A tale of loss from TechEd 2003


Last year, TechEd was held in Brisbane, at the Convention Center.


Seller's item photo


I have tradionally worn a lovely LOUD Mambo Hawaiian shirt, which was yellow with red roses, similar to the one that is for sale on Ebay. This shirt is no longer available and it is considered a collector’s item –  as are all the LOUD mambo shirts


Well, at last year’s TechEd party (held at Family nightclub), one of the attendees asked me if he could wear my shirt. Foolishly I let him wear it. Next thing I know this dude has run away and I am missing a shirt. I have no idea who he was, and I haven’t seen him since.


So, if anyone sees someone at TechEd 2004 with *MY* Mambo shirt – grab him and please let me know. I want my shirt back!

    Boy……after Steve Ballmer’s "Developers! Developers! Developers!" rant, I hadn’t realized that evangelists had understood it to mean "We’ll even give you the shirt off our backs!"

    Since it occurred at a company-sponsored event, can’t you expense it?

    You should just stock up on them, since you’ve got this nasty habit of being so GIVING…

    Seriously though, cool shirt! (Too bad Mambo has had a mid-life crisis and redesigned their benchmark logos…)

    Good luck for getting your shirt back. You can have ‘wanted’ signs up there.
