Locate the Process Model section and edit the Ping Enabled and Ping Maximum Response Time properties as shown below. I would only recommend making these changes in a development environment unless you are aware of and accept the impact this may have in other environments.

Windows Phone 7 RTM

While playing around with Silverlight for the 4Blogging engine it has also occured to me that have a mobile interface would have a number of advantages. This should be an achievable goal as the forthcoming phone from Microsoft‘s interface is based on Silverlight. Ah well throw another requirement on the pile!

It seems that the release of the new Windows 7 phones is creeping ever closer with the internal RTM milestone being reached, check out the details below:
