Apologies for this being horrifically off-topic, but here's
an (entirely untrue, doubtless) mail I got today which was
moderately funny...

I was in the VIP lounge last week en route to Seattle.
Whilst in the lounge, I noticed Bill Gates sitting on the chesterfield
enjoying a cognac.

I was meeting one of our clients who was also flying to Seattle
with me but she was running a bit late.

Being a mouthy guy, I approached Mr Gates and introduced myself.
I explained to him that I was conducting some very important business and
how I would appreciate it if he could throw a quick "hello Endicott" at me
when I was with the client. He agreed.

Ten minutes later while I was conversing with my client, I felt a tap on
my shoulder. It was Bill Gates. I turned around and looked up at him. He
said "Hi Endicott, what's happening?"

To which I replied "Fuck off Gates, I'm in a meeting"

It was sweet.


For which I now owe a tip...

<TIP TYPE="streaming media" AUTHOR="John Handelaar">
There's an alpha release of a live Quicktime broadcaster
a la Sorenson, but for Win32/Linux, at http://www.static.com.
It doesn't work without a video source, but that's
what alpha means.

(Best I could do off the top of my head)
