Got my Microsoft MVP Award again for the 5th year!

I just got my MVP Award e-mail in the area of Exchange for the 5th year.
It is an honor to be selected as a Microsoft MVP since there are only around ~30 or so Exchange MVP in the US and ~120 worldwide.  In order to become an MVP you must be nominated by others in the technical community you work with, Microsoft employees, or other MVPs. Each year a panel of Microsoft employees reviews the contributions of each nominee for quality, quantity, and level of impact on the technical community.
So basically you have to write articles, blog post, or otherwise contribute to the technical community and be recognized for your work.
In order to keep your MVP status each year you must continue to contribute to the community.  This year I was so busy with my job at Mimosa Systems, that I haven’t had time to contribute as much as I normally do.
In general I felt I did not have enough time to do the things I wanted.  So next year I’m 1) Getting a new job (already turned in 2 weeks notice and have a couple of contract deals already) 2) Getting a place in the mountains closer to the stuff I love to do.  Big post on this area coming later…
Here’s what I did in 2009:
