I read a variety of technical blogs. Some are agile, some are
pragmatic, while others are iffy, lazy, angry or corporate. Most of them
have extensively documented approaches to programming, and zealots of each
approach engange in long blog battles over why they’re right and everybody
else is an idiot. I don’t really have a name for my approach, but my

This is what I repeat to myself everytime I open Visual Studio or Enterprise
Manager (“Enterprise Damager” as my network buddy Brad calls it). I like

My prize was Polarity; you can see the other prizes from last month at http://www.community-credit.com/CommunityCreditPrizePage.aspx (as well as this monthâ€™s prizes).
Utilizing the forces of magnetism, players take turns placing hovering magnetic discs on the board in order to impose chaos on their opponent. This chaos, which causes discs that are in play to come together in a flash of magnetic frenzy, results in scoring opportunities. Stacks of more than one disc (towers) are counted as points and the player with the most points at the end of a game wins. Those are the basics.
Want to compete for June? Get on board at www.communitycredit.com. This monthâ€™s prizes are totally cool, so donâ€™t sign up yet. Seriously. Wait until June.
