    האם משתמשים אוהבים לראות הודעות בשפות שאינם אנגלית?

    • 17 Comments
    אני בדעה שלא כדאי להציג כברירת מחדל הודעות שאינם באנגלית בדף הבית. הודעה זו מעניינת אולי 1% מהקוראים ושמשמשת כ"רעש" לשאר האוכלוסייה. אם כל ההודעות באתר זה היו מתחלקות שווה בשווה בין אנגלית, עברית, רוסית, סינית וצרפתית אז לפי חשבון פשוט רק כ-20% מההודעות...

    Are the Sharepoint Web Services too complex? Looking for something better?

    • 9 Comments
    I'm looking for a few people to help beta-test an alternative to Sharepoint's web services.
