Office Front End for Dynamics?
Mary Jo Foley continues to find news on the Microsoft Dynamics front. I think I need to add a link to her blog on the main page.

The formula for daylight savings time is hardcoded into Windows XP and now it has to be changed or lots of things including your appointments, scheduled systems jobs and even your…

DynamicAccounting.net - A Dynamic 2006
It's been a good year for DynamicAccounting.net.
- We've more than doubled our registered users in the last 4 months of the year. We now have members in 29 countries, with about a third of our members from outside the U.S.
- By year end, users will have downloaded more than 2,000 of our Dynamic Sherpa videos. It's not Napoleon Dynamite Dance Scene numbers, but this is accounting software, so I'm thrilled with 2,000 downloads in about 5 months. Who knew a video on ODBC connections for GP would be the…

If you ever get a chance to go to a Microsoft CFO Roundtable event -- GO!. Yesterday's event was with Craig Bruya, Microsoft Business Solutions' CFO. It was 5 of us and Craig for 2 and 1/2 hours.

Burgum out, Nadella In
Via Mary Jo Foley at Microsoft Watch , Microsoft has concluded their search to replace Doug Burgum as the head of MBS (is it still technically MBS?) and selected Satya Nadella, currently the corporate VP of MBS.
This isn't a huge surprise given how long they've been looking…
DynamicAccounting.net is one year old today. It's come a long way in a year. There's a boat load of tips in the Weekly Dynamics area, a fair number of downloads and we're now up to six videos in our Dynamic Sherpa series of 5 minute training videos. We have registered users in 18 countries on 6 of the 7 continents.
We've also had some bumps in the road. At one point I tried to do too much with the tips and couldn't keep up. There's also been a few server issues along the way but those seemed to be ironed out for now.
So what's coming in year 2? Now that the Videocasts and Weekly Dynamics…
