Got re-rewarded with my MVP - that's 10 years then, is it really that long!

Just received my email...

Dear Tony Rogerson,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2009 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others.

That's 10 years as a SQL Server MVP, I first received the award in 1998 when there where only about 2 dozen SQL Server MVP's in the world with most of them in the picture below; has it really been that long? Check out Gianluca's site -> http://www.ghotz.com/mvppht-it.shtml, I had more hair then :)

Congrats Tony.  You were a SQL MVP before I'd even picked up my first SQL 6.5 book.  Respect!

The scary thing James is that 10 years has ellapsed - where's the time gone! See you at the London user group event, we should do a beer!
