I finally managed to find my Camera<->PC cable, so I've uploaded the few photo's I took during the MVP Global Summit...

If you haven't already, check out my "report" here...



The sun setting over Puget Sound (?) seen through the skyscrapers of down-town Seattle at the time I dropped off my bags..


Ignoring the NDA... an 'insiders' tip... forget this "Windows Vista" thing - it's all about "Microsoft Coffee". The future is black, the future is Microsoft Coffee. Remember, you heard it here first.


The Seattle Space Needle, built for the 1962 World Fair. Couldn't see much from the top due to bad weather [headshake]


7 of the 10 DirectX MVP's (from 24 in total) that attended the summit. I'll award points to whomever can identify the most MVP's [grin]


One of the many freebies we got during the summit - this one will be taken to any lectures I choose to attend this year [smile]


October 2005 SDK. XInput API. Nice. [wink]

If anyone is interested, I have also found a number of photos on my mobile phone. Curiously they're almost as blurry as my memory of that night [embarrass]. Post here if you want them ...

American beer was much better than I was expecting
Wow you must of had really bad expectations if you think our beer is any good. [smile]

The actual coffee was just regular Starbucks [wink]

I'd heard a lot of people complain about the "national" brand lagers (Budweiser/Miller/Coors...) but I had heard some stuff about these "steam beers" (a system for brewing proper beer that the Victorians used). In Seattle they were called "Micro Brews" - and weren't too bad at all. Still prefer a good traditional English ale though [grin]

Left to right: Niko Suni, Don't know, Don't know, Don't know, Dustin Franklin, Jack Hoxley, Simon O'Connor.

I'm only certain of Niko and Dustin. The others are guesses, because:
1) The picture is HIDEOUSLY small
2) I've never seen a clear picture of you, IIRC. Except on the MVP site, a long time ago.

You managed to get 4 out of 7 correct - good guesses on the 2 you weren't sure on [smile]

I intentionally made it a lot smaller so it didn't take up much space.. You can get access to a higher-res version on the MVP newsgroups if you want it.

Again, partly intentional. 90% of my mugshots are shockingly bad! I've been meaning to change the MVP profile one for ages - just haven't been able to find a better one [oh]

Anyone going for naming more than 4 MPV's?

I want to get one of those controllers, then I can start hacking XInput support into SDL. [grin]
