After being woken up by call from Michael, I noticed a very large box sitting in my office. Since I wasn't expecting any shipment, I scanned with my bomb detector (Google search on the shipping address and a few intelligent shakes) before opening it up carefully with my box opener (aka toe-nail clipper).
It turned out to be a gift from MSN Search team to MSN Search Champs, a 30G Creative Nomad MP3 player. Very nice. Since I am too much of a cheapskate to buy an iPod, this will do very nice. Thanks guys! Very much appreciated.
Urgh. Nomad controls and UI sucks prime time, enough to make me want to bitchslap Creative engineers. I love the 30G of space but this is like covering chocolate with torns.
