Having been away for a few days, I came back to the news that my MVP status continues into the 2006/2007 award year. I've now had the award from mid-summer 1998, so that's over 8 years.
Question: What is the Microsoft MVP award?
Answer: The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is an annual award that is given to outstanding members of Microsoft's peer-to-peer communities, and is based on the past year's contributions those members make in those communities online and offline.
You can find more details about the award on the Microsoft MVP site at http://mvp.support.microsoft.com.
In the United Kingdom, there are two of us for Microsoft Money - myself (Glyn Simpson) and Bob Peel. Both of us have the same length of award.
