AFL Round 9 2007 : Results
Another "interesting" round. How could I get my tips SO wrong??
I only picked 3 winners this week.
And the overall season is looking under threat. We're in the bottom part of the ladder now. BUT we're 2 games away from 2nd place.
Next week, we meet the Cats who are now second on the ladder and who we have had a recent "rivalry"

Twitter Continues to Rule My Attention
Part of the reason I haven't been blogging here is Twitter.
My twitter stats tonight
Pretty cool. I've done more twitters than posts on this blog.
That says it all for me
4 Years On
Almost 1500 posts. Countless comments. It's been fun.
However I'm considering not renewing, since I barely blog here anymore. I have a few weeks to decide

My Sweet 16th : 16 Sweet years at Microsoft
Today is the anniversary of when I started my career at Microsoft - 16 years!
Here's some ways to represent 16 (thanks to Wikipedia)
As I say each year, I've been really lucky, as I have done lots of different things, been exposed to different parts of the business, and seen it from different parts of the world. I have been very fortunate to work with some amazing people within Microsoft, as well as some outstanding organisations & people outside of Microsoft.
Let's look back again, at what I've done
Now I have a large team of evangelists, which includes some experienced folks, as well as some new guys who are getting up to speed very nicely. I find a large part of my role these days is explaining what we do to the rest of Microsoft. Seems some folks don't quite understand what it is we do.
The future continues to be bright. I still love the job, I still believe in what we're doing, and I continue to get inspired by the impact we have. Just look at the buzz from the Popfly news - that just rocks!
Time to go make some mashups and celebrate

AFL Round 8 2007 : Results
Not a good round for the Saints. The played the worst game I have seen in years.
Plus, I made a bet with Molly and I lost. I will be singing the Hawthorn theme song for his next podcast.
My tipping suffered, but even if the Saints had won, I wouldn't have scored a perfect round - bloody bulldogs. And to cap it all off, all the home teams won!! That's what I used last week for my tipping! FFS
The news about the game isn't good, but then again, the game wasn't good either. The crowd was booing during the game.
The ladder situation isn't pretty either - the Saints are in the same position as they were this time last year

AFL Round 7 2007 : Results.
I tipped all the home teams and it almost paid off for me with 7 winners.
Even better, the Saints got up and won a tough game against the Swans.
Just out of the eight due to percentage

AFL Round 6 2007 : Results
Another big round of games. A few surprising results. I picked 5 winners, which is better than last week BUT I am still coming last in my tipping comp.
On the plus side, the Saints opened the round with a win and the continued their winning streak against the blues - nine in a row! I remember in the 80's when we would always get flogged by the blues, so this is sweet.
