“no one needs to scroll” – Matt Chotin, Flex Product Manager

July 25, 2008

Friday afternoon, approximately 4 PM. The team is itching to get to Mars, the local bar where SF Adobe folks flock to after work. I promised Matt I’d go with him and some other Thermo/Flex/FlexBuilder team members to grab a drink. Then I realized I broke the Gumbo Scrollbar. Ensuing IM conversation below….

When coding gets in the way of beer, you see what can happen.

    I can see this being the Flex version of Bill Gates’ famous “640k should be enough for everyone” quip.
