Go for it Columbus.  I'm more than happy to sit back and enjoy refreshments (beer) while you work hard.

Hey Dave,

If you want Columbus to really have a chance, you should consider having Luis switch out for me.  Should we review his track record?  :)

At that time, I didn't know how to spell Altiris.  I believe you were ACP?  cheeky  Don't worry, I know you won't let Columbus down.  Besides, Dave will help carry your weight if he has to.

Is there a user group challenge for the most posts this topic?  I think we'd win that for sure!

I, for one, welcome our computer overlord challengers.  Thier destiny has not been written, but a legend foretold of a team that would rise to become the greatest of all teams.  One team to rule them all :-)

 

Good luck everybody!

I wish all of the warriors from the City of Kansas could be there to obliterate the competition. But, alas, some of us were denied passage to the event of Vision. Ziggy, carry the story, tell them all!

It just won't be the same without you Matt.  We will make you proud.  And on that note....

I guess some smack talk does help team morale, and being the professional compettive person that I am:

<jinx>

I predict that Columbus is not even going to make it to the finals this year. 

</jinx>

I think they should name it the KC Cup.  That has a nice ring to it :-)

I'll let Ziggy explain the hula hoop challenge.  All I have to say is the second place team sucked it up, but the first place team sucked it up faster, giving us a several second head start on the run to the finish line.  Not that we could locate the finish line, causing a last-second YANK! as three or four of us (arms linked) went in the right direction as one or two of us went in the wrong direction.  Despite the injuries, we were proud victors.

It's so mean to make IT people run though.
