Yes, as it turns out, it has been exactly three years since I started at Microsoft on a full-time basis. And my dork badge still let me in so I have not been fired just yet.... :-)

Ordinarily, this would mean I should put out 3 lbs of M&Ms in front of my office.

However, since I did not do this the first two years, I am making up for that by putting in the 1 lb. for year one and 2 lbs. for year two as well. With a little extra for interest (well, actually because the bags were 21.30 oz. in the store and I could not make it come out even, but why quibble?).

making it an exact 6 lbs would have been nice - if only there were a way to subdivide 21.3 oz. bags of m&ms into smaller pieces... ;-)

Congrats, Michael!

Yeesh, that guy had his start date exactly 364 days after mine.

Wow, three years, it's been fun. Been a bit more than 4 years since I asked you that fateful question: What's MSLU?

Ah, the virtues of the metric system, I don't understand how you guys can copy with oz, lbs, feet, acres,gallons, pints and so on ...
