Obviously not. You are automatically notified in real time when something new happened. Getting back to an intranet portal scenario, why it couldn’t be the… READ MORE
As blogger it fancies me when people react on the post with comments. But the first thing you do with your post is placing it on a social platform like twitter. Instead of reacting on the blog itself, readers mostly react via twitter. Wouldn’t it be cool to have those twitter comments at your blog post?

Hi, I’m going to show you easily can export “any” SQL Server database from Microsoft Azure to an On-Premises platform.

Few weeks ago I and Hilton Giesenow prepared togheter a SharePoint & Azure session for the TechEd Africa and the European SharePoint conference. During the preparation we discovered an issue running the Azure Compute Emulator on a SharePoint box (Azure SDK 1.5 and 1.6). First it seemed that the user profile service screwed up after you had started the emulator for the first time, but further investigations had shown that many service applications didn’t work properly anymore. The problem was, that the emulator sets the IIS anonymous user account to the application pool’s identity. Many thanks to Wictor Wilen for telling us which IIS setting has been affected ( we owe you a pint=>summit 2011 🙂
