First off, I promise I'm still alive. Work has just been absolutely insane lately and it doesn't allow me a lot of time to get to blog about the graph stuff I love so much. I'm hoping that changes soon!
To that end, it would seem that the good folks at DZone have sent me a goodie box (or, as I call it, a "swag bag" because it rhymes and I'm easily amused) in order to give me a kick in the rear end.
Or to say, "thank you." Either way, it's pretty awesome.
Here's a picture I took of me this morning (pre-coffee/anything) with the shirt they sent me:
I was a bit confused at first why they would send a "vɘb" shirt. When a colleague of mine told me that it's ironic that I was wearing a "dev" shirt since I haven't been a plain ol' dev in awhile, I snorted and told him, "Shows what you know! It's a vɘb shirt!" He then shook his head and walked away. It wasn't until I was getting some water that I put two and two together.
