My (Not So) Soggy Buddy

I signed up 2 ISV Buddies, one of whom is a former co-worker named Thomas Dmitri. Thomas (or Tommy as he was known back then) may be most famous for his karaoke version of "Funky Cold Medina" at the company Christmas party many years back, or perhaps for his great contributions to Windows telephony.

Anyway, he now has a small (very small) software company in New Orleans, about which more later, and I adopted him as one of my Buddies. He sent me a pre-alpha version of his product and when I asked him about an update he said: "We might make a new release Friday depending on whether or not we have to evacuate New Orleans."

There's something you don't usually have to worry about when doing release management.

But I checked yesterday, and all was well: "Luckily, it just missed N.O. It got windy, some branches fell, some rain started, then it just died down. No power loss, no flooding (we are 13ft below sea level), no nothing. I guess it turned east last night. So little rain, I have to water plants my today."
