Great time though, we closed down the bar atop the space needle

The only diff between me and the MS guys, I like Porsches, they like the next HP calculator!!! (and of course, millions in stock options!)

Sadly, I rode the Space Needle elavator down with a .12 at 2:00 am, (not bragging, just the way the circumstances played out I could not say three cohesive words to save my life! , the MS guys looked like a fish in water)

Thank god I was with these MS geeks, they dropped me off at my hotel

Next Question:

What was the name of the landlord that called Jerry a "Fancy Guy"?

Regards
Jimmy

Been in the biz since the TRS-80 days, I am the R&D director for Data Control Corp located in the Sac, California area.

Started in GWBASIC (thanks Bill Gates), then C then C++ and now in CSharp .NET

Mostly Gov contracts dealing with security issues (banking, gov and financial only)

I urge you to lean towards CS, there are great op's out there for brilliant students!

This is one area that does not out source!!!

Regards

I seem to remember that on his refrigerator, Jerry had a sticker or magnet from a very famous professional driving school. Anybody else see it and remember what it was?

Big fan of Seinfeld and trivia (and of mistakes and "replacements" in movies, television shows).

Biggest movie blunder: A supposedly "dead" orc begins to get up during the end of Fellowship of the Ring.

Seinfeld trivia: What was the order of people in the King/Queen of "their domain"? Easy one: Did the actor portraying Kramer actually take the raisens?

If you're asking what order they fell it was Kramer, Elaine then we never saw if it was George or Jerry since they dropped the same night (though they showed George then Jerry sleeping soundly).

delerio: I think you may be mistaken. I believe George won. If you recall the episode where George was a "hand model", you will note that there was discussion of the last great hand model who love his hands... "too much". George made a comment about how he wouldn't have a problem with that as he was master of his domain.

It was a musical that George was singing when they met up at the restuarant. Was it "How do you solve a problem like Maria" from the Sound of Music?

NOT sure that I answered it properly.

Name two recurring Seinfeld characters that were played by different actors:

I wasn't sure about my answer... maybe it'll come to me or someone else will get the right tune. You are correct on the first. The second was Lloyd Braun.
