CNet Article features Don Box
There's this CNET article today that features Don Box on Longhorn. Well theres nothing pheonomenoly new there, but I ask you "Box is leading the work on the "plumbing" part of Longhorn, called "Indigo," which is effectively the successor to Microsoft .Net " - Thats interesting. I guess in future we can expect run-away headlines like "Microsoft Builds successor to .NET", ".NET done with", "Microsoft looks beyond .NET", ".NET is obsolete" etc. etc. Well you get the drift. All that is required is some ......

On intraVnews
Have you ever seen RssBandit do this? All I can say is "It wasn't me". Seriously I haven't played around or done anything funny with version x.xxx (I cant even check the version since the menubar is missing :p), well not yet. I guess it might in fact be preparing itself for something funny that I might do in future. Nevertheless that is how it looks like now. And I really miss that toolbar (I never thought I could grow so close to a GUI element). Anyways this gave me the chance of checking ......

Ads on msn.com require authentication
It looks like somebody forgot to turn on anonymous access at MSN.
Whenever I go to msn.com or hotmail I get prompted to login to global.msads.net.

Heres a quick hack - if you just say cancel - some of the adds will not be on the page - duuh!!!

Look what I found

Wanting to find some really technical MSDN article regarding the PageView=Shared. I consulted google.


The search result was to one of the internal lists inside http://collegewriting.us/default.aspx. - another one to add to my list of "one those SPS sites on the net".

Geek Idol
Off of slashdot. Rolling stone has an article about Justin Frankel The man behind the digital music revolution (IMO) and the man behind many great things. When I was at college I used to envy the guys at Nullsoft. As a matter of fact I still do. With all their witty comments, rants, and developing of Winamp. It was absolute green eyed envy. Back in its hay day, I had a really souped up Winamp, with about 200+ skins, and 40 odd plugins. I even tried my hand at skinning, but that didn't last long. ......

WorldLingo
Whilst surfing the internet there is the rare occasion where you come across the odd Chinese site. Usually if the site has some content you want, you are at a loss since the almighty google doesnt have translation from Chinese. That's one of the nice features of WorldLingo - it takes up from where google fails. What's really neat is that I can do this from within MyIE2 in just a couple of clicks [RSS Bandit] ......

Sending a mail to your SPS document library
This is one feature in SPS that sounds so cooool. Kudos to the SPS team for having this feature. I can just imagine the potential around this feature for portals, especially if you have some system built around SPS. Imagine the convenience of just having to send a mail to SPS rather than fill out an upload form. Heres a MSD2D howto on the subject that came by mail today http://msd2d.com/newsletter... ......

SPS 2003 and Extranet access
Recently I had the issue of dealing with SPS2003 and Extranet access. The issue is ofcourse no issue at all, but just the problem of how to add external users (i.e. ppl outside your Windows domain) and users of the Portal. Here are a couple of links that would aid anyone else who wants to achieve this. Google indexed discussion @ microsoft.public.sharepoint... Whitepaper on how to Expose WSS through MS Small Business Server. And there is a whole email thread on this subject at sharepoint@yahoogroups.com ......

History of Photography & Colombo
A friend of mine sent me some pictures of how Colombo was back in the 1800s. At first I was a skeptical, and thought that they were highly bogus. For my ignorance I wasn't aware of when the photographic camera was really invented. It couldn't have been around in the 1800's now could it. Wanting to find out, I stumbled across this site. For your reference I've uploaded the images to my gallery, and if you are planning on visiting Sri Lanka, dont expect to recognize anything you see in the photos ......

A simplified WebPart build process.
Deploying WebParts after you make a build is a bit of a hassle especially because you have to leave you IDE to do a couple of things. The basic process is you need to 1. Compile 2. Install the assembly to the GAC 3. Copy assembly to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bin 4. Recycle the MS SharePoint default app pool - to invoke the new instance of the assembly -> Typically you will have to switch between VS.NET, InetMgr, and the command prompt. So here’s what I do. 1. My WebPart projects have their default ......

Webcast away
I use to find the Microsoft Webcasts a great resource. It is very usefull for finding out about a new Microsoft technology or really comming up to speed about a technology concept. Infact I was quite a proponent of it claiming that Microsoft are real nice people making such great resources available (for free I might add). And I am sure the webcasts did their own bit in marketting MS products and technologies. It used to be quite fantastic. Yes I said “Used To Be“. Previously you could ......
