Free Beer!

Whenever I meet someone new, and they ask what I do for a living, the next questions is usually something computer related.

Matt: "I'm the IT Manager for an ad agency in boulder"

Person: "Oh, really, I have computer question for you."

Usually people offer nothing in return for my expertise. Once in a while my wisdom is appreciated and repaid with things like free dinners, concert tickets, and indentured servitude.

Today I got a call from an old friend at the New Belgium Brewery. She said that if I answered a few questions from her IT Guy, she'd give me my weight in beer. All of a sudden I'm wishing I wasn't so skinny.
