I just cannot believe it. When about a week ago all my fellows bloggers had received their vExpert awards, I thought to myself that I just was not chosen because I do not have enough technical knowledge about VMware, or I'm not posting every day, or just because that there is many more people knowing much more about VMware technology and there is a limited number of vExpert awards available.
Then this morning I received an e-mail from John Troyer – VMware vExpert Program Manager saying that
A week ago I sent you an email informing you that you’d received a VMware vExpert Award for your significant contributions to the VMware and virtualization community in 2008. I’ve included that email below. More information on the vExpert Awards is available at: https://www.vmware.com/communities/vexpert/ and https://blogs.vmware.com/vmtn/2009/02/vmware-vexpert-awards.html
Unfortunately, I used a subject line that got trapped in a lot of spam filters! If that happened to you, I do apologize (and offer you belated congratulations!). I also know many people were in transit last week because of VMworld Europe. In any case, a lot of vExperts have already arrived at the vExpert Community and are waiting for you to join them!
I’m writing you because I haven’t received your verified information via the form at https://www.vmware.com/communities/vexpert/verify.html. I need to verify your address so we can send you an award packet, and we need to verify your username so we can let you into the private vExpert Community. Further news and information will be given only through the community, so please fill out the form.
I will email you another reminder if we don’t see you there. However, if you do not wish to receive further communication about the VMware vExpert Award, please email [email protected]
Regards and congratulations!
Well, that exactly what happened to the e-mail…. So I went to see my spambox and I saw the e-mail inside… Just incredible…
