I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people.

INETA Community Champions Award
A couple nights ago I got an email stating that I won some award. At first I saw the header and I was skeptical, because I had never really heard of the award. I thought it was another scam where someone wanted me to throw them some personal information in exchange for some GBP...I opened the email and realized my INETA Mentor was cced and I actually won an award. It's been a while since I've won an award. In fact I think the last award I won was in high school or college and involved Cardinal's ......

On Thursday I am taking 70-541…I am taking many practice exams, reading books, watching webcasts, and doing a billion other things…I encourage anyone to post on this blog thread or in email any questions to stump me related to the WSS 3.0 Application Development.

Two Weeks…No Bed…
All right so I exaggerated slightly with the title, but I literally did not see my bed for two weeks. A couple weeks ago was Passover, so I flew to Florida to visit my grandmother. Nothing exciting really, but Passover and fixing bugs. Then my grandmother, her husband, and I flew to Philadelphia to see my cousins. We had a pretty full house. I stayed for about a week and drove into the New Jersey B&R Office. I also spoke at the Philadelphia Office Geeks about Silverlight 2.0 and SharePoint. It ......

It looks like Paul Schaeflein, Michael Lotter, and others will be presenting. San Francisco is a nice city. You could check out Fisherman’s Wharf and the second largest Chinatown in the country. ......

The Amazingness of Life
As usual I can't sleep and it's most likely related to ims or taking a nap earlier. Tomorrow I am leaving for Philadelphia, PA to see my aunt and my four cousins plus some other people in the area. I'm sitting here talking to someone on im and realizing how stupid I've been lately. We all take for granted what we have. I have an amazing job and I work with great people. I have family and friends that will support me no matter what crazy thing I do, especially my dad and my boyfriend. I have the coolest ......

I want to Update an Item, but I don't want the user to see an alert...
I saw this question on a certification exam for WSS 3.0. I narrowed down the answer and it appears that I was right. I wasn't sure if I was correct, so I consulted someone and they looked up the answer. I also went around google to see what is the actual answer. It turns out if you don't run Item.Update(), but instead Item.SystemUpdate() it doesn't end up modifying the Modified and Modified By fields. This basically means that no alert will get sent when you choose this option over the regular update ......
