What a whirlwind day it’s been. As I mentioned earlier, Friday was my last day at Microsoft so I could chase the dream of programming in Clipper and MS-DOS. I was just about to push the “Buy it Now!” button on an eBay auction for Clipper 3.5″ disks when I got the call from my former manager Jeff Sandquist promising an endless supply of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and 30 26.5 ounce bottles of Nutella if I came back to Microsoft. He also said he would force Nishant to report to Clint going forward. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse so starting this afternoon, I’m back at my original role at Microsoft.
It was an exciting day indeed and I’ll look back on Clipper fondly but I know where I’m needed…at Microsoft and pushing for the open web!
