Where does it say that Markio Calasan works for Microsoft?

What it says is:

Macedonia's Marko Calasan got his first professional credential at age
6, when he passed the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator exam.
Now 9, he just went for the follow-on systems engineer certification.

IOW - Marry "The Troll" Hanna

trolled yet again:

The real story:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle5531687.ece

From Times Online
January 16, 2009

Marko Casalan, 8, is officially world's youngest IT whizz

While the other elementary school pupils skim through their comics in
the break between classes, Marko Calasan takes out his copy of
Implementing and Administering Security in a Microsoft Windows Server
Network for a light read.

At the age of 8, Marko has become the world’s youngest certified
computer system administrator and was deemed the Mozart of Computers
by the press after passing exams for IT professionals with the
computer giant Microsoft.

In theory, he could now get a job maintaining complex office computer
networks, even though he has not yet completed the third grade in his
native town Skopje, in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

“The Microsoft officials gave me computer games and DVDs with cartoons
when I passed the exams because I am a child. That was nice, but I’m
not really interested in those things,” young Marko told The Times.

“I’d like to be a computer scientist when I grow up and create a new
operational system.”

Marko learnt to read and write at the age of 2 and started working on
computers immediately. The news of his extraordinary achievement
turned him into a local celebrity and he has even had an audience with
the Macedonian Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski, who presented him with
an IT lab with 15 computers to practise on.

His parents, who are IT experts and run a computer school for
children, are considering sending Marko abroad to a specialised
institute of learning for gifted children, as none exists in
Macedonia.

“Marko displayed exceptional learning abilities at a very early age.
He was able to replicate a computer operation after only reading about
it on the internet. Now we ask him for help when we have some IT
related problem at work,” Marko’s mother, Radica Calasan, 38, told The
Times.

She and her husband Milan, 37, are planning to publish a book on
computer education for small children based on Marko’s development,
which, they believe, could at least in part be replicated by other
children of his age.

“He is obviously extraordinary gifted, but children above the age of 6
could learn much more about computers than generally assumed,” Mrs
Calasan said.

At school, Marko’s favourite subject is maths, and in his spare time
he browses internet forums for IT professionals and participates in
debates about complex computer engineering problems.

Apart from his unlikely hobby of training Thai boxing, he has got a
keen interest in physics and astronomy and was unable to sleep because
of excitement on the night before the much-feared experiment aimed to
recreate Big Bang conditions at the underground facility of the
European Organisation for Nuclear Research or CERN in Switzerland.

The experiment failed because of technical problems, but Marko is
confident that it will eventually prove to be a scientific
breakthrough. “The media said it could cause the end of the world,” he
said, “but there was never any danger of that.”

Agreed, that's why he's in my killfile.

As you took the lure three times (even hunting down another article to
rebutt him) he's either a good troll or .....

Does anyone smell fish?

OK - I'll admit that I've taken the bait. But I've avoided the
hooker ...

You do not need to be a MS employee to sit their certification exams.

Anyway he is heading for dead end career prospects - MS is starting to
go the way of IBM.
