Today I received some VERY good news. I was awarded the Microsoft MVP award. I knew it was something special, but not how special until I read the post below. If you do the math I am now only one of 0.004% of the IT community! I was nominated by Stephen Rose the community manager for the Windows group and lead of the Springboard team. Thanks so much Stephen! I am happy with my contributions to the community and wish I could do even more, but with family commitments and the need to sleep occasionally, you always just try to do your best. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you guys! Thanks for reading and the continued support!
