Holy crap it's July, and holy crap 2009 is half-over. Holy crap!!

MVP Time

The latest batch of DirectX/XNA MVPs have been announced by Microsoft and a new addition this year from the GDNet community is moderator/contributor and SlimDX developer Promit Roy. Congrats Promit! That's like, the fourth time I've congratulated him today, so it's probably wearing a bit thin by now, haha. There's twitter, Facebook, over IM... But hey, he earned it.

We have a number of DirectX/XNA MVPs here on the GDNet forums. Many of them you will recognize with a tag next to their username that denotes them as such. Several though don't have that because the tag is superseded by a Staff or Moderator tag. We'll be solving that in V5, of course. Here are the MVPs you'll see around the forums:

Richard "superpig" Fine
Jon "hplus0603" Watte
Wolfgang "wolf" Engel
Steve "Evil Steve" Macpherson
Jim "Machaira" Perry
Pieter "Armadon" Germishuys
Ralf "Demirug" Kornmann
John "Krisc" Sedlak
Richard "legalize" Thomson
Nick "NickGravelyn" Gravelyn
Gilad "sirob" Eisenberger
Jack "jollyjeffers" Hoxley
Andy "thezbuffer" Dunn
Matt "MJP" Pettineo

Wow, quite the list eh?
