Here we are at TechEd Europe 2009 and there's no surprise to see a rather tragic game show in progress. The big surprise, however, is that it's not the UK's own Ant and Dec (aka The Chuckle Brothers, aka Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, aka Laurel and Hardy aka Richard Costall and Dave McMahon) who are doing it. Nope, it's Germany's answer to The Kings Of Crappy Game Shows, Hyper-D and Hyper-T. And on The Sad And Tragic Scale it's right up there. This one's about putting hats on and taking them off (I don't remember Terry Wogan doing this one). And not a "sometimes working, sometime not" WPF app in sight. The double act may be the same but on The Swagometer you'd have to say that Hyper-D and Hyper-T are in a new league: their prize is a brand new laptop. Kind of takes the shine off a t-shirt and a NxtGen mug a bit.
