Anyone watching TnaG last night?
There was a program about a guy visiting the USA. Hector, the guy
presenting the show is fairly strange/wacky which helps :)
He was in Detroit in last nights' program and visited Microsoft
headquarters there! He walked into the reception and asked to speak to
Bill Gates. When asked if he had an appointment he of course replied in
the affirmative, while blathering on in Irish (to the camera)that he
The poor receptionist rang someone and was told that no, "Hector from
Irish TV" didn't have an appointment. He left but first asked for a fax
number, then realising where he was asked for an email address.
Graciously, he said he wasn't upset that Bill declined to meet him.
I have to say I enjoyed it, his talking in Irish(helped by sub-titles)
added to the show and he even got several stabs at MS (crashing
machines, wrote up the script on an iMac..) so maybe if we ask TnaG
nicely they might give us some publicity :)
