I’ll trade you…a joke for a book

My name is Charles and this is my blog.

So, I’ve decided to start an official blog on Adobe Blogs.  Since I graduated (and even while in university), I’ve tried to contribute to the community as much as I could, but lately, I’ve been…well…lazy.  This blog is my attempt at getting back at it, for better or for worse : P

I thought, what should my first (really second) post be about?  I figured it should be something engaging, like asking people to guess approximately how many lines of code there are in CS5 (which we just recently released), or asking people to submit some ActionScript code to do something like sort a list of 10,000 numbers, most efficient gets a prize.  But, I thought that these are kinda cliché and kinda boring…let’s do something fun.

How about this:

Add a comment to this post with your favorite tech joke.  On June 4th, 2010 (two weeks from today), myself and an impartial jury (i.e. my team-mates) will choose the best ones, and I’ll send you a book!

Happy commenting!

*Important: Make sure you put a valid e-mail address so that I can contact you if you’re a winner!

*Update: There were only 7 entries, so you ALL get a book : )  For anyone reading this post after today, feel free to add more…these are GREAT!
