A reminder on how the contest works: We’ll be posting three (3) questions related to Windows Server 2012 today (7/11), one per hour from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET. By visiting www.DidYouKnow2012.com, you’ll have the information at your fingertips to find the correct answers to all three questions. Once you have the answers, send a single Email Message directly to Know2012@microsoft.com with all three answers and Your Name, Shipping Address (for the prize), Country of Residence and Microsoft Partner Employer (only employees of Microsoft Partners eligible). The first three people to submit all three correct answers in a single Email Message to Know2012@microsoft.com will win the prizes for the day.

Let the contest begin!! Remember to gather all three answers before you email the message. Be sure to check back here at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST as well for the next two questions.
