SDN Points For Sale

Recently I found out that getting to ASUG/Sapphire 2009 in Orlando  is going to be a bit tough for me this year.  First, since my session submission was not accepted, that means no free registration. Second, nobody wants my travel expenses hitting their cost centers.  I guess I can’t blame anyone in these tough times.  So I am taking matters into my own hands and will try to foot the bill myself(sort of).  Most people know me from SDN, and know that I have accumulated a large amount of SDN points over the years.  These points started out as a way to entice people to contribute on SDN, and has worked quite well I think.  There was a time where you would get a free T-shirts when reaching certain point milestones.  Mostly people like them for recognition, now-a-days.  Anyway, I don’t really have any use for this points anymore, my wife has been nagging me to get rid of them, I’ve gotten all my T-shirts and other SAP swag, so I’ve decided to sell all my SDN points on eBay.  I have over 50,000 now, so there is plenty to go around.  I’m selling them in blocks of 1,000 at $19.99 a pop.  A good deal I think.  I plan to use the profits to finance my trip to ASUG/Sapphire, which means this could be viewed as a private charity as well, meaning that you can deduct the cost of your purchase on your taxes next year.  How great is that?   You get SDN points for doing nothing, and you don’t have to pay tax on that money.  And as an added bonus, you will get a good feeling knowing that you helped me get to ASUG/Sapphire.

Here is the Ebay link to the auction for anyone interested in bidding:


One final note, the sale is only for today, April 1st.

    Follow these steps to back-door corporate america:
    1) Submit multiple presentations for ASUG and tell your mgmt that you’ll be going for free since you are presenting
    2) Book your travel and get it approved since you are a presenter
    3) Get rejected by SAP and hang your head with shame (or fake shame)
    4) Attend Sapphire without the pressure of presenting and hang out with McWeeney/Ewh.

    Gotta love the Giant Hairball….
