Well new to blogging anyway. Doug McCutcheon has joined the realm of Project bloggers with particular focus on our partner community. Welcome Doug, go visit his blog and perhaps we’ll even find out what ate his cat???
I’ve posted this as an update on my December Cumulative Update article, but think it worth posting afresh too. Thanks Shazeb for bringing to my attention.
If you are running MOSS with Project you should NOT load the December CU for MOSS as it has been withdrawn because of a search issue that is resolved in the February CU.
For full details of the issue please see http://blogs.msdn.com/joerg_sinemus/archive/2009/03/26/moss-december-cu-960011-is-not-available-anymore.aspx and for details of the Feb CU see http://blogs.msdn.com/brismith/archive/2009/03/13/project-server-2007-cumulative-update-for-february-2009.aspx
I had a change around over the weekend and moved away from my blatant copy of Keith Comb’s site and got my own identity. Basically still mostly copied from Keith (thanks Keith) – but with some new colors. I’ll get around to updating my picture too – perhaps some spring flowers?
Also changed today is the map, as Worldmaps has moved I am moving with them and starting afresh. For anyone interested in stats for the last 7 months - my most Westerly reader was in Kauai, Hawaii, most Northerly in Boden, Sweden, Easterly in Suva, Fiji and Southerly in Dunedin, New Zealand. 5% of my readers are within 100 miles, and 88% over 1000 miles away!
The location that most confused me was the strong readership in the Isle of Man, which is an Island in the Irish Sea and part of the U.K. It is a big tourism and finance center (motorcycle fans have probably heard of it). I assumed the Isle was totally populated with project managers – until I realized the .IM internet domain suffix owned by the Isle of Man probably has a life beyond the Irish Sea…
I’ve answered a few comments on recent blog postings on the recent CU release, but thought I’d post again to clear up any misunderstandings.
