    That picture makes me really want a chocolate muffin. Damn. (I am waiting for a delivery that so obviously is never going to arrive and thus cannot leave the house. :( )

  2. Brian says:

    Oh, do you know the muffin man,

    The muffin man, the muffin man,

    Oh, do you know the muffin man,

    That delivers to One Microsoft Way?

  3. MadQ says:

    I’ll bet there are plenty of muffins. Just have everyone hold their keyboards upside-down, and shake :-)

  4. Gene says:

    So if I find the muffin thief, I get to say "me and a couple thousand friends[1] would like to CHAT" in a very Don Corleone tone of voice?

    You might want to ask the Bungie folks… knowing those guys and their seriousness about snacks I’m sure THEY have an alternate muffin failover system. :-)

    [1] I assume the muffinless pissed-off folks on the MS Campus are at least that many…

  5. Master Thief says:

    Oh man, I could not eat another muffin. I am so stuffed.

    No, wait, yes I can. Mmmmmmm….

  6. Illuminator says:

    I get scared when it’s muffin day around here, those greasy things can be irresistible but give me constipation like no other.

  10. Okay so folks know that I'm going upside down in November to Wayne's http://www.smbfocus.com conference

  11. Drak says:

    I wonder what they are gonna do with the muffin truck… Maybe some sort of bank heist involving giving drugged muffins to the guards?

    [Nick – Inspired by this?]

    That may indeed have been in the back of my mind :)

WHY DID I DUPLICATE THIS CONTENT HERE? Let me first say this site has never had anything to sell and has never shown ads of any kind. I have nothing monetarily to gain by duplicating content here. Because I had made my own local copy of this content throughout the years, for ease of using tools like grep, I decided to put it online after I discovered some of the original content previously and publicly available, had disappeared approximately early to mid 2019. At the same time, I present the content in an easily accessible theme-agnostic way.

The information provided by Raymond's blog is, for all practical purposes, more authoritative on Windows Development than Microsoft's own MSDN documentation and should be considered supplemental reading to that documentation. The wealth of missing details provided by this blog that Microsoft could not or did not document about Windows over the years is vital enough, many would agree an online "backup" of these details is a necessary endeavor.
