Not going to Redmond :(

Last week I got an email from Microsoft inviting me to a meeting in Redmond (same as Rob), apparently due to the fact that I was 'high performing beta examinee'. Rob make the cut, but unfortunately I missed out :(. I thought I responded fairly quickly, but I would not have been suprised if there were only a limited number of overseas people that MS were prepared to fly in.

I held off on blogging on this until now, as I did not want to “jinx” myself - I was half expecting to get a “sorry, but this offer is for US residents only” type of response. 

I am happy that Rob is getting the opportunity to go. If anyone deserves this, it is Rob, I have only sat 3 beta exams from the last SQL 2005 and .Net 2.0 batch. I think Rob must have nearly sat every single one! Atleast I have the consolation that I was a “high performer“ in the last exam I did.

So Congratulations Rob - have a great trip!
