The replacement TechEd bag just arrived...

A very suspiciously-shaped package from a random distribution-warehouse-sounding address just arrived - what's inside?  Well, none other than a Replacement Backpack from TechEd U.S.  You might rememember that at TechEd by the end of the week many folk's bag's inner linings had ripped and at the end of the week there was an announcement that the bags would be replaced.  I still use my bag (I just hang on to a bag until the next conference, then I use that bag...wonder what we're getting at PDC?) and it's ripped all over.  At a recent garage sale I sold about a dozen bags for about $5 each, some going as far back as a SiteBuilders conference in the mid-90's...re-selling conference bags to the general public could become a lucrative side business for me.  I should probably read the bag's EULA, though. ;)

Anyway, I'm not sure what critical structural reinforcement or steel beams have been added to this new bag; it looks just about the same to me.  Either way, kudos for MSFT for making good on their promise.
