What has Troyer Done for you?

Once long ago, on a Saturday Afternoon, a little bit before dinner time some vEXPERTs were plotting.

vEXPERT1: We get in through the underground heating system here… up through to the main audience chamber here… and John’s Wookie Costume is here. Having grabbed the Wookie, we inform John that its is in our custody and forthwith issue our demands. Any questions?
vEXPERT4: What exactly are the demands?
vEXPERT2 We’re giving John two days to Deliver the entire Public vEXPERT and Free licenses for all VMware products and if he doesn’t agree immediately we burn it.
vEXPERT3: Cut its head off?
vEXPERT1: Cut all its bits off, send ’em back every hour on the hour… show him we’re not to be trifled with.
vEXPERT3: Also, we’re demanding a ten foot mahogany statue of the Emperor Paul Maritz with burning a Microsoft Flag.
vEXPERT5: What? They’ll never agree to that, Reg
vEXPERT3: That’s just a bargaining counter. And of course, we point out that John bears full responsibility when we chop it up, and… that we shall not submit to blackmail.
all vEXPERTS (Applause) No blackmail!
vEXPERT3: John’s bled us white, the *********. He’s taken All our free time, not just from us, from our Techies and from our Techies’ Techies’.
vEXPERT5: And from our Techies’, Techies’, Techies.
vEXPERT3: Yes
vEXPERT5: And from our Techies, Techies, Techies’, Techies .And from our Techies’, Techies’, Techies’, Techies’, Techies’.
vEXPERT3 All right, vEXPERT5. Don’t labour the point. And what have John ever given us in return?
vEXPERT2: The vEXPERT program.
vEXPERT3: Oh yeah, yeah he gave us that. Yeah. That’s true.
Masked vEXPERT: And the Blogger Lounge!
vEXPERT: Oh yes… The Bloggers Lounge, vEXPERT1, you remember what VMworld used to be like.
vEXPERT3: All right, I’ll grant you that the vEXPERT program and the Bloggers Lounge are two things that John has done…
vEXPERT6: And the Community…
vEXPERT3: (sharply) Well yes obviously the Community… the Community goes without saying. But apart from the vEXPERT program, the Bloggers Lounge and the Community…
Another Masked vEXPERT: Access to Beta Programs…
Other Masked vEXPERTs: Licenses… Emgbargo’d Breifings… Opportunities for Betterment…
vEXPERT3: Yes… all right, fair enough…
vEXPERT Near Front: And the Party…
All vEXPERTs: Oh yes! True!
vEXPERT1: Yeah. That’s something we’d really miss if Jonh left, Reg.
Masked vEXPERT at Back: Our Private Forum section!
vEXPERT5: And it’s safe to walk in talk in the Forums at night now.
vEXPERT1: Yes, John certainly know how to keep order… (general nodding)… let’s face it, he’s the only ones who could in a place like that.
  (more general murmurs of agreement)
vEXPERT3: All right… all right… but apart the Bloggers Lounge and Licenses and Embargo’d Breifings and Access to Beta Programs and Opportunities for Betterment and
the Community and the vEXPERT Program and our Private Forum Section  and The ability for Free Speech… what has the John done for us?
vEXPERT2: Brought US ALL Together!
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN AND THANKS FOR ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE
DONE FOR US
 
 
 
Apologies for the vastly Talented Monty Python team for my pathetic attempt at a spoonerism.
