  • Blog Post: My Netbook, OneNote and Phone

    Over the next few weeks, I’m traveling around the world spending time with friends and family. I plan to stay unplugged from work the entire time. But unplugged from work doesn’t mean unplugged from technology. :-) Here’s how I’m balancing the art of staying unplugged from work and still remaining connected...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Workspace 2010

    I am a big fan of SharePoint Workspace. I’ve been using SharePoint Workspace for the last few weeks, and I can honestly say that my experience has been fantastic! I thought I’d write a short note to share my own experiences and how I’ve been using it to improve my own personal productivity. As background...

  • Blog Post: SPS Reports

    I've been meaning to blog about this for some time, but just getting around to do so. Recently, we released a report pack for SPS that leverages SQL Reporting Services.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint Extranet Solutions

    Yes. You can deploy SharePoint solutions on the Extranet. I know several small and large customers who either have deployed a SharePoint solution externally or are in the process of doing so.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint MSDN RSS Feed

    We hosted an Architect Portals Bootcamp last week in the Seattle area. I was impressed with the different projects the architects were involved with. However, one thing that I did notice, based on comments and questions some of the attendees had when I spoke to them, is that many folks out there are...
  • Blog Post: Using the word SharePoint

    If you say SharePoint 2003, my respected colleague down the hall from me, Mike Fitzmaurice, won't be very happy. You see, SharePoint 2003 really doesn't make sense; it doesn't mean anything. Tell that to the authors of Microsoft SharePoint 2003 Unleashed - incidentally, a good book. When people use the...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Resources

    I just spent some time adding links to my blog to some of the SharePoint resources. Take a look on the left hand side. There are a lot of resources, downloads, whitepapers and samples available out there... I'll continue adding more links over time. Here's a list of some of the whitepapers: General SPS...

    At TechEd, in one of my sessions, I developed a custom placeholder server control. Here's the sample code that I promised.

  • Blog Post: TechEd 2004 - Creating a Posting with a Web Service Sample Code

    At TechEd 2004 in Amsterdam this year, I presented a couple sessions covering MCMS and SPS topics.

  • Blog Post: MCMS 2002 Performance

    I've met several SPS and MCMS partners and customers over the last few days in Denmark. Denmark is a beautiful country with very nice people. However, to my dismay, it is rainy and cloudy at this very moment - reminds me of good ol' Seattle. Anyway, one of the most frequently asked questions this...

  • Blog Post: Changing MCMS security rights

    Developers ask me very often how they can change MCMS user role security rights using the MCMS Publishing API. The reality is that the publishing API does not allow you to change user rights. Depending on the business requirements, one approach is to take advantage of Active Directory groups. Therefore...

  • Blog Post: cell phones

    I have a Samsung 8500. I was really tempted to get a new phone with imbedded Bluetooth technology and a camera yesterday, but decided against it.
