BenNadel.com Gets Its First Valentine!

By Ben Nadel on

Typically, on holidays like Valentine's Day, I like to make a fun graphic for my website. But today, someone beat me to it! This morning, I was very flattered and excited to wake up to the following email:

To Ben,
I just wanted to say how much I love your web site. The videos and tutorials you've posted about JQuery have been so helpful!! I have to admit I don't really read your Cold Fusion posts since I'm a PHP developer (don't hold it against me LOL), but I really respect what you're doing. Here's wishing you and your webstie a very happy valentine's day! I'm looking forward to reading more good stuff!
- Alicia

Never knew that having a blog could get you with a date. *Joking ofcourse.

It's always fun to see such things from the fans, and to be sincere I never seen something like this before. You're one of a kind.

I am speechless! This must be your lucky day! ;-P But seriously Ben, you deserve to be praised. This girl probably did us all a favour by heightening your motivation. ;)

Great to see that there are other female developers out there .. sometimes there feels like there are too few of us.. also, perhaps Alicia would like to visit the PHPWomen Group (if she hasn't already).. Be nice to have someone else who understands jQuery lol..

I have to agree with Adam.

I would maybe buy it if Ben hadn't done that whole "I got punched in the face by an ASP developer because I was wearing a ColdFusion shirt" thing.

INSERT INTO GetLucky (HottieID, RockOutOclock)

INNER JOIN Jobs J on J.Id = U.JobID
WHERE U.cup = 'C'
AND U.isGeek = 1
AND J.JobDescription LIKE '%' --whocares

Yeah I don't buy this for second.. I did at first then Terry reminded me that this is most likely another Nadel wind up like the whole manly PHP vs Coldfusion bar brawl.

Damn you Nadel!!

Though awesome post.. ;)

haha! - nice photoshop work Ben!
We should now as readers really know that you always look for some nice photostock images of women.

And didn't you have a girlfriend who does this already for you?

Indeed Terrance, he's fooling around with us again and it's not even 1st of April yet. Oh boy.. what can we expect than.

Kathryn, there are enough female developers in the world. My girlfriend for example has done a webdesign and animation study and has learned some CF of me ofcourse.

In the company I work at the moment are currently two female programmers (CF!).

Im sure there are plenty of PHP and ASP developers out there too, just don't want to be bothered with that hehe.

Ben: this post works very well with the fake CF9 versus PHP or ASP or JSP adult dating commercials hehe.

anyway now it's too late, but anyway a hope you all had a nice valentine's day. I went out for dinner with my gf here in Sandnes.

I'd go with
WHERE U.cup >= 'B'

instead of locking it down on C

That girl couldn't even type the opening and closing PHP tags. I bet you can find her on Craig's List if you look hard enough!

She looks familiar actually.

Wasn't she the one who had a problem with her photocopier in "Awesome Hot Office Vixens 7"?

:p

@tof & @ seutje,

I think it should be u.cup >= 'C'

when I first read that, I was like, what's wrong with the above C's???
