Bill Gates Retires from Microsoft - Buh-Buy Billie Boy!

Well, it's official! Bill Gates has, indeed, "officially" retired from Microsoft today. Well, OK, so "technically" it was yesterday...but hey, it's 4 o'clock in the morning here, so it's still "today" for me! :)

Anyway, this surely marks the end of an era for the software giant. And though Billy Boy will still remain Microsoft's non-executive chairman, the weight of Microsoft's future now fully rests of the shoulders of Microsoft Corporation's current CEO, Steve Ballmer, who was officially named Microsoft's CEO in January of 2000 (though many people aren't aware of that).

So yes, today (er...yesterday, kinda) was Bill Gates' last day at Microsoft as a full-time employee (LOL @ "employee"). And as Gates said, with tears in his eyes, at a gathering on the company's scenic headquarters campus in Redmond, Washington, "My life's work is really about software and working with incredible people."

Gates also added, "There won't be a day in my life when I won't be thinking about Microsoft, the great things that we're doing and wanting to help."

For the Lulz: Oh yeah, and just for the lulz...here are the most current results for a Microsoft Windows-relate poll I had on my blog this week. Ah yes, the great things Microsoft is doing. :P

My Yacht and the Swimsuit Models

Well, it looks like I was missed just a little bit more than I had expected. Jim recently informed me in the comments of this post that there was a search party sent out to look for me (87 volunteers strong, apparently), a helicopter and rescue team, as well as some bloodhounds. Oh my!

In addition, my good friend Diane sent me an email that read...

"So your blog, which had remained untouched for a long time, now sports a saying that you are sorry but it will remain untouched for awhile longer. Where can I go to get the Aaron spiel on things?? I am starting to feel deprived. I even had to go look up my own, "Will it blend?" episodes. Not to mention Chuck Norris one-liners."

Well, it certainly is nice to be missed. I just wish my absence was due to more exciting things than being busy and a bit burnt out. Perhaps something like...

Friend 1: Boy, I really miss Aaron.
Friend 2: Yeah, me too. He and the girls have certainly been gone on his yacht for a long time.
Friend 1: No Kidding. What's it...three weeks now they've been cruising through the Caribbean and partying?
Friend 2: Yeah, I believe so. Hey, how'd he get all those swimsuit models anyway?!
Friend 1: He's Aaron!
Friend 2: Yep, he's Aaron.


Anyway, here are some brand new Will It Blend? videos for those of you who may have been missing them...and plagued with the burdensome chore of having to hunt them down all on your own. :P

I especially like the second one since it's a spoof on the Will It Blend? series. Pretty funny, indeed.

Will It Blend? - Mario Kart

Does It Blend? - Lightsabers

Btw, thanks also to Forest Parks and Bobby Revell who were also kind enough to welcome be back. :)

WTF?! Where The Heck Is Aaron?

Hey everyone, just letting you all know that I am, in fact, still alive! Just been extremely busy lately...and working on a few very interesting side projects as well.

Naw, fur realz, yo! Been very busy, indeed.

Yes, BLAARGGAG!!! Whattheheckdidyouthink?!

No, it's not a clever ruse, old bean. 'Tis indeed completely factual. I swear, for I speaketh the truth. The whole truth, the honest truth, and nothing but the truth.

In fact, I'll be back here shortly to post again and to give you a full update on my recent goings on. In the meantime, if you wanna reach me, just hit me up on Yuwie or MySpace. Until then, be sure to have an awesomely stellar day!
