A new definition of chaos

I'm at a Microsoft conference in Copenhagen this week, and the conference bag included a small radio controlled car. Neat, you might think, fun for all the developers on the cold winter nights here in Denmark.

Unfortunately someone has made a teeny tiny mistake.

All the cars are on the same frequency.

So that's 3000 developers and 3000 cars all interfering with each other...

Would never happen at a LUG.

Actually, I now have three of these little cars from three different sources, and now have a more charitable theory: there is only one frequency.

So maybe it would happen at a LUG.

This almost demands video footage.

It says something about geeks and their toys, although I'm not quite sure what.
