    Outlook Web Access Customization TechNet Articles

    • 1 Comments
    There are a couple new TechNet articles on customizing Outlook Web Access. These are two months old now, but given that I haven't posted in some four months, I'll consider them "new". In any case, they deal with creating custom UI themes and changing...

    Here's a little CSS quiz that I found courtesy of the CSS weblog (yes, there is such a thing). I got a 19 out of 20. Apparently I messed up the index of the left and right padding values. No doubt the result of years and years of writing symmetric web...

    So, today the sphere is all a buzz with the US launch of MSN Spaces. I am psyched that the Japanese beta of Spaces I had associated with my Passport automatically converted to English with the launch. Now I can read and customize it. I guess Scoble will...

    I have really fallen off blogging lately. I think I'll probably be migrating to my own server and cross-posting technical pieces here in the near future if I can find time to put some kind of UI together. Unfortunately I haven't found the time to do things...
