SP Tech Con So far...

So I've been in San Francisco for a few days to kind of write about some things I've done and seen. I wanted to kind of just write this out so I can process some of it while it's happening. I've met some really cool people so far one person, Barb, in particular seems pretty cool and really nice. Just the type of person you can sit with and kind of have a decent discussion. Really laid back incredibly smart and awesome. Not overly crazy. The other person I met who is insane, but I like is Neville ......

Why is my CSS not working...

So I had the recent privilege to work with a bunch of InputFormTextboxes and KWIZ Tagging Controls. None of them would inherit my styles using the CSSClass tags for some reason. So I shoved a couple spans around the controls in the RenderContents method and finally the links inherited everything I needed. Morale of the story: <span></span> is your friend. Technorati Tags: MOSS,SharePoint,CSS,Webparts ......

SharePoint .Org Conference

I had the privilege of meeting John Stover and Sean Bordner at SharePoint Saturday in Virginia Beach. I wanted to post there conference information in case anyone was interested: The upcoming 2009 .ORG SharePoint Conference is focused on sharing SharePoint knowledge and expertise with Associations and Non Profit Organizations. For 2009 the conference has been expanded, providing as many as four concurrent sessions with topics for everyone from the end-user to the CIO. The main Conference consists ......

More SharePoint Saturday Thoughts

So I think I picked something up this weekend. Not sure what, but I'm not feeling so great. You know me I'm running at 50 mph and when I get sick I have to stop and pause. Sometimes it's great, but other times not so much. Anyway, so a little more on the meeting with Joel, so there was a speaker dinner Friday night. I left my coat by my chair and went to the bathroom. When I came back Joel was sitting next to my chair. It was apparent who it was and I kind of just sat there stunned. Honestly, this ......

Exhaustion and Some Virginia Beach

I am a little tired, so I'm not counting this as my official post. I think I need some time and some sleep to process. I did get 6 1/2 hours of sleep last night, which is the most I can say for last week's total. So anyway....I had no idea what to expect from this event. It is my third full on SharePoint Event. I am a code camp nut, so I usually end up meeting all kinds of .Net and SharePoint people. I would have to say this was one of my favorite events. I'm not so sure it can beat the Regional ......

SharePoint Saturday

So it looks like the first SharePoint Saturday event will be this weekend. I have most of my demos and a few slides thrown together and ready. They have about 200 people signed up for the event. They had to cut off registration. I hope that we can get nearly as many people in Kansas City as they have in Virgnia Beach. I am getting so many session abstracts and will be cutting them off around January 16th at midnight. I have called so many different consulting firms in the area and heard the words ......

Reflecting on 2008...

It's weird it's 2009...If I look back to when I was 10 all I wanted to do was get to 18, so I could leave my parents house. On December 31st, 2000 things were so very different. I was 17 years old about to turn 18 a couple months later. I went to my grandmother's apartment at the assisted living facility a week before and she was complaining of a cold or the flu. This day was the day that she would end up in the hospital. I had this gut feeling that we wouldn't see her again outside of the hospital. ......
