Ok, nevermind. It seems that there is more than one way to skin a cat with some of these achievements and it is not always the obvious approach. I will press on.
Thanks for the extension ... I can now compete with my son's XBox achievements

Something went wrong getting the Visual Studio Achievements
I was working in VS2010 and saw an achievement pop-up on my screen, but it does not reflect that fact when I look at my successes in Visual Studio or when I look on Channel 9. This was yesterday and I still see nothing. One of them is The Explorer and it shows 11 of 11 and status of
"started", but not complete. The other is On the Shoulders of Giants. What gives?
