Who doesn�t like the game Centipede � fast, furious action in the garden where centipedes and spiders attack you mercilessly as you dodge through toadstools trying to eliminate the unwanted pests.  Ever wonder where this game came from, and who created it?  Now is your chance to meet the creator of Centipede � Dona Bailey � at the upcoming Harrison .NET User Group meeting on November 3rd, 2009.  Not resting on her laurels, Dona has remained busy in the software industry, and will be speaking that night on  3D modeling as well as her experiences at Atari and with creating the game Centipede.

To register for this FREE event, just visit http://www.clicktoattend.com/?id=141461 and sign up.

Oh � and did I mention the prize?  The User Group will be giving away a Vintage Centipede Arcade Game as the grand prize!  Here�s a picture, in case you are curious on how well it will fit in the back of your Ford Festiva:

  1. There are some pretty reasonable flights from DFW into the nearby Branson, MO, airport ($99 each way on airtran.com).

    If anybody from Dallas does make it, I'll see to it that they get double prize tickets towards the Centipede arcade machine.
