I've been tagged

I've been tagged by Alex Thissen, so let's join the club and share a few things you might not know about me yet:

  1. I'm a 100% non-alcoholics guy, that means no bear, wine or liquor bonbons :-).
  2. My sign is Aquarius, I was born on 11th February 1983 in Zottegem, Belgium. Incidentally, my favorite drink is Aquarius for the moment, after having been addicted to Coke and Red Bull.
  3. Movies don't interest me much, you won't find me in cinemas except for giving presentations from time to time. One exception are movies and series (Blackadder) with Rowan Atkinson, maybe because he's an engineer too (believe it or not).
  4. I'm a huge fan of snooker. Although it's a long time ago I played some snooker myself, I still love to watch it :-).
  5. For the moment, I don't have a driver's license and no (because so many people ask) I don't miss it. I manage to get everywhere I need so I'm fine.

Time for me to tag some others now. Here are my victims:

  • Gunther Beersaerts - one of the first people I learned to know at Microsoft, with a deep focus on SQL Server 2005 stuff and DataDude and not to forget a top speaker.
  • David Boschmans - officially called a "Developer Platform Advisor" for Microsoft Belux, David is the ultimate resource for all sorts of dev topics in the wonderful world of .NET.
  • Peter Himschoot - a colleague community member in Belgium, employed at U2U and president of Visug.
  • Tom Mertens - the one and only responsible for Microsoft's developer audience in Belgium, organizing great events, driving the local MSDN website, and doing much more.
  • Hans Verbeeck - a guy at Microsoft EMEA who isn't afraid of spending long nights in discos after Microsoft events <g>. | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks

This is really freaky, apart from being born on the 17th of January, these exact first 4 items could have come from me!

Maybe it's a virus secretly spreading through the .net framework? ;-)

Only the 5th doesn't apply to me, 'cause I do have a driver's license...

P.S. What did you think of Ronnie O'Sullivan's walkout in his latest quarter final match against Stephen Hendry?  I've always liked watching the rocket play, but now that was truly a big disappointment... Luckily he apologized and said he will be back better than ever :-)

Hi dotnetjunkie,

It might be an interesting academic research topic to find (dis)similarities between .NET freaks :-).

What the rocket is concerned, we haven't seen the last of him I guess. Full of surprises as always, sometimes disappointing, sometimes not. I was watching the match Hendry-O'Sullivan too at that very moment and I share your feeling.
