Stick a Fork In It

Here’s a mail that I sent this week at work:

Subject: Stick a Fork In It

Almost 14 years ago, I started off in Building 31/3381 (technically a window office) debugging IE stress failures.  For someone fresh out of college, who’s only experience in x86 assembly was a class assignment to program Conway’s Game of Life, this was a daunting assignment.  Fourteen years later, I’m still spending time debugging crashes, and I still enjoy it.  But it’s time to exit this frame and push a new frame on the stack.  I’ve decided to seek an opportunity outside of Microsoft.

I’m not good at goodbye mails.  And my interpretive dance skills sort of suck.  So I wrote a little app instead (you can grab the zip file from my Dropbox).  And remember: Have fun.

Next week, I’ll follow up with instructions on debugging the app…
