Wow, another gift I got from Microsoft today:
Dear Michael Schwarz ,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2008 Microsoft® MVP Award! The MVP Award is our way of saying thank you for promoting the spirit of community and enhancing people’s lives and the industry’s success every day. Your extraordinary efforts in Visual Developer - ASP/ASP.NET  technical communities during the past year are greatly appreciated.
This is the third time that I received the MVP award from Microsoft, now. I'm very excited about it!
I would like to say Thank you! to all my blog readers as well to all developers and companies I was in contact last year. Looking for a great year with lots of new great products and technologies from Microsoft.
