Moving on...

Hi All,

I would like to post a quick note here to let everyone know that I am moving this blog to Windows Live Space. The reason for this move is because some users from China can't access this Google blog. In addition, I am combining the English and Chinese Blog together so I can manage the blog posts in a single location.

The new blog URL is:

Also I gave up my CRM MVP status and joined Microsoft as a Senior Consultant focus on CRM and CCA. I'll start blogging again soon.

IE Tips: Enable Setting IE Home Page

Recently I got a new Lenovo T400 laptop from work to replace my outdated IBM T60.  I got it back from IT support, they locked my IE home page to an internal site through group policy.  Since I travel quite a bit and not in the office, it takes me 5 to 10 seconds every time that I open a failure page in IE because it tries to load that internal site. It was very annoying for me.

I Bing, I found a way through registry that I can re-enable setting IE home page again.  I like to blog it for my future reference and for anyone who has this problem.

So to re-enable setting IE home page again, here are the steps:

  1. Start | Run | Type regedit.
  2. Navigate to this registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel.
  3. Right click on HomePage, select Modify.
  4. Change the value from 1 to 0, then click OK button.
  5. Restart Internet Explorer.

After you updated the registry, you should able to change your Home Page in your Internet Explorer.

Baby Allen Liu

This is my CRM blog and I preferred to put things related to CRM in this blog.  However I like to share my joy with the CRM community that my wife gave birth to a baby boy last month.  We named him Allen.  I have been pretty busy helping my wife out with this little kid and trying to get some sleep at night. :)  Now you know why that I didn’t blog much recently. :P
