Oracle ACE Director

This was a dream that I didn’t dare dreaming. I got a confirmation from Oracle ACE program that I’m that they did accept my nomination for elevating my ACE status to the next level as ACE Director.

My older smarter brother from completely different set of parents, Cameron Lackpour offered that he file my nomination for ACE Director level.

I was way too excited about that. I was in tears (of joy of course) reading through what he and other 6 people wrote about me. (even though I feel that Cameron had that brotherly affection and overstated some facts)

What I told him was “I’ll be slightly disappointed if I don’t make it, however this (nomination form) is the biggest recognition that I can ever get in my life.” I even went on saying that I might frame that form. (I’ll seriously do that :))

I would like to thank everyone who supported me, who believed in me. (I know it is just two words, but there are a lot of feelings behind that words which I cannot express right now)

I would also like to thank Oracle ACE Program for awarding the status to me.

Hyemi Han thank you for helping me start this journey, if it was not for you I would have never sent my ACE nomination (in August 2013, ok so now you all know whom to blame ;))

I would like to thank you gentle reader for following me, my blog posts. It’s you who is giving me ideas and the energy to go forward.

Last but not the least my family.

– My lovely, beautiful wife, I wouldn’t have achieved all this without your support and help. Thank you for listening to all my Hyperion talk and for all the inputs and ideas on the appearance of the tools that I create.

I was excited to hear the news about the promotion to the next level, however I was surprised to see her excitement. Boy!!!! I’ve never seen her this excited (not even on our wedding day, I think she was scared on that day ;))

– My Kids, Thank you kiddos for understanding this grumpy father 😉 (I’m when I’m working on something).

I want to thank my family for letting me do what I do. (They know when I’ve something in my mind :))
