A few weeks ago, I was going down to our datacenter to do some inventory and such. While working out the plan, I decided to take the opportunity to bring the QOL team together so that we could all meet and greet.

Though not all (one other person arrived late and didn't make that team photo) of them could make it, it was quite a turn out and we all had a blast in Las Vegas on Sept 10-12 (some of us stayed the whole weekend).

This is a photo of Team QOL and which also includes founder Greg Wexler (fifth from the left and to my right) and majority investor Kelly Olauson (fathest left), both of whom made the trip.

NOTE: This is just the core QOL team. There are twice that many third-party contractors who worked on Alganon but who didn't make it to the meet due to either scheduling issues or because they do not reside in the US.

I'm almost afraid to even let you guess :wink: I'll give you me: 4th from the left.

I could have said "I'm the geeky looking one", but something tells me that doesn't narrow it down much... :cool:
I'm currently drinking a Pepsi. Doesn't matter when you read this, it's most likely true.

I can guarantee that Padreic drank a Coke product! Luckily his insides were coated with so much Pepsi that he wasn't harmed (too badly).

PS: I'm the loaner on the far right.

The pics are already captioned.

I had my right hand in my pocket. Kelly has his left hand in his pocket. Greg also has his left hand in his pocket. So yeah, it was a pocket thing and Ilan didn't get the memo.

And yah, we had an absolute blast. And yes, I think everyone was flat drunk as evidenced by my $600+ bar tab for that evening alone. Not to mention the other pics. OMG!! There is no way in hell that we're posting those!

Man Law #38??? Not familiar with that one (until now), so I'll have to blame the waitress for "fruiting my beer"! :wacko:
