Great News: Chandoo becomes MVP



excel-mvp-phdI have received 2009 Microsoft MVP Award.

The award is presented for Excel community contributions made in the past and includes a complimentary subscription to MSDN (and or Technet). It is a great feeling to know about this.

I am very thankful to this site and all the things I could learn and share through it. Special thanks to the anonymous MVP for nominating my name.
