Intern Fair

Today I manned a Monad demo booth at the Microsoft intern fair. It was from 3:30 to 7, which a break from 4:30 to 5:30 for a Steve Ballmer speech. Monad was very popular, I spent the whole time talking and typing with 3-5 people listening. Very encouraging to see people so excited about your product. The only problem was it was a pretty warm day, and the event was in a tent, so it got a bit toasty in there. Steven Sinofsky has a discussion of the event, including a link to some photos.

In the middle they kicked everyone out of the fair to go see SteveB talk. No matter what you say about Steve (and generally I say nice things about Steve), the guy is a great salesman. He could sell specs to the Indigo team. Listening to him talk about the future of the company you get incredibly pumped up about all the opportunities. When he says this is the greatest time to work at Microsoft, he either truly believes it, or I never want to play poker with him.

While I was standing listening to his talk someone saw my nametag, introduced themselves and said they had ready my first book and enjoyed it. That also warmed the cockles of my heart.

"Specs to the Indigo Team"? That's low (true, but low) :)

A person who is on Xanax should be extremely careful if he takes grape juice. Grape juice and the anti-anxiety medicine drug do not blend with each other quite well. Grape juice blocks a kind of enzyme, cytochrome P-450 3A4 1A2 in our intestinal wall. These enzymes are found in the liver and the intestinal tract. These enzymes are helpful in the metabolization of drugs. Drugs are mostly lipid-soluble. Cytochrome P450 enzymes break the drug in the gut itself making it water soluble, which then can be eliminated out of the body in the form of urine by the kidney. Hence it can be well understood that what a great job these cytochrome enzymes are doing. Xanax blocks this enzyme in the gut itself making the body retain the harmful effects of Xanax in the body itself, which otherwise could be eliminated from the body in the form of urine.

Xanax is an antidepressant which is basically used to treat anxiety disorders. People buy Xanax to treat all forms of anxiety disorder, be it panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder or any other kind of anxiety disorder. Pharmacies sell cheap Xanax which can be easily availed by the people who require it. For more information on the subject log on to http://www.buy-xanax-online-now.com
