    Hi Jeff
    I need some information.
    I am starting to blog through my WordPress account. How can I link this to Microsoft Forums (CRM, CRM Development etc).

  4. karansharma says:

    But on the Forum’s user profile. I see various categories like Forums, blogs, Technet Wiki.
    Information for forums is updated by ratings and point scored in forums. How is the information for blogs updated

    Here is link to my profile.
    How are points and blog count updated on forums user profile

      Points are only given for blogs hosted on MSDN and TechNet which means that they are only awarded to Microsoft Employees as they are the only people allowed to create blogs on MSDN and TechNet.

    Any tips on making SQL 2008 R2 co-exist nicely on same DEV laptop w/ 2012. Please email me. Is there any specific order? 2012 first, 2008 R2 second, etc…

  6. Mr. Wharty's Ramblings says:

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes 2008 and 2012 can be installed side-by-side and there’s no specific order in which you need to install them. I have both these installed on my laptop and haven’t had any issues.
