    Hi everybody--

    I work for RIM at the Mississauga campus. I'm one of 15
    finalists in Red Gate Software's "DBA In Space" contest. First prize
    is a suborbital space flight to an altitude of 100km, which is the
    official start of "outer space".

    Voting for the winner started a couple days ago, and goes until
    next Tuesday Dec 13 at 12:00GMT. Voters can vote once per day, per
    email address, at the URL in my signature below.

    VOTE ME OFF THIS ROCK!! I promise if I win, I won't get drunk and get kicked off the spaceship.

    I would link you to the press release, but because I don't have enough forum posts yet, I can't post links. If you do a google search for "dbainspace press release finalists", you'll find it. The finalists are listed, along with their employers.

    Actually there are a couple other RIM employees I want to send to the moon, but they are a little higher up the food chain.

    To the MOON JIM & MIKE!

    BUT I voted for Joe!

    Thanks everybody! Voting is only open until Tuesday, if you can find some time over the next few days to visit again, or follow my twitter feed (@gajarga) I'd appreciate it!

    Spaceflight trivia: Gordon Cooper calculated his "Faith 7" reentry angle by using his watch, looking at the stars out the window and doing the math IN HIS HEAD.

    Maybe I should bone up on my orbital geometry.
