    While taking a break in a wi-fi cafe in the hospital (my son is in the NICU) was playing around on YouTube and came across this video... it is of the last UO Dev Team meeting held in Redwood Shores CA before moving to the Fairfield location.

    Can anyone pick out and name any of the devs from this video???


    For those who have not seen the video, the best line of the song is at the end.
  2. While it is old news, it's interesting that now Lord British himself commented it. Very cool.

    And if you doubt that's him, click on the name, and his one and only "Favorite" video.. It's him and Starr Long opening a beer with small rocket. [​IMG] (Warning of vulgar language if you find it)

    This has "Bud Light: Real Men of Genius" commercial written all over it. [​IMG]


    Bud Light Presents: Real Men of Genius.
    (Real men of geeeniuuusss)
    Today we salute you, Mr. Rocket Bottle Opener
    (Mr. Rocket booootttlllee Ooopener!)
    Not satisfied with conventional methods of beverage unlocking
    you take opening your Bud Light to the next level.. of Earth's Startasphere
    Only you would pit yourself against gravity, a match, and a heavy crosswind
    to reach out for pure liquid refereshment
    (Watch out for that bird, now!)
    Solid Propellent, Liquid Propellent? Who cares?!
    So long as the tab is ripped off and sent to the moon on a one-way mission
    at a rate that would rival a Saturn V rocket, any blast will do
    (You're a stttaaaaarrrrr!) <[Those who don't know, recurring chorus in many of those commercials]
    Not since the invention of the tin can phone has anyone put a single piece of string, a tin can, and two people to good use.
    Your knowledge of aeronautics, engineering, and solid state rockets
    has finally paid off in a way that's sure to please the ladies at a party
    (Hoooooold on to that strinnnggg!)
    So crack open a Bud Light, Oh Cosmonaut of the Cap
    Because when it comes to opening your beer,
    You're out of this world.
    (Mr. Rocket booootttlllee Ooopener!)

    It kinda reminded me of the last night at summer camp when I was a kid. They always had campfire sing-alongs and everyone was forced to sing even as they were depressed that they knew it was all over... I was just curious how many of the devs people could recognize & name from that video and/or remain today.
