SharePoint Connections 2007 Day Three

It’s day three of SharePoint Connections 2007 and the strange just keeps getting stranger. I was back at the Office SharePoint Server kiosk fielding as many SharePoint questions as I could handle when I was informed that the entire Expo Hall would be closing at 2:30PM. Now, to be honest, I could have used a […]

SharePoint Connections 2007 Day Two

It’s day two and the wireless access is worse than ever.  Almost impossible to connect now.  Thank goodness for my AT&T 3G card or I would be completely unwired.    Here’s a question for you: if you paid thousands of dollars to have a booth at a conference such as this would you be peeved […]

SharePoint Connections 2007 Day One

It’s the first day of the SharePoint Connections 2007 conference and so far I’m feeling a bit underwhelmed. Registration was easy enough and – naturally – they loaded me down with yet another backpack I have absolutely no use for. I scanned the schedule only to discover that Monday is considered a "pre-conference" day – […]

Setting up Windows 2008 with MOSS

Bob Fox just posted an excellent walkthrough on setting up Windows Server 2008 with MOSS in his lab environment.  A timely article as I’m about to take the plunge and go dual-boot with Vista and Win2k8 on my tablet.    So far, I was able to easily transfer my Vista partition onto a portable drive […]

SharePoint Connections Las Vegas Nov. 5th – 9th

There’s still time to sign up for the SharePoint Connections conference in Las Vegas next week.  I’ll be there along with a bunch of other MVP’s so don’t miss out on your chance for some good SharePoint brain food in Sin City.  Look for me around Microsoft’s SharePoint booth, Ted Pattison Group’s stand, the Interactive […]

Bill English at DFW SharePoint Community Meeting Nov. 6th

Just a quick note to remind everyone that Bill English will be presenting "Findability, Taxonomies and Search in SharePoint Server 2007" at the DFW SharePoint Community meeting on November 6th.  Registration info here.

Tilting at Knowledge Base Windmills

I’m probably going to take some flak for this but sometimes you’ve just gotta stand up and shout when you see officially sanctioned advice that appears to have come right out of left field.  I’m referring to KB944105 – How to customize application pages in the Layouts folder in SharePoint Server 2007 and in Windows SharePoint Services […]

Another Entry in the SharePoint Application Platform Debate

Spence Harbar has a great new entry in the SharePoint Application Platform debate that’s been raging here, here, here, here and here.    Spence’s first point says it all:   "WSS v3 provides a really quite ridiculously large collection of core application framework services or infrastructure plumbing, all for free and all to an extremely […]

DFW SharePoint Community Meeting Nov. 6th

Author and fellow SharePoint MVP Bill English will be presenting at next month’s DFW SharePoint Community meeting.  This is a great opportunity to meet Bill and win some cool prizes so be sure to put it on you calendar.   NOTE: I will be at the SharePoint Connections conference in Las Vegas so keep an […]

Tulsa TechFest, Day Two

With a bit of a hangover from Oktoberfest (did I really drink nearly two pitchers of beer by myself?) I stumbled my way into Day Two of the Tulsa TechFest. The first presentation from Corey Roth was on MOSS Search and the BDC. Corey showed how to create BDC definition files both manually and with […]
