SharePoint Wallpaper for Windows Phone 7

I purchased a Windows Phone 7 device this past weekend… and well it just felt empty without SharePoint Wallpaper. Download Dark SharePoint Wallpaper Download Light SharePoint Wallpaper I created these two for the Samsung Focus, but I’m sure it works on others as well.  If not, someone just let me know and I’ll resize, etc.…

SharePoint Comic Error GUID

We’ve all been in the situation where we are expected to know why SharePoint is acting up.  Majority of the time, it takes a little bit of looking into the problem.  And the ULS Logs are the first place you should start looking.

Compare SharePoint 2010 Editions

Joel Oleson has written a book on Upgrading and Migrating to SharePoint 2010.  Featured in it are many of my previous comics, along with…
