www.live.com: Sharing my CRM page

As you all might know I am a great fan of www.live.com and it has been my start page for a long time. A new option is to share your "tabs' with others. So after seeing this new feature and testing it I started cleaning out my "CRM blog collection". Cleaning out you might think....?

Well we have a really great CRM blogging community, but sadly enough I must admit that a lot of the CRM bloggers stopped blogging so they left me no choice other than removing them from my CRM tab. I hope by reading this post fellow bloggers will update their bookmarks and update the links on their blogs.

A long time ago I created a CRM tab on my www.live.com start page and right now I am able to share this with you. Do you think you need to be on my list? Leave me a comment with your name and blog location and I will add you. My only requirement to be on my CRM list is that you regularly blog about Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I hope I can expand my current list and I will try to share my list as often as possible.

  1. Great site! Just wondering why all of the article url’s to my site are pointing to http://www.live.com/undefined? Does live.com not support atom feeds?

    I assume you are stunware 🙂 I was wondering the exact same thing when i saw your website. live.com supports Atom feeds, but it seems your site doesn’t work..

  3. Yes I’m stunnware 🙂 – I thought that I have implemented the ATOM 1.0 specs correctly and according to http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.stunnware.com%2Fcrm2%2Fatom.aspx I did. Will have to check what’s wrong.

    That would be cool! You site is a good resource…

    Names, I want names. Which bloggers didn’t follow through and quit. ;o)

    I heard somewhere that over 90% of blogs that are started die off into nothingness, the great silence, some of them with the last post from years ago.


  6. mennotk says:

    JaAG, you are right about that. To much names to mention and there is no use to name them all. I would love to get new names added on my list though. Active CRM bloggers that are here to stay!

  7. I tend to say that the problem is on Microsoft’s side. Opening my feed (http://www.stunnware.com/crm2/atom.aspx) in Firefox and Opera gives the following XML:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>

    <feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom&quot;>”>http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom&quot;>

      <title>stunnware’s CRM corner</title>

    In IE7 it surprisingly shows:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom&quot; xmlns:cf="http://www.microsoft.com/schemas/rss/core/2005"><channel xmlns:cfi="http://www.microsoft.com/schemas/rss/core/2005/internal&quot; cfi:lastdownloaderror="None"><title cf:type="text">stunnware’s CRM corner</title><atom:link href="http://www.stunnware.com/crm2/atom.aspx" rel="self"/>

    What is IE7 doing here? It adds rss tags to my xml structure and as I’m generating the document in code I’m more than convinced that there’s no rss-related element in there. I’m further looking into it, but inserting things into a file is weird.

    Michael, if I add this Atom feed http://navintmicrosoftcrm.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default than it works without any problem…I am curious on what you will find.

  9. Hi Menno,

    Here’s a new blog for your CRM tab 🙂 including a new post on automatic deployment of crm.

    I have just recently started blogging about CRM among other things such as SQL Server, .NET, Siebel and Mini-ITX among other things.

    I do not have any experience with MS CRM 3.0 as of yet as I am currently a freelance Siebel consultant in North America and Europe specialising in EAI.

    However, I do have a "proper" programming background in VB and COBOL and I currently do quite a bit of .NET stuff on the side. I have also played around with the CRM 1.1 from MSDN a couple of years ago so I have a little familiarity with the product.

    MS CRM 3.0 is an area that I am interested in moving into professionally once I get bored of Siebel!

    If you would like to add me to your list, I would be very grateful. Please also check out my Orders of Battle website at http://www.ordersofbattle.com.



  11. Menno,

    It’s working now. The reason why it did not before was a missing <link rel="self" …> tag in the articles. It is not required, but after adding it, live.com is happy.

  12. Reg DC says:

    I forgot to add to the text of the message; my blog site is at http://www.tech-crm.com.

    I have added your blog to my blogroll.



  13. mennotk says:

    Michael, cool that you found the "problem". Are you going to Convergence by any chance?

  14. mennotk says:

    Reg, thanks for adding me and I am adding you 🙂

  15. mennotk says:

    Merijn, you are added as well…just keep blogging 🙂

  16. I’m not going to convergence. Instead I’m attending the MVP Summit. I’m flying to Seattle tomorrow and return on March 16th.

  17. Hi,

    I blog a few times a week about Microsoft CRM and SharePoint. Please add my blog if you find it useful.

    Kind regards,

    Gustaf Westerlund


  18. I guess Todd reads my blog. I recently posted my CRM tab for http://www.live.com In this tab I listed the most
