Thank You, Microsoft!

It just arrived in my inbox: my tenth MVP award. It’s been a whole decade – unbelievable, I feel old now. In spite of my frequent biting criticism, Microsoft has decided to re-award me. I appreciate that very much and I’m glad I’m still able to make a recognizable contribution to the community. I like Microsoft technology, especially from the programmer’s point of view, and I’ve had a chance over the years to get to know many of the brilliant people who work for Microsoft and keep that technology alive. Thank you! And here’s a shout-out to Ian Cooper, who suggested me for my first award back in 2006!

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.

Please use the links in the page footer to get in touch with me. I'm available for conversations on Keybase, Matrix, Mastodon or Twitter, as well as via email.
