ACEs are Wild


They must be if they've included me.

Today I found out that I had been nominated and accepted into the Oracle ACE Program.
I believe my first exposure to the program was through Lewis Cunningham, a bit over 4 years ago. I then began to notice it in the OTN forums...you know, that little ACE next to a person's name?

I wanted one.

I won't say it's the only reason I blog or participate, I still believe that's just my personality.

But I am truly grateful for the award. (Yes, it's already on my resume).

Congratulations. What does ACE stand for? I was sure it was Always Contributes Errors, but maybe I'm wrong on that :P

Always Contributes Errors? I like it. Always coming after me aren't you? :)

Thank you all!

I didn't want to completely obfuscate the fine work you've done. Obviously (to you and other ApEx people) that was taken from the forums. I purposely made it opaque so that you could see your name. :)

Well done.

Congratulations! Does this mean you are going to send out iron-on aces for all the shirts? :-)

Thanks Dom.

@joel

That's a good idea! Maybe a sleeve patch or something? Maybe a red vest too? ;)
