Got up this morning at 4:00am to do a VM tools and virtual hardware upgrade, being the only available outage window. I logged into gmail while I was waiting for the VPN to connect, and surprise, I got an email from John Troyer congratulating me on being awarded the vExpert 2011 award! I don’t think I’ve ever been happier at 4:05 in the morning. Thanks to John and VMware, I’m really excited to be a part of this program. Congratulations to all of the other 2011 vExperts, I’m in good company.
