who's the dude with the rp?

see hp.com for info on the midrange only one spof superdome architecture server.

It kind of kicks ass:

Who's the dude in the photo, and what's he doing?

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

They must have changed the picture. All I see are a half size tower and a full size.

No dude at all.

Hmm Nice ...

The guy...I don't know who....but about what:

...looks like he's checking out her midrange system...dah...that is if we're looking at the same picture you did.

Just a thought,

To me it looks like he is trying to dip his pen in the company ink. And the girl turned him down.

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

Hi there.
Is it possible, that sysadmins have some strange kind of humor, which does not apply to other people ? Showed this to some clerks here, they did not show a reaction of humor but a strange glance at me.

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

I see now with eyes wide open.

One strangeness I see is the 3 foot wide walkway surrounded by windows.

They should have used people that were about the same height, one no-no in advertising PR is to have what looks like a dominate position, tall man looking down on a woman.

Bill, the 2nd pic you sent looks like an uncomfortable position, it would hurt to stand that way for long.

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

It's obvious. He's an Oracle DBA and he wants to know when you'll have the system up and running for him. :)

At least it's better than the two guys in the space suits that 'Brand X' uses in their advertisements.

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

They aren't going to revitalize that stupid "What If" commercial are they?

Scene: The man checking her out, and then he thinks: "What if I had a computer, with a big database? Maybe I'll try an ioscan -fn first?"
The woman in the scene thinks to herself "And I'll make your fault lights blink!"

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

Not sure what kind of pose the woman has, looks suggestive.

Watch me wiggle my hips, do a little dance, sort of look.

And the dude is appreciative.

This picture does nothing for the page, a pic of Bill grinning would be better.

Re: who's the dude with the rp?

Hello gang,

obviously the "system requirements" for Windows XP are glass walls with lots of flowers on the outside (for watching while the PC brue-screens?) and floors to stand around and flirt with somebody of the opposite sex.
Sooner or later they had to issue some serious advice - I was waiting for this first occurence for almost 20 years now!

Deepak: boots, definitely - I have seen a lot of women wearing those the previous month in moscow ;-) But she is not russian, the skirts there were way shorter (at about zero degrees centigrade).

And none of them is from hp, since they do not seem to be that much "enthusiastic" ...

perhaps they are from M$ and do not like that about the release of the "Fall of the Microsoft Windows XP"???

Just my ???0.0000002,
