The last item under version 5.02 reads

"<3 farewell Justin <3" ....

Does laziness have a limit
I know I am lazy; and I mean really lazy, because today I was wishing that Mike would provide the template for his WSSFAQ site as a .fwp.Ofcourse right now it would be only me who would benefit, since I have a need for that template <evil grin>, but eventually as time goes on the uses for it would increase (and not only by me).I see prospects for the template for creating FAQsSupport sites (FAQ Variant)Internal Request trackingand whatever I need an FAQ variant at the time.Are there any others ......

Smigrate GUI
Things just keep getting better [Via Jan Tielens' Bloggings]Now thats one item off my SPS Wishlist.I am still overwhelmed by the great sense of community around this product. The newsgroups are great (well, yes theres the odd 10 or 20 posts that go unaswered everyday, but hey so few experts, so many questions) And the folks on the SharePoint mailing list are really cool too, plus all those SPS community sites like etc ......

Ethernet powering devices
Off of Techdirt Ethernet Powered Razor BladesYesterday we wrote about the digital electric guitar that used ethernet rather than standard cables. I had assumed that it was just the sound that was piped through the Ethernet, but it sounds like they are using Ethernet for power as well. These days lots of gadget sites talk about cool devices that are powered by USB (my favorite is the USB powered vacuum cleaner), but Cisco is pushing to get more people to start creating Ethernet powered devices, and ......

Another SharePoint Blog

Patrick's points to Sig Webber's blog that shows you different possibilities with the default WebParts and a little "frontpage"ing.

He has got a neat set of WebParts that I should checkout on the bottom right of the page.

Btw this is the most blog-like "blog running on Sharepoint" I have seen

Download forms and Reflector

Saw this post by Rory, and remembered the numerous number of times I have to fill in Lutz's donwload form everytime I want to update reflector.

Lutz whats up with that man? I am not complaining (much at least), its nice that the form is so small, although it can do without any of the other fields too.

Highlight: Introduction to FrontPage DataViews on SharePoint
I came across this link a couple of days back, and I was playing with this feature in Frontpage today.Its pretty cool that you can pull your data from a datasource whether it be a database, xml file, webservice etc.., and generate a view like this above image is from MSDN articleonly with a few clicks. I am sure this one feature that any Portal designer will really love, coz I know a couple of dudes within the company I work for who eventually end up coding the UI front end, and database connection ......

WebPart versioning
I am not really sure if I've posted anything on this topic before. I feel like I have, but if so I couldnt find the post in the archive. So I am risking a second post. However I did asked a similar question up on the sharepoint newsgroup some time back.Over the past few months my team has been building an intranet application based on SharePoint. We've basically being rolling out our own custom WebParts.Whats very odd about managing a WebPart development project is that, versioning is a pain.To increment ......

Poll about online gaming

Heres a survey showing "American women over 40 spend nearly 50 percent more time each week playing online games than men.

Which brings me to another point, I really have to commend the folks at MSN for adding game support to MSN Messenger, its really cool the few minutes you can devote to those simple yet very interesting games.

I'm probably late on this take, but heres the news.

Serious Injury?... Does she mean eye-sore?

One of the nice things about SharePoint is that there are many ways of accessing the data. The most obvious is of course the web interface, but to accomplish thight integration with for example Office 2003, SharePoint offers a bunch of web services. These web services provide identically functionality as you get using the web interface; everything you can do in the web interface is possible using the web services! A nice example of the use of these web services is the integration with Office 2003. ......
