Do you recall a little over a month ago when I posted a column about a 2020 Calendar featuring Engineers’ Desktops?
If so, you may remember that the folks at Screaming Circuits were in the process of creating this little rascal. Of course, I couldn’t resist, so I submitted an image of the Pleasure Dome (my office), and I prompted everyone I know to do the same.
Well, I just heard that the calendars have been printed. According to my chums at Screaming Circuits, they are “large and glossy and super dorky” (by which I assume they mean the calendars, and not the folks sending the email).
They also say that all my friends are going to be jealous. Once again, I think they are talking about the calendar, as opposed to my cutting wit, rugged good looks, and sartorial sense of fashion (but I could be mistaken).
I’m told that my calendar is winging its way to me as we speak. What’s really cool is that you can have one too. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with your postal address saying you’d love a calendar, and they will make sure you get one (while supplies last).
Furthermore, if you are interested in participating next year, just note this in the subject line of your email — something like “Please send a calendar; I’d like to participate next year; Max truly is Magnificent,” or words to that effect.
