HTML - Redirect to a new site/page

I recently got a request from a customer to un-index their site and have the main page redirect to an entirely different site. In order to do this, you must place this code in the HEAD section of the page for this to work**:

**SyntaxHighlighter is being difficult and won't let me use a META tag in my post so where you see "M ETA=""" in the block, it should simply be the word "META" by itself. Also, do not include the "m" closing tag at all.

How to Format Date/Time fields in CRM Mail Merge

Since I have been working on this for the past hour, I think it only appropriate that I share it with you guys.

By default, when running a Mail Merge, CRM (no matter how you specify the attribute type on the CRM entity) uses a datetime field. This means that even if you create an attribute and set its type as "Date only", CRM will still give you both date and time like this:

"1/25/11 12:00AM"

I followed the steps on Jeremy Winchell's blog and was successful in changing the datetime field to show the desired format:

"January 25, 2011"
