I've upgraded SoloPerformance.com.com to DotNetNuke 3.1.1 and put a new version of the DnnCart sofware up there as well.
The latest version of DnnCart has more friendly url changes, and is building links with friendly URLs using Category Names and Product names, which would help to increase our search rankings.
So here's how the story goes. Back in May I signed up to take the exam 70-315 (Developing and Implementing Web Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET), I signed up for a test date in July. I had never taken an MS exam, or even looked at a sample question, so I posted the following thread.
While there were some good sugggestions, I ended up postponing my test date to 8/23 because work was extremely busy (still is) and I hadn't prepared for the test at all. Fast forward to 8/22 at 9pm. I leave the St. Louis Indigo Road show, and look down at my phone, I get a notification that I have an appt the following day, my C# test at 1pm. Oh crap, that's right, I completely forgot about it. I had intended to reschedule again because of the major projects at work, but it was now too late.
I emailed my boss, told him I'd f'd up, was going to fail this test if I even went to take it, not knowing if I'd be able to even go due to the work load right now. I called the proctor for the test, he said I could come in anytime before 5pm, so I could make it to the 1:30pm meeting at a client site that had been scheduled at 11am that morning. I went from the client site, still, having not prepared, with no clue what I was about to get into.
I got there at 3pm, and had 2 hours to take the test. 59 minutes later I was done. I thought, oh well, good practice at least, and I'd get to use the free retake of the test that MS had been offering when I signed up.
I pressed done, and boom, "Congratulations you've passed!" Needless to say, I was a bit suprised, but stoked none the less.
So, 1 test down, 2-4 more to go. Now, I think I'll definitely study for the test of them!
