10 year swag

I passed the 10 year marker as a Microsoft Certified Trainer in 2006.  Last night I received my 10-year MCT pack (no, don’t start, it’s nice for them to give me something at all).  As you may know, I love swag.  I am extremely cheap, ask anyone.
So it does seem a little churlish (have you ever seen a little churl?) to complain.  But the MCT-engraved travel adaptor allows me to plug American plugs into UK sockets, but not the other way around.  The most exciting gizmo is a remote-control mouse pointer for Powerpoint.  I’ve tried it on two machines so far, and it doesn’t work.  I daren’t try the USB battery charger.
The laptop bag is great, though.  And you know, I lurve laptop bags.

    Hmmm not fair, my bag of half working goodies hasn\’t turned up. To quote Dire Stairts – "I want my MCT… Swag" Although I maintain charging car batteries from USB port is a bad plan…

    The bag is nice, but I am in the same boat as you Bob.  The laser pointer/remote-clicker-thingy doesn\’t work.  I don\’t see myself using the power adapter anytime soon.  I did however, try the USB charger and it provided power to my phone, although when plugged into a computer, I get no indicator that the batteries are charging, so…
