Add that to my ever growing list of “things-that-would-be-nice-to-learn-when-I-have -he-time-to-actually-learn-something-new. You said it, Rob.

Last week Brendon Schwartz posted How to select Personal View or Shared View in SharePoint 2007, a tip for those of use who are participating in the beta. Brendon and fellow DevCow Dude Matt Ranlett, have done a bunch of good work promoting and teaching about SharePoint in the Atlanta area. Good job, guys. I’ve […]
Pasting into IE7 Window
I downloaded and installed Internet Explorer version 7 (IE7), beta 3 (replacing beta 2); the install appeared to go without hitch and most websites I visit are displaying correctly. I just went to Google Maps though, and something odd’s happening there. I’d copied an address from another window, and every time I try to paste […]
John Porcaro’s weblog looks fine tonight, nothing odd. The state of his feed is a completely different matter though. Behind his back, someone’s done a dasterdly deed – replacing John’s xml (normally provided in a proper fashion by the folks at FeedBurner) with their own. A file full of vile stuff – adverts for phenobarbital, […]
Apache Virtual Domains and PHP
Back in January I was asked to help build a new site/blog and was happy to do so (they insisted on the colors, don’t shoot me if you don’t like ’em). Frederick also is a video producer, with his vidcasts on the iTunes Music Store, and wanted an easy way to them on the weblog […]
The wacky folks at Google have brought out another fun web application, GoogleMars. Fun, and possibly useful for students who may be studying Mars and the various explorations that have been done so far. Then again, I wonder if today’s science classes even mention Mars?

This release is billed as a security and stability release, that’s normally a good reason to upgrade your system if you’re already a Firefox user. Bueried […]
Jon Udell: The tacit dimension of tech support
…in which he actually does a great job of describing one of my strengths. Sometimes it’s not what you know but what you can find out. I’ve often said that “being an expert isn’t always about knowing the answer as much as it is about knowing where to find the answer.” It’s a good article, […]
Setting Unix File Ownership from Perl
Here’s a little bit of Perl code from a module we use. These functions are used by our cron-driven Perl scripts to (re-)set file ownership after they’ve finished working their magic. They’re probably nowhere near perfect and I welcome any suggestions you may have to improve upon them. Feel free to use this code in […]
Don’t Code for One, Code for All
Stopdesign: “Developing for IE initially, then trying to retrofit for other browsers will increase time and cost in the long run. But there’s a better way to approach development that’s faster and less costly.” As Phil put it, “Web standards, man. They produce results.”
