We had a lot of fun at the party, and it was so beautiful. There were tables in front of a lot of the big tanks, and one of those tanks also had portholes cut in the floor, so that you could stand over a giant shark swimming below you, or see the rays up close. Beautiful.
The food was good, the band too loud, and the people were great.
It really reminded me, forcibly, that Xilinx-Longmont has a lot of really great people. That was a good thing.
