Community Credit Hall of Fame
I've blogged in the past about Community Credit and really love the site. As a 5 time Community Credit winner, I just received the email today (although I actually knew about it over the weekend) that I have been inducted into the Community Credit Hall of Fame for 2008. There are a total of 17 inductees, all of whom have contributed a great deal to the development community. Thanks David for all of the hard work keeping Community Credit running smoothly so we all have a place to share with the community ......

Community Credit Winner for December
I have talked about Community Credit before, and have been very impressed with the direction the site is heading. I was just notified that I won 4th place out of 7,721 members. This makes the fifth time I have won a monthly competition. The prize this time around is the T-bot Pen Drive. I'm not at all sure what to make of this one. It's a 1GB USB drive, but has beads and springs for appendages and a dust cover for a head. It's definitely a thumb drive with personality, but it's also one of the strangest ......

Community Credit Winner for September
Well, I am now a 4-time Community Credit winner! I first won in February, and then again in April and June. This time around, I took 7th place out of 7,395 members. The prize this time is pretty cool, as well...although not as cool as the laser pointer I won last time. It certainly brings back memories of simpler times, when game consoles first starting appearing in the consumer market. Of course, I'm talking about Atari and Pong. The most amazing thing about these key chains is that they contain ......

Community Credit Winner for June
I am pleased to announce that I just won 4th place for the June 2007 Community Credit competition. This is 4th place out of a total of 7214 members. The even more amazing thing, at least to me, is that I managed to win 4th place with an 85% curve on my points as part of the handicapping system. The worst is that now I have an even higher handicap to beat. So, what did I win? An awesome green laser pointer, which is about 50 times brighter than a red laser pointer. It uses Diode Pumped Solid State ......

Community Credit Winner for April
I was just awarded 5th prize for April 2007. This goes along with the 16th place prize I won back in February. “ This shirt may be, according to various scientific research councils we paid off, the World's Most Clever Shirt ever. It's quite possibly the World's Most Clever Shirt Ever. EVAR! That's like forever, without the for part. ” The great thing about it is that I get some cool prizes for doing what I normally do every day. The even better thing is that I was able to get 5th place out of just ......

Microsoft Silverlight
Microsoft officially announced Microsoft Silverlight, a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media rich experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. In other words, Silverlight is the official release name for WPF/E. For those of you who are wondering where Microsoft came up with the name Silverlight, it is named after David Silverlight. David is the creator of XML Pitstop and Community Credit. He is also a central figure in and ......

Community Credit February Prize Winner
Don't let anyone tell you it doesn't happen. I was just awarded 16th place for February on Community Credit. I know, 16th place doesn't sound like a big deal, but keep in mind that it is 16th out of 6950 (I think that was the number of members when they calculated the prizes, if not it is pretty close) and all I had to do is what I normally do anyway: blog and answer/post forum questions ......

Community Credit
A while ago I posted a entry about Community Credit. I don't remember what the membership count was when I joined, but it's almost at 7000 members now! I don't know if there is an official record of the most number of new users in a day, but it would be cool if the site could it the 7000 mark by the end of March 1st. The nice thing about the site is that it serves as a central "clearing house" for all of your tech related accomplishments, such as blog posts, comments, discussion board posts, articles, ......

Community Credit
As I was browsing around the Subtext web site, I came across the Community Credit website. This is a pretty interesting site, where the primary goal is "stupid prizes for smart people". From the website, the goal is reward fellow IT Professionals who have contributed toward the development community. Currently, the rewards for these contributions are simply the satisfaction of helping colleagues in the development community. Now, they can be rewarded by recieving not only geeky gifts like a ......
