Find a software project named after a friend and colleague.
Project James for example.
Read out loud random statements like, "James Comes Of Age", or "James v2.1.3 fixes several important defects, and contains functional improvements. All users are urged to upgrade to v2.1.3 as soon as possible."
Laugh, a lot.
Ask James if he’s up to version 2.1.3 yet.
The ‘Henry’ Project.
"The aim of the Henry project is to produce an ‘intelligent’ entity within a building which will address people by name and answer requests for information."
Hehe, yeah, he does that too.
Endless fun, until you run out of projects named after friends and colleagues.
