Giving away Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN (free)

Very simple (since I know lots of DC members are against Facebook), all you have to do is leave a comment on the blog post on why you want it and what you'll do with it.  Couldn't be easier.

I have one suggestion.  They should award me a copy so that I can come back here and testify it ain't one of those contests where nobody really wins anything.  ;)

All I know is if I hit the SuperGigaZillaBucks or whatever they call it, I wouldn't be on TV saying "even though I now have 20 $Billion I'm going to keep my job at the Post Office because I love pushing the mail around that comes in on the conveyor belt."

I have actually thought about this, and I would keep my current job, if I won the lottery - I like what I do, and the people I do it with.

If $20Billion doesn't change your thinking, I guess you wouldn't play in the first place. I mean, what's the point?

More money = more opportunity to do what you already like?  I'm the same way.  I like what I do, and the people I do it with.  However, $20 Billion would let me enjoy my downtime in a wider variety of ways.  Just because I like working doesn't mean there's not use in the money.  Take a vacation to everywhere in the world.  Live exactly where you want.  Don't worry about balancing the checkbook every week, or your paycheck, because you really don't need it.  A job isn't *just* about money ideally, and taking away the money aspect would definitely make a job even more enjoyable than it is.

Time is winding down to get entered.  All it takes is a comment on the blog post.
