Third time's the charm
I just got a nice letter from Microsoft letting me know I got awarded as MVP for the 3rd year in a row. I feel really good about last year and all the stuff I did for the community. I'll try to do as much this year again. I love meeting new people and helping them network or solve their problem (If I can ;-)). Looking forward to talking (virtually) to some of you tomorrow in the Webcast, this autumn at the code camp and devteach and throughout next year. Thanks Microsoft for the 3rd vote of confidence. ......

Brian Harry a technical fellow
Well I can't pass on this news. Knowing Brian a bit by talking with him and having great discussions with him in the last 4 years, he is probably trying to keep this as low profile as possible ;-). Willy already blog it here, and Anutthara broke the news. Brian, let me tell you that as humble as you are, you TOTALLY deserve this well earned title. Check out Anutthara's blog entry for and explanation of what a technical fellow is. Congratulation Brian and keep up the great work on TFS. Cheers, ET ......
