Using Facebook for socializing at work

I have been reluctant to jump on MySpace, Twitter, etc because it seemed to be so personal focused. I honestly didn’t have much I wanted to share with public or even friends that they weren’t getting from me and my family directly. There has been so much buzz about Facebook and it’s ability to cater to…

SharePoint 3.0 WSP Deployment Scripts

I have been working with a customer over the last few weeks to come up with a mechanism that their Configuration Management (CM) team can use to deploy custom WSS code.  Fortunately, WSS allows our developers to wrap up their code into a Solution (WSP files).  The solution can have things like templates that go on the…

Transformers, go see it!

The red and blue cab of an 18 wheeler rolls into the center of the dark alley with led’s and  lights blazing, Autobot logo right on the grill.  A bunch of spinning and servo sounds accompany the all too familiar whah-whah-whah-kuk sound of Transformer transformation.  Everyone knows that it is Optimus Prime, but as soon as he…

ATT Internet problems, too many iPhones?

My customer just contacted ATT because their on-call phone hasn’t been picking up email today via it’s data connection.  ATT said they are having nationwide Internet problems, but didn’t specify the cause. Anyone care to take a stab at the problem?  My guess is that the surge of iPhone inter-tubbers that have never had a real…

iPhone and ActiveSync, a security concern

A couple days ago, Mary Jo speculated that Apple has licensed Microsoft’s Active Sync technology which allows iPhone to securely sync with Exchange servers (over its smoke signal speed, EDGE data connection).   Will ActiveSync be out of the box today or an upgrade in the future?  Will it be the reported implementation on the iPhone to connect with…

3 months with the Treo 750

I know I come across as a whiner sometimes about gadgets, especially phones.  It’s just that I want one device that can do everything from making a phone call to opening my garage door to sending tri-corder data back to my starship in orbit. The Treo 750 hasn’t disappointed me, at all.  I honestly can’t think…

Inside WSS 3.0

In a really weird coincidence today, I ran into a great book about WSS 3.0. I have been busy hacking away at some old scripts that push around templates, etc on the file system for WSS and MOSS.  The goal is to take a build from Team Foundation Server (TFS) and be able to deploy…

Wil Wheaton and the butterfly tree

I was just going through my feeds, and always save Wil Wheaton and Mark Cuban’s blogs for last.  Mark Cuban’s is one I really enjoy, but takes a lot of concentration because of the topics he covers, and they sometimes get a bit long.  Wil Wheaton has become my absolute favorite blogger, sorry Scoble.  I am…

What Microsoft T-Shirt do you want?

Attention Marketing:  I have a way for you to determine if a product is going to flop or be hot.  Go to some customer sites, techie conventions, give away a bunch of T-shirts with future logos on them.  One per customer, and have them vote with the swag. I have been going though this because some partners and…

Comment changes, what happened to Intertubbers this week?

So, i had to start approving comments today.  I had always allowed annonymous, open comments, but something has gone wrong this week.  I got some profane, angry comments that were completely mis directed.  Is it a new type of SPAM?  I don’t think so, it seems to actually include text or thoughts from the post. …
