    I'm Back -- Just In Time To Move On...

    • 2 Comments
    The good news is that I'm going to be blogging again. The not-exactly-bad news is that I'll be blogging over at http://mikefizmaurce.wordpress.com . Actually, that's good news. I'll be blogging elsewhere because in 90 minutes, I'll no longer be a Microsoft...

    The RTM SDKs Will Be Downloadable on November 28th, 2006

    • 2 Comments
    I jumped the gun in yesterday's second post when I said the SDKs were ready along with the downloadable trials. They are indeed finished being written, but there are more hoops than you can imagine getting things staged, approved, tested, etc. for distribution...

    Early Xmas Present from the Search and BDC Teams: Custom Security Trimming

    • 4 Comments
    While we generally lock down features many months before we get to RTM and spend all of the remaining time on performance and stability, there are a few – very few – number of times when we find we really have to squeeze in one more feature at the last...

    Using ASP.NET for AJAX in SharePoint Sites: Tread Gently for Now

    • 9 Comments
    We get asked about what we're doing about AJAX quite a lot these days, especially about ASP.NET for AJAX (the technology formerly known as "Atlas"). We *love* AJAX. We actually use AJAX (albeit not ASP.NET for AJAX) all over the place in SharePoint sites...

    WSRP and JSR168 Are Two Completely Different Things...

    • 8 Comments
    WSRP, as I covered a few days ago, is an interoperability standard. It’s platform- and language-neutral. It’s all about requesting and transmitting chunks of HTML using SOAP. Today I’d like to weigh in on something usually uttered in...

    Time To Discusss WSRP...

    • 27 Comments
    I thought I’d start this next wave of postings with the subject I’ve avoided the longest — WSRP. This one will be a little long… What Is WSRP? The abbreviation stands for Web Services for Remote Portlets. There are plenty...

    I Am Back In The Saddle and Ready to Pontificate

    • 7 Comments
    My blog isn’t so much a running news log as it is an opinion column and platform for communicating practical advice. That having been said, I’ve been slacking off for too long. Well, take heart, as I’ve built up a backlog of things to...

    Ghosting, Schmosting!

    • 15 Comments
    This is one item I’ve been holding back for a while. FrontPage “12” will be a great SharePoint site designer on many, many fronts. Like the current version, using it to edit a page in a SharePoint site will cause the page to become unghosted...

    Supportable Customizations: Don't Panic

    Will Windows SharePoint Services Work With SQL Server 2005?

    • 21 Comments
    The short answer: Heck, yeah! The long answer: For the love of God, don’t try it in production yet. SQL Server 2005 hasn’t shipped. But as we’ve been testing our beta code for WSS Service Pack 2, due out later this year, we’ve been testing it against...
