RE: Going to work for Microsoft

You know you're good when your April Fool's joke gets picked up by a major news site.

With a fair bit of attention being given to using older Web technologies to create new Net applications, Microsoft is apparently looking to make sure it is staying up to date. The company has hired Java specialist Matt Raible to help make sure that Ajax is in Visual Studio's cupboard of tools.

Hahhaha.. that's so funny. I bet they feel like a bunch of donkeys. That was a real good one Matt. For a second I thought you were serious and I was about to find a new role model ;-) I'm j/k, working for MS can't be that bad. Plus if they do manage to acquire great talent like yourself, maybe their software will actually improve.

I just figured the guy who wrote the news story was in on the joke.

Sorry, didn't mean anything by the donkey comment. To be honest, I believed him at first too! (made me feel more like an ass than a donkey.)
