So, what wasn't in that thread that I can put here... hmm, not sure [smile]
The first part was actually quite funny, I was on a Java programming course at work - useful but mostly boring stuff about things I'll never use. So I load up GDNet on my laptop and pretend to take course notes ([rolleyes]), but see the "1 New Private Message" thing bouncing around in the corner.
Turns out the PM was the official "Congratulations on your MVP award nomination" message. Stupid me had just taken a mouthful of coffee prior to this, almost choked on it - I was quite genuinely surprised to see that message.
Of course, the other 12 people in the room looked round at me thinking that I'd choked on my coffee because of something the lecturer had said [headshake]
That was on the 12th May. I think I was smiling for at least a few days -> [smile]
Some communication goes back-and-forth as a result, and it seems that I had to wait about 6 weeks to find out the verdict.
Given that I was quite surprised to receive a nomination (To me it was like the equivalent of being an "Oscar Nominee") I was pretty sure the result could go either way - especially if you look at the amazing stuff the other DirectX MVP's do (or have done!)...
I mentioned it in my reply to that lounge thread, but I wouldn't of gotten the award if someone hadn't taken the time to nominate me. Many thanks to that person [grin]
Anyway, thats all for now - I'm pretty tired and I have a busy day tomorrow. I've got some more progress/updates on my programmable pipeline adventure that I'll try and get released tomorrow
