Congratulations Fatal_Exception on getting the second ever Sage Certification in the Microsoft Network topic area on the 8th April 2006!

We're glad to have you with us, your depth of knowledge and experience has a huge amount to offer the community.  This tends to be a topic area where discussion is encouraged to the benefit of everyone's brain cells and I like the fact that you can go back through FE's answered questions and find lots of "can you give me an example of why you do it this way instead of that way" from other Experts with some great reasoning coming back our way from FE.  It ends up being a learning experience for everyone and lets be frank, the points are nice but taking away something that can help you out in the real world is worth a hell of a lot more (that's my 2 cents anyway).

Since he joined in 2003, FE has accrued 2 Sage, 2 Wizard, 1 Guru and 2 Master certifications and been selected as an MVP along the way.  He's a member of a still very select club of 2 million+ pointers at EE and is ranked at 34 in the EE Hall of Fame.  Glad to have him with us :)

Members/Experts: Please feel free to use this question as a spot to pass on your own Congratulations.

Great Work!

    Said it before but will say it again, you have been one of my biggest influences and indirect overseas "mentor" in the last few months and your depth of knowledge has constantly astounded and stoped me in my tracks!

    Thankyou William, for your time and effort and for the advances that you have allowed me to make in my knowledge and in my career due to your contributions and wisdom

    it's always a pleasure to see you join in on a question because I know it will get resolved, and properly too.  You have such a good, patient attitude.  From working with you, I know that you are out to help the questioner and not simply to rack up points.  You are the epitome of proving that if you are kind and knowledgable, the points will come.

    Its also easy to see why PeteLong recommended you for MVP and why you've had so much success @ EE and elsewhere helping people with their technology problems.  You're one of those people who seem to instinctively understand technology and have a passion for it, and that's rare.

    Congratulations FE.  Nobody deserves it more.
