We recently rounded up the Socket gang (along with friends and family) for an evening of big blinds, bluffing and blackjack.

Dozens of Socketeers joined our Texas Hold 'Em tournament, battling fiercely for the title of Socket Poker Champion.

In the end, Lonnie (one of our service delivery specialists) ousted account executive Dave Giles at the final table to claim the title.

We're filling ours with nice emails from our customers.

They make for a nice little pick-me-up at lunchtime.

Like this one from Peter in Columbia, MO:

To say I am technically challenged puts it mildly. Mike patiently spent over an hour on the phone with me, first trying to analyze what had gone wrong, and then leading me through many steps and searches on my computer to eventually solve the problem. He was always calm, polite and reassuring (even when I wasn't at times). I just want to say thank you, Mike, for all the help and patience. (And the &%$#@ red light is finally off and the modem is online!)

And this one from David and Lorraine in Pleasant Hill, MO:

Every month, Socket employees nominate and vote on a co-worker who best exemplifies our Core Values and Beliefs.

This month, we picked Jason Vander Veen, technical support supervisor.

He joined the Socket team earlier this year and rapidly started to take on more responsibilities. When the department needed a new leader a few months ago, Jason fit the bill.

His team members say he's "like a duck, calm and cool on the surface, but paddling like heck underneath."
