    Carl Chatfield: Top 10 Problems, #9: Enter fixed dates instead of linking tasks

    • 0 Comments
    Carl here. This week’s ProjHugger post continues the “Top 10 problems new (and not so new) Project users have, and what you can do to ease the pain” series. This week: Top 10 Problems, #9: Enter fixed dates. The default view in Project is the Gantt Chart, and the part of that view to the left is a table—the Entry Table by default. The table exposes several columns, each of which is labeled with a field name. In the default view you might see six or so columns. Two of these columns are labeled "Start" and "Finish" and for any given task you are free to enter a date into either or both fields, or pick a date from the handy drop-down date-picker. But let me offer you some unsolicited advice about setting the Start or Finish date values: in most cases, don't do it! I know the date fields are right...

    Andrew Levicki: New year, new certification challenges

    • 4 Comments
    Andrew here. Hi there. You may remember my tales of Microsoft exams in the second half of last year. As a quick recap let me tell you briefly that I have been working in IT for about 15 years but although I had seriously considered certification exams in the past, I never actually went down that route. Last year I was considering the prevalent economic climate and realised that I wanted to improve my chances on the job market in case the worst happened (it didn’t, luckily) and I wanted my CV to stand out from others. I had seen a lot of jobs that specified Microsoft certification as a pre-requisite for candidate applications, so I decided that this was the year that I would get the qualifications. I enrolled on an intensive course and gained the Microsoft Certified IT Professional Enterprise...

    • 0 Comments
    William here. Hope your holiday was a good one, and welcome to 2010! I’ll keep today’s post short and sweet. Normally, I blog for Microsoft about Windows and Server products, covering everything from Windows 7 to Windows Server to Exchange Server and SQL Server. I also blog for O’Reilly, and mostly about emerging technologies including e-readers, e-books and related topics. You’ll find my Microsoft posts right here on the Microsoft Press blog and my O’Reilly posts on my author page under the Blog link . By now you’ve heard about Ultimate Control Panel (AKA God Mode). I blogged about this feature and how it works at http://ow.ly/T1Fg with a more detailed follow up at http://ow.ly/TpSr . If you are interested in Ultimate Control Panel (AKA God Mode), I hope you’ll read these posts and if...

    Ed Wilson: Developing Windows PowerShell 2.0 Best Practices book

    • 0 Comments
    "While it is true that I have written 3 books on VBScript, I have also written 3 books on PowerShell. I have actually been using Windows PowerShell since before it was publically available, and therefore I do not consider myself to be primarily a VBScript guy. In fact, since PowerShell came out, I have written very few VBScripts. I have, however, written thousands PowerShell scripts...."...
