up, Scott would pick up personally. Just an idea it would help me remember nerd dinners.
