Screencast Setting up MOSS to Recieve Email
The other day I was totally playing around with configuring SharePoint to recieve emails. I totally went to town with with configuring Virtual Server (VS), Creating a Private Network within VS, and setting up MOSS Virtual Machine (VM) and Exchange/DC VM. For some reason I couldnt get far. I see the messages I send in Exchange's queue, and on the MOSS box in IIIS under SMTP Sessions I see a session with the Exchange box. But thats it, my lists dont recieve the emails I send. Anyways enough of my ranting, ......

How Do You Debug WSH Scripts
I was playing around with Mart's idea and wanted to 'step through' the Infopath Down Level Script. So how do you debug wsh scripts? That is a question that has been asked before in the newsgroups.

Solution: wscript /d /x <script file> where /d = Enable Active Debugging /x = Execute script in debugger Technorati tags: Debugging, WSH Scripts, js, Debugger Cross-posted from tariqayad.com ......

SharePoint Solution Generator hardcoded to lookup the Default Website (Port 80)
I experienced an issue with the SharePoint Solution Generator today it kept crashing right the first screen (i.e. choosing Site Definition and clicking next). The exception being thrown shows that the tool is looking for a SharePoint site on the default website i.e. http://ServerName Now in this paticular case there was no SharePoint site on the on port 80 so http://ServerName would naturually fail.

Things that should be easy: Hiding a link from a Publishing sites Top Navigation Bar
In a MOSS publishing site (can I say CMS 2007?) there is an editor in which you can change the navigation elements shown on the Top Navigation. At first glance you would assume that it would be easy to manupilate elements on that top navigation bar through code. Infact Todd has an in-depth article showing you how to add and remove items from the navigation bar. But have you tried to hide an element. Its not as easy at it would seem. TheSPNavigationNode.IsVisible propperty is readonly, and I am yet ......

Why more Authors should write reviews on Shopping Sites
I found this link on i-am-bored.com today. Its a review to a page on Amazon.com selling Chiquita Bananas. What you should look at is the reviews and not the item. Specially the review by Z. Wolf. I think more authors should write reviews for this reason. Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/pr... Technorati tags: Banana, Review, Amazon Cross-posted from tariqayad.com ......

Hidden Share Revealer
A good friend and ex-colleague of mine seems to have been bitten by an evil bug causing him to devote his free time to creating a tool that will report all hidden shares on a remote machine. The tool is available for download here. Your colleagues in your lan thought they could hide their party photos and mp3s from you, but not any more. Link: http://projectdistributor.n...
