That's a Blog Century!
I just noticed that my last post was my 100th since starting this blog! I started back in August 2006 so its been a pretty steady climb to the century. I don't plan on ramping up the post count any time soon! I still enjoy the writing the blog and more recently having fun on twitter, met some cool people from Kansas along the way! They have some funny expressions, but It's all good!! I'm waiting for the GWB sponsored "booze up in Bristol"...hehe! Technorati Tags: Steve Clements,Blog century ......

Sorry you're Leaving | Time for a change and a new lappy!
Last Wednesday was my last day at the university, where I have been working. I am starting a new job for a law firm, taking a little twist in technology as I move from mainly doing back-end development to a far more user centric environment on a large MOSS 2007 project, which is my preferred space. I have enjoyed my time at the uni, but among other things I will NOT miss the nightmare commute everyday. This is the leaving card I was presented with ;-) And a couple bottles of wine, one being my favourite ......

TinyUrl or Shrinkster
I know, its on everyone's lips!! If you don't know what www.tinyurl.com or www.shrinkster.com are, they take long URL's and shrink them down into a more memorable/manageable length. It's perfect for things like Twitter where character count is important. Something you may not know, Carl Franklin of .NetRocks stardom runs Shrinkster. It did go down and he decided to take it on... To choose between the two is a matter of choice, but I personally like Shrinkster and here's why: 1. Tinyurl's, tiny url's ......

Run fat boy run....
For about 8 months I have been running, mainly at the gym on the treadmill. I've been clocking up about 9 miles a week, not normally running more than 3 miles in one go. I'm not running for anything other than for a bit of fitness - I certainly enjoy it and have some cool gadgets like a heart rate monitor and that nike plus thing that goes on my foot and in my iPod to give some nice feedback and track how much I do, gives me inspiration. Anyway, this Sunday I am running outside for Sport Relief. ......

Go Sharepoint : From the beginning
Right, the virtual server is up and running...time to soak up some SharePoint...get some dnrTv episodes down my throat. Sahil Malik recorded a series of SharePoint episodes, 4 in fact. He starts with what happens when SharePoint is installed and finishes with some massive XML files for a Business Data Catalogue application. Tip: They are an hour long, so watch it in fast mode, the talking speed is still good and it only takes 30 mins to watch. Session 1 Session 2 Session 3 Session 4 Note: You can ......
