A little over 11 years ago, a developer on the JET team made an infamous checkin, to create a reg key controlling some obscure perf counters, named "Squeaky Lobster". The name was a reference to a girl he had a crush on at the time who donated a squeaky lobster to the annual Microsoft Giving Campaign charity auction. He thought it was a funny thing to donate to a giving campaign and gee whilikers, he had a checkin to make that day that surely nobody else would ever see, so why not?, writes Exchange team.

Unfortunately this auction is only available inside Microsoft, but for those of you who do work here we encourage you to please bid on this (priceless, really) piece of Exchange history and continue the noble tradition of never letting Andrew forget: http://auction/AuctionDetail.aspx?id=1514
