  1. Top 10 ways to know that you have what it takes to become an MVP:

    10. You have a major collection of all the AOL CD's that you get in the mail

    8. You get excited and out of breath whenever Microsoft releases a new KB
    article

    .....

  2. Hey Kev - you missed a few . . .

    A) < 100 (non-spam) emails in a given day is considered 'light traffic'

    B) Not only are you able to IM, E-mail, talk on the phone & post to
    newsgroups simultaneously, but doing so is standard operating procedure . .
    ..

    C) You look forward to the opportunity to reload your test servers (or do a
    disaster recovery)

    D) Christmas comes with each MSDN / Action Pack / TechNet update

    E) YCST is an appropriate answer to any technical question . . . ;^)

  5. This seems to be one of the better kept private jokes among SBS MVPs for
    which I can now look forward to more public ridicule. I'm a closet scripter,
    but I've just been outed. Maybe some of the longterm groupies remember my
    work on the original SBS 4.x version customized logon script document? Well,
    I stopped documenting most of my scripting activities when I decided that I
    was becoming to dangerous with what I was interested in scripting with ADSI,
    LDAP, WMI and registry information.

  8. I'm going to nominate a new item to the list:

    You find yourself repeatedly telling people "Patch, patch now, good grief
    people.....you have got to go patch right this very minute as if every fiber
    of your soul were driving you to this. Do not turn away from this moment,
    you must go patch!!!!"

    Just then, the lady next to you asks if you wouldn't mind stepping back, she
    can't reach to the frozen pot pies she likes.

    Okay, so maybe one shouldn't try to be an MVP while in the grocery frozen
    foods section.
