In a recent interview, in reference to the Eclipse Platform team, Mike Milinkovich was quoted as saying: "...pound for pound, I think it's one of the best software engineering teams on the planet."
While I certainly agree with Mike that we, the Platform team, have collectively gained some weight over the past few years (as it was evident at EclipseCon2007 last week), I still found it inappropriate for him to announce that fact in a press release.
One could argue that the Eclipse Foundation is partly responsible for that. At EclipseCon, they threw an awesome party for the committers and the community where almost $3,000 worth of carbs was consumed past 10 pm. According to the genius Dr Phil, you should not eat past 7 pm.
Also, have you heard of those things called 'cookies'? They are delicious!
I, for one, am really trying. I work out every day (as Wayne would attest), have gone completely off dairy this week and plan to eat a plum for breakfast every morning starting next Monday.
One would hope that the Eclipse Foundation would stand by us in thinness and in fat.
