New updates for software on Vista

For a couple of weeks i haven't been reading the regular blogs i go and read including the MSDN blogs. So yesterday got some time to go through and saw that three Vista related softwares i was looking forward to was released:
The first one is the service pack 2 for SQL Server. This sorts out some issues you get when you run SQL Server 2005 on Vista. This includes the issue i faced where i couldn't connect to the database server without disabling UAC.
The second one is the powershell for Vista is released. I was looking forward to this to try out some functionalities of powershell. There is an issue in the installer so do read through the comments on the link above and follow the steps when you install powershell on vista.
The third one is Virtual PC 2007, which supports Vista as the host and the guest operating system.

Using Google domains

Last weekend migrated my personal e-mail accounts and two of the domains i had under my name to be hosted at google domains. The experience was ok but had some issues when i tried to set up blogger to use my custom domain. Seems like people having .info domains have some issues setting up blogger to use their custom domain and i am having the same issue with my .ws domain. The e-mail hosting works perfectly, but had some issues with the google page creator in doing tasks such as setting home page and so on.
