    Off on holiday - normal service will be resumed in a couple of weeks

    • 0 Comments
    Just in case I forget to do it later in the day I'll do it now (must remember to set my OOF as well). I'm off to a (fingers-crossed) hot and sunny place for a holiday. I'll be back in the country on 6th December and will pick up things from there. Who...

    Expression Web and Source Control

    • 1 Comments
    I confess that I really like Expression Web. It doesn't do everything I'd like, and it doesn't magically solve all my CSS mysteries (and believe me, I create more than my fair share of CSS mysteries) but it gives me a whole lot more options than I'm used...

    MOSS 2007 - KPI webpart outside of a dashboard?

    • 0 Comments
    Some also asked me at last night's event whether it was possible to host the KPI webpart on pages other than dashboards. While I was prerry confident this could be done, I promised to check in the break and promptly forgot. Apologies for that! I tested...

    Many thanks to all those who made the trip out to the Microsoft Campus in Reading last night to attend the Office Server Developer Features session. Our new laptops seemed to do the trick and the VPCs flew along (at the same session we delivered at the...

    Mine's white, no sugar

    • 0 Comments
    This is the sort of web app I wish I'd had the inspiration to create. While it doesn't really work around our office (tea runs are not part of the culture and many of us work from home much of the time - as I am now - so while I'd like someone else to...

    [Sample Code] My TravelNews Mashup Site

    • 2 Comments
    I get so many requests for this code after I've done an ASP.NET AJAX session that I decided I had to find some way to host sample code (rather than set up a separate file transfer for each individual request which was getting a bit painful). So with a...

    TechEd Developers - Almost like being there. *Almost*

    • 1 Comments
    My colleague Paul Foster recently took on a new role as an "Enthusiast Evangelist". Now TBH (don't tell Paul) I don't really know what an enthusiast evangelist is or does. But to be fair, that's probably a true reflection of my perspective on many of...

    Blink and you'll miss a release of ASP.NET AJAX

    • 1 Comments
    Yep, ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 Beta 2 has now released. It's a tad embarrassing as I haven't yet moved to Beta 1 but in my defence I haven't been feeling very well. Hopefully, I'll have a Beta 2 experience later this week... Technorati tags: asp.net , ajax

    ASP.NET AJAX Nuggets Now Live

    • 0 Comments
    I recorded a few introductory ASP.NET AJAX Nuggets a couple of weeks ago and I'm pleased to see they've now gone live. Of course it's just my luck that the ASP.NET AJAX Beta was announced the day after I recorded these nuggets so things have changed a...

    • 1 Comments
    Here's a great post that I found via Daniel's blog about Vista shell features that didn't make the cut. As Daniel says, every post on Shell Blog looks interesting, but the features post is a gem. Technorati tags: vista , shell
