OT: Let's get some t-shirt ideas for .NET and/or Agile

Kinda off topic...

I went online today looking for T-shirts to reward an IT team that used
Agile development on a .Net project to build a workflow system using XML...
yada, yada, yada

Anyway, 90% of the t-shirts were geared towards Linux or gaming.
Personally, I'm not much for wearing a penguin.

I'd like to get a list of fun messages that you have seen, or would like to
see, on a t-shirt highlighting .Net development and/or agile methods. I'll
present the list to some T-Shirt companies to get them thinking. (e.g. you
don't get to keep them. All of this stuff goes to public domain except for
registered trademarks).

Try to avoid trademarks.
Go for plays on words, or simply have fun with syntax.
Double meanings are encouraged.
Take everything with a grain of salt.
It is OK to offend a few geeks.

I'll start:

Have you had your Scrum today?
Geek + Life = Agile
Looking for a few good pairs
When all else fails, obfuscate
Test Twice, Code Once
Ask the customer, Ask the customer, Ask the customer
<geek />
Too clear. Please obfuscate.
J*: write once, test everywhere
look# -- feel#
Air# - Land# - C#
JIT Me
VB.Net: when you want to be able to actually read it
We test all job applicants for drug use. If you use Linux, don't bother to
apply
C# Eagle
<IUseXml because="it">works</IUseXml>
Can you obfuscate that for me?
DotNet: Code for Actual People To Use
It's not Refactoring if it doesn't work yet.

You are brave Nick, very brave. But this is a .Net newsgroup and you are
from Microsoft.... I hope you get some good replies! Ken.

Well it would beat wearing a picture of Bill G :)

Both have the same basic principles, and both are better than the
alternatives.

You need to add parenthetically that a $99 charge will apply...

It gets even better.....

Microsoft has finally realized that users are being attacked by viruses.
It's TRUE! They figured it out all on their own!

Now, instead of making antivirus protection a feature of the OS, they want
you to pay $9.95 a month for a service to keep the OS that you bought from
them safe. Cool, huh? Put out an insecure OS, then charge people monthly
to secure it.... I LIKE it!

IMHO, it would serve Microsoft's long term goals and the consumer of this
over-priced OS if MS would simply go ahead an flop over to the
software-as-a-service model that the company stated as its goal by 2010.

Then, the antivirus feature would simply be another facet of a yearly
licensing fee that you pay Microsoft to be able to use your computer
hardware.

That's right......The OS is a user-fee. It's like gas for your
car.....except that gas works.

pride makes people stupid.

That said, I've seen a thousand people standing in line at a conference for
a goofy t-shirt... so why not?

I'm still waiting for some good replies :)

Hey Nick,

I didn't think you'd get much on this one. Better to post something like
this early in the morning, then you'll get your crowd. Just so you don't go
empty handed I'll add a few. ;-} However I wouldn't catagorize them as
good replies. Ken.

T-shirts?
What was it, an offshore team?
I've heard they work cheap, but that's ridiculous.

Okay, here are a few you might use....

Objects in .Net may be farther away than they appear

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING:
Extreme programming may cause addiction to abstraction.

Knowlege found common among professional programmers:
They have already learned the Garbage Collector will not
clean up their sloppy code.

My best day includes writing 50% less code!

If I had only one program to write for my country, I'd use .Net!

How about:

"An unknown error has occurred in module <unknown>"

or

"An unexpected error has occurred"

I couldn't help it. Those made me laugh. I've seen both of them, too.

Nick,
c'mon guys. Let's hear some real suggestions.

When you ask a question to a newsgroup and you ignore people, you should be
aware to be ignored as well next time. I see 5 answers you did not give a
reply.

What kind of T Shirt you want

"Microsoft is the winner"

That you should be able to find out yourself and therefore you need in my
opinion not to set a question to this newsgroups.
