# Woo, MVP again

70 views

Well, I was re-nominated for the Microsoft MVP award this year. This year, I can arrange for up to 4 letters to be sent out saying how awesome I am. This letter is so cheesy, I've requested a copy for myself. Linky.
I particularly like the "share our excitement with you" and "joins a stellar group of individuals from around the world" parts [smile]

I wanna know what the cool gift thing is going to be, it was an MP3 player last year. Also, I get a voucher for the Microsoft Company Store. So I'll be getting a copy of XP pro or two as well. I realised yesterday that the hard drive in my laptop is only a 40GB, so I could put my 60GB drive in it instead, and put XP pro on it. ALthough I don't know if there's much point. I'll have a look around the MS company store later.

Anyway, I'm off out to get drunk to celebrate. I was going to do that anyway, but now I have an excuse.

Not that I expected to hear otherwise, but congrats [smile]

Those were available last year as well. The only people I could've sent mine to were my IBM employers - I somehow doubt IBM management would approve of someone being associated with one of their bigger rivals [lol]

Laptop bag thingy I think. I get the impression it changes on each calendar year, so you'll get whatever the Jan/Apr awardees get.

Save up some money for the MVP Summit next March - you can buy lots more copies of XP/Vista there. I dunno about the online form, but in the shop XP-Home was selling for $15 and XP-Pro for$25 [oh]

You're a man of "cool"... I respect you.

Woo, well done!

The ladies love me already. I had to fight them off me tonight. Although that might have something to do with the Rahipnol.

I've said too much...
