.NET saves Boy!

4th October 2002

.NET Saves Boy Down Well (via Sam Ruby):

“Once the thing was installed, well, hell, it pretty-much ran itself. I guess that’s why they call it ’no-touch’ deployment. We just fired that baby up and wizz-bang-a-doodle, it had that boy out of the well in a matter of minutes. Plus, it balanced the department’s books, got us some apple fritters and impregnated our receptionist, Mary-Lou. This .NET Framework the cat’s meow. Course, we’re still not exactly sure what it is. Nobody at Microsoft could tell us, either.”
