    I agree. But the creative effort in coming up with a visual studio outfit with the api signatures on it, well I'm just impressed. Obviously he is trolling, but in a month of Sundays I could not come up with a visual studio api jumper. With the added benefit of throwing in scrum master, well it's just good.

    I'm not sure he/she/it isn't serious, judging by previous posts

    What you need to do, is get on over here and get your own tracksuit: https://getonfleek.com/

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    At one gig I say a guy wearing a tee shirt with 'vi' on the back, thought he was one of us cool unix-types women fawn over. Turned out he wasn't, it was some attempt at being cool by have the roman numeral 6 on it. And he didn't know how to get out of input mode or set line numbers.

    New contractor that has joined us wears a Visual Studio tracksuit.

    Anyhow, as this contractor is our new scrum master, he's suggested we all invest in one as he wants to promote a more "sports team" like environment and have us all jump to it and get over to the whiteboard table at the prompt of "ok guys, timeout".

    Would this be allowable?
    And there's me thinking a polo shirt with company logo on it would be a bit OTT? Has anyone smacked him in the chops yet?

    qh
    He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    Safety equipment doesn't come into that definition, IIRC. Perhaps as an anti-safety measure this trackie could be considered in the same manner. By wearing such a vile outfit someone might bump off the OP?
