Puzzled about an old SharePoint patch
Heres a patch for SharePoint that I didn’t know existed. Its pretty old too (dated 10/15/2003) and that’s the bit that has me puzzled. Wasn’t SharePoint released in October 2003. That would mean this patch came out 15 days after the product release ......

Role of the Canary in SharePoint (Single Sign-On or otherwise)
If you’ve seen my earlier posts on SharePoint Single Sign-On, you would remember that I showed some curiosity regarding the role of the Canary in SharePoint. So here is Chris’s (the nice chap I mentioned in those posts) take on it. The “canary” was implemented to thwart a variety of cross site scripting / single click attacks. Examples include receiving a mail with a link to a malicious web site that then tries to either redirect you to another page or otherwise use your identity ......

Connectable Page Viewer Installation and Make MSI
For a long time I’ve wanted to try out Jim Duncan’s Connectable Page Viewer WebPart, but for some reason or other, the setup never worked proper for me. It runs halfway and stops. Today with the use of a new tool I found I was able to finally install that WebPart. That tool is Make MSI. Its some freebie I found on the net, it lets you do several MSI related tasks, and one of them is to run the MSI with verbose logging. So what did the log tell me about the failed install of “Collutions Web Part - ......

SharePoint security and the UI
A couple of neat thoughts at SharePointblogs shared by Bob Mixon and Dustin Miller on how to fix the ‘Show it all’ UI of SharePoint. Daniel McPhearson also points to this post on Point2Share about options available to alter the UI. Radical thought of the moment: There’s no way I am writing JavaScript to this. I don’t even want to imagine going through all the trouble of debugging the script. Although I do agree with Bob, I would have preferred the adaptive interface to be ......

SharePoint used in the presidential debate, also SharePoint used in Communication and alert WebPortal by Missouri Department of Homeland Security
Bill English the CEO of Mindsharp (a SharePoint training & consulting company) pointed to this article in one of his mails to the sharepointdiscussions yahoo group. Even thought the article keeps mentioning Portal, I think its more of WSS than SPS. But here is another interesting bit from that article “The portal is a prototype of a communication and alert Web portal being developed by the Missouri Department of Homeland Security that's scheduled to go live Nov. 1. The state's $1 million portal, ......

I washed my motherboard yesterday
Yes I did, and it was the Hardware guys who told me to do it. Actually the reason for this need to wash the Motherboard was because I live close to the blasted sea. My place (actually family home) overlooks the Indian Ocean . While this might be mighty awesome from the scenic angle, it is bloody awful for me. Over the past month I found a great buildup of salt on my mother board and VGA card, I didn’t too much notice of it since the PC was working OK. I just gave it a good wipe and continued. But ......

An MSDN Page - I mean dont they think about their users before they publish
Lately I've seen quite a bit of content like this on MSDN, and have been wondering if these authors have lost all knowledge of Web Usability guidelines.
