Thread: PC Expo Free Passes Contest

--- Win a Free Exhibits Pass to PC Expo in New York ---
We (Ilium Software) have received 2 extra passes to PC Expo in New York, that we'd like to give away to 2 Brighthand readers, courtesy of Ilium Software, Brighthand, and Mobile Computing and Communications Magazine.
These are exhibit-only passes, each a $125 value. PC Expo dates are Tuesday, June 26 - Thursday, June 28.
To enter the contest, just post a reply in this discussion thread. In the interests of making the contest simple enough to enter but interesting enough to read, each entry should include a quotation (can be from a movie, song, or just a stand-alone quote). Relevant to handheld computing would be nice, but isn't required.
The contest will end when we've received 60 entries, or Friday June 15, whichever is sooner.
See you in New York!

If that's not relevant to handheld computing, I don't know what is.

Read this quote the other day and it hit me right at home....
"Real programmers don't comment on their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand."
-Somebody, Somewhere on the internet....

Gotta have it
It would be a delight to have the passes since I'm now working in NYC, here's my quote:
In a loud sharp voice "Get your hand out of my pocket!!!!!", from Spike lee's "Malcom X" (used as a distraction during Malcom X's assasination). Hey, it had the word Pocket in it, plus the movie was primarily based in NYC - same local as the Expo right?

Since I am always on the Subway or Train with my Pocket PC, I find myself answering a lot of questions about my CasioEM-500 Pocket PC. This is my made up quote for the contest entry:
Stranger: "Is that a Palm in your hand?
Me: "Can a Palm do this? It is a Pocket PC, not a Palm!!"
