1275 Balloons to celebrate 10 years at Microsoft for Wes

Wes Sandford, one of the Team Foundation QA Managers reached his 10 year Microsoft Anniversary this week.

Here's how his team chose to commemorate the occasion:

The balloons are currently following a pattern of brownian motion around the building, and are clinging to everyone who walks past. The build up of static electricity is probably going to cause some problems later on 🙂

Chris Shaffer, who masterminded the whole operation even went so far as to get some special hardening fluid to coat the inside of the balloons to stop them deflating - so they could be here for weeks to come

    Why exactly 1275 ?

    Apparently 1275 is exactly the number required to pack a Microsoft standard office completely full with balloons – we couldn’t squeeze any more in and still shut the door.

    This is just toooo funny John. Seeing the smile on Wes’s face I’m sure he completely appreciated it.

    Congrats Wes for me…
