As of yesterday, the RES Community Forum at RES Software’s website has moved to the RES Software User Group Forum. Ofcourse, all posts made by RES Software’s community members will still be accessible using the previously mentioned URL, although the forum itself has been archived.
Thanks to RES Software for this enormous gesture towards an active RES Software User Group which will hopefully bring big value to the community!

Hello fellow Guru’s. It is a pleasure to announce the creation of a LinkedIn group for RESguru.com. This is a way for you to signify your affiliation and/or support for RESguru.com. If you like RESguru.com, please feel free to join the group here.
On another note, we’ve nuked the KB archive link on the top menu of the blog and put in a direct link to the RESguru Forum. With a whopping total of two cached articles, the KB archive wasn’t really going anywhere and some of you asked for a better Forum link on top instead – well you got it! :)
Things will start to take off shortly again… Give it a week or so and we’ll be back – better than ever!

First of all, what’s a grAvatar, and why the heck would I want one, you might ask. Second, if I decide to agree with that, how do I get one? And what does this have to do with RESguru in the first place? All valid questions, which is we will have a look at here.
An Avatar in general is just a way of enhancing your appearance if you comment on blogs, such as this swell one. Out of the box, WordPress (on which RESguru.com is built) will automagically generate an auto-avatar (the icon which is next to your screen name) The auto-avatar, as seeen on the right, is calculated from your screen name, hence it will be unique to you, but you’d proably prefer something else to look at.
The idea with a grAvatar (Globally Recognized Avatar), is to create an Avatar which will work across many blogs where you might decide to leave your comments. So in short, it’s just a little global eye candy, which will spiff up your postings here. That’s all.
To get one, all you have to do is to sign up for free at www.gravatar.com All you have to do is to use the same email address which you supplied to RESguru.com when registering. Chose some snazzy logo and you’re done. In a mater of minutes, your newly created grAvatar will be visible next to your postings when you create one. Note, this is not applicaple to the Guru Forum, as it’s a seperate webapp.

Looks like there’s now a buildingblock section at the RES forum. It’s even a publicly accessible place – Nice!However, these are not RES endorsed nor certified buildingblocks. Guess it’s the same groundrules which applies around here. Anyway go have a look here
