Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012

Just loving Windows Server 2012 and the updated version of Hyper-V – it’s fast and furious on modern hardware.

The updated Linux support is great too – multiple v-procs – and great aware drivers for SUSE Linux.



Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

There’s a lot to be said about ease of use – especially when it comes to extensive customisation.

I’ve spent the weekend installing and building the “back office” for Grania’s business using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 – and it’s been pleasantly rewarding. No code, no SQL, no UI hacking – and I’ve got a really solid, supportable CRM for her Music Together business fully working.

The best part is that the customisation is fully portable – and can be moved up to Dynamics CRM Online. That’s powerful.
