The Collective vs. the Individual by Bil Simser

Is it that difficult to get along and agree to an idea? Probably not. What the hell am I talking about? The SharePoint community of course. No, there's no rebellion going on with some twisted and evil Sith Lord reigning supreme and the rest of us are...

Followup on SharePoint Versioning by Bil Simser

Thanks to some fellow MVPs and co. I got more information on the whole versioning thing. As mentioned, Serge van den Oever posted a blog about it (being one of his bigger griped about versioned libraries). I spent the better part of yesterday morning...

SharePoint Version Bug by Bil Simser

Okay, now I'm pretty convinced that this is a bug or that I'm a complete idiot, one of the two. I'm working with our SharePoint infrastructure provider and Microsoft support on this, but at this point I have to call "bug" on this as I can faithfully reproduce...

Scott Hanselman is my hero by Bil Simser

Scott Hanselman is, hands down, simply my hero today. A couple of years ago he posted a pretty massive list of useful tools, utilities, and must have stuff a any self-respecting geek should have on his hard drive. Now he's updated the list and it's massive...

Moving to 2.0 and other goodness by Bil Simser

What a week of living H-E-double-hockey-sticks as I've had about 10 hours of sleep for the entire week (which is a bit low even for me) and basically got very little done. Two things that I wanted to mention though. Yesterday I had the pleasure of working...

A feeling of Deja Vu by Bil Simser

A long time ago in a technology far, far, away I used to write these things called Doors that ran on community-based, dial-up, text-based systems called BBSes (yes, before the big bad "Internet"). A BBS was like a website (but not really) where communities...

Catching up, CTP Madness, and PDC ranking by Bil Simser

I'm playing catch up today as things in the universe are just a little off kilter for me. The weekend was a bit of a bust with regards to getting my Remote SharePoint Explorer out as I was bogged down in re-installing (yet again) Windows XP. For the life...

Send Bil to PDC by Bil Simser

This morning is special. It's special because I'm on my knees to the SharePoint blogging community (and anyone else who stumbled on this blog after googling for "contest"). The good geeks over at Channel 9 are sending some lucky nerd to this years Professional...

SharePoint Wrappers, a new tool for you, and more on TechEd that I didn't go to by Bil Simser

No SharePointy stuff today as I'm just spending most of my day re-configuring our VMs so calls to SPUtility.GuessLoginNameFromEmail will work. I do have some goodies coming up this weekend as a server move is going to keep me away from the office so I...
