Hanselminutes spotted in the wild

This was just too cool not to mention, so forgive me this indulgence. I was over at Moe's Restaurant for lunch a few days ago and this fine gentleman said "Hi Scott" and was, at that moment, listening to Hanselminutes. Amazing coincidence!


How cool is that? Are you listening? I think I'll start giving out prizes if this happens again! I should have bought him lunch.

The first time this happened it was in the Chicago Airport bathroom. That was slightly considerably more disturbing, as I was "in the process" at the time. Anyway, so cool that folks enjoy the show.

Keep sending me show ideas!

Hi Scott

You don't want to start a competition with Carl and Richard over at .NET Rocks, about 'where did you listen to Hanselminutes/.NET Rocks. I think it was show 271 where Richard read an e-mail with another description of listening to .NET Rocks "in the process".

That time in the Chicago Airport bathroom, was it a US Senator claiming to be a Hanselminutes listener? If so, I think we've got a story here...

When you say "in the process", we're not talking Larry Craig here are we?

What signal should we use to let you know we're listening to Hanselminutes? Should we wave our mp3 player a few times under the stall partition? Tap our toes a few times?

you should make sure that every process you run is async so it doesn't bother you ;)

What is his name?

Moe's is good. But in MN, they have Chipotle and it was much better, in my opinion.

"in the process" sounds like he was dropping the kids off at the pool.

If I'm listening to Hanselminutes with Zune instead of iPod, will the prize be better? hehe I'm in the process of deciding which MP3 player to go for...

That's funny. What MP3 player is that you're holding there? Is that the Creative Zen?

I know him, but his name escapes me, and I'm going to regret it. Hopefully he'll show up here and remind me. *gulp*

Ya, it was his Zen I believe.

You're a regular celebrity. Maybe you should start thinking about an entourage.

Hey Scott!

You'll be surprised how wide your audience spans... I am Nigerian, in Lagos, Nigeria and I listen to DotNetRocks and HanselMinutes in my car when I commute to/from work or around in the crazy traffic in Lagos.

I use a Zune too ;-)

Keep up the good work!
