SQLKilt / WIT Shirts

October 19, 2010 News-ish, SQLPASS, SSC, WIT 4 Comments

This shirt was specifically requested by an online friend who shall remain nameless (his name rhymes with “Duck Hoodie”).  Another online friend (name rhymes with “Penny Sherry”) recommended we get a bunch of those shirts from a local printer for tons cheaper. So I did.
