The real reason Craig Boyd is an MVP

I have been reading several blog posts sending crongratulations to Craig Boyd on becoming a Microsoft MVP (definitely well deserved). It seems obvious to most of us how Craig became an MVP since he has been creating examples and posting blog entries as if there were three or four of him cloned and working hard in his office in Minnesota.

That is not the full story. Head over to Tek-Tips and read any of the thousands of posts he has made over the years. His posts are some of the best forum post reading you can find. This is where I first met Craig and where I was initially impressed by his willingness to share his knowledge with the Fox Community.

To add to Rick's post:

If you're searching the Tek-Tip forums for Craig's posts, also search on his alter-ego "SlightHaze = .Null.". I believe SlightHaze's posts are from Craig as well.

For those of you who aren't familar with, this is a free, non-spamming collection of technical forums. Tek-Tips hosts 5 VFP forums. Also check out the FAQ sections of each VFP forum where you will find some wonderful code contributions from Craig and others. Highly recommended.

Thanks Rick and Malcolm. I get a lot of "Where did this guy come from?" these days, so it's always nice when someone knows about my contributions on Tek-Tips.

Malcolm is correct, SlightHaze = .Null. was the way I used to sign my code and the original handle/sig I used over on Tek-Tips (and elsewhere). After some gentle prodding by Mike Lewis, Tamar Granor and Barbara Peisch I changed it to my actual name.

It's been extremely nice being recognized by my peers like this. Definitely a fun ride. However, the best is yet to come. I look forward to all of us blowing doors off with Visual FoxPro for a long time to come.
