Semi-Finalist Codemaster Challenge

Nico Vuyge

I'm proud to announce that I won a semi-finalist prize in Microsoft's Windows Vista Code Master Challenge. I don't know if Microsoft is ever going to update the winners page with the full name of the winners, but the 'Nico V.' from Belgium, that's me.

My entry for this contest was Blogoholic, a WPF blog reader for people who read hundreds of blogs a day.
