an thought provoking comment from the recent ruling in canada where file-sharing was found not illegal by one judge:
In his ruling, von Finckenstein compared the actions the file sharers to the presence of a photocopy machine in a library. "I cannot see a real difference between a library that places a photocopy machine in a room full of copyrighted material and a computer user that places a personal copy on a shared directory linked to a P2P service," he stated.
remember the devdays lesson on securing your environment
while messing with virtual pc for some testing, i came across truly the killer app (bug free)...throughout modern times it remains unscathed remember:
solitaire, circa Windows 3.11
solitaire, current day (Windows XP)
remember the days when you could shutdown windows from the file menu...
if you haven't seen/used the sputility class before, you might want to take a look at some useful, built in functions that may come in handy from time to time...here are some highlights:
some good stuff...
well, i'm pretty swamped and haven't had an opportunity to finish my template 101 whitepaper. i came across new uploads on the gotdotnet sharepoint samples and found a presentation from mikefitz regarding site definitions.
as some of you may know (what i was writing in my little whitepaper) is that frontpage editing breaks the ghosting of your template...here's an excerpt from the presentation (forgive the copy/paste formatting). check out the presentation and other stuff on the gotdotnet sharepoint space
Pages and list schema are read from the site definition files
and cached at IIS process startup
Page source is on the disk, not in the DB
Pulled from the cache at runtime
It still appears to be present in the site, hence the term “ghosted”
Pages are only written to the database when customized within a site
Browser-based customization (i.e. adding/removing web parts) does not change the actual ASPX pages, hence doesn’t unghost
FrontPage customization often changes ASPX pages
Reuse un-customized pages across sites
Reduce unnecessary data storage and retrieval
