Can’t Print From IE?

May 18, 2009

In my local a few weeks ago I was talking to a mate who’s a Chesterfield fan.  He was unable to print the Chesterfield fixture list, teams etc. and was unable to.  He’d been able to do this in the past but wasn’t able to do it now.  He could print emails emails, notepad files etc. fine […]

Microsoft Tags

April 30, 2009

I like this technology http://www.microsoft.com/tag/ a lot! I created a tag which represented the url to this blog http://www.anthonypounder.com I printed the design on a colour printer, downloaded the app for my moby and thought I’d witnessed proper magic when I clicked the camera on my phone and Safari started up and displayed this blog.

Office 2007 SP2 – CRM 4 Integration

April 29, 2009

As my previous post documents, I’ve updated my Outlook 2007 installation with the just released SP2.   It’s early days but I’ve noticed that performance appears to have been improved in Outlook (as promised by MS) however, until now I’d not had a chance to test the MS CRM 4.0 integration.   MS CRM installation […]

Office 2007 SP2

April 28, 2009

I Hate Outlook 2007!   I’ll start this by saying that I find Outlook 2007 to be a right royal pain in the ass.  It’s slow, unwiedly and at times proves to be not very useful.   I’m forever seeing what I call the "White Screen of Near Death" – this is where you click […]

Relocating SVN Repository

April 23, 2009

While Intelligent Decisioning Ltd are a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, we still make use of Subversion (Svn) to host our code repository.  I know that Team Foundation Server is a great piece of s/w but it’s big, complicated and requires all developers to have Team Foundation server functionality and some of the devs we work […]

NUnit – No Test Fixtures

April 14, 2009

I’m writing some SharePoint code and using NUnit as part of my unit testing strategy.   I was writing some tests for a method that I’d already written (I know, I know it’s not TDD – I think of it as a technique which I term "TAD" Test After Design ;->).   I’d already deployed […]

Subversion, Cruise Control, NUnit & MSBuild

April 14, 2009

DRAFTED on November 30 but not published until now…….   I’m currently employed as a .Net development consultant for a large telecomms company.  There’s me and another guy who have been drafted into develop a publish/subscribe system, allowing messages to be published from publishing applications to any subscribed servers.   We’re developing from 2 separate locations in […]

Computers Make Me Go Aaaarrrghhhhh!

March 23, 2009

Came home from work today and moved some bedroom furniture as we’re having new carpets fitted tomorrow.   At 08:20 I switched on my laptop and set off to do a little bit of dev work……   No wireless network connection available.  "Damn!", why isn’t that connecting?  I checked the settings, rechecked the settings.  I […]

Using The BDC – Battle Scars

March 20, 2009

After creating a Sharepoint managed property, make sure you recrawl the content source again.   If you don’t do this Sharepoint will refuse to see your new carefully crafted property and ……..   You will experience "Sharepoint Rage" (I did anyway) as you test your custom search page (and code) for a long, long time   […]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

March 20, 2009

Ever wondered why Microsoft always use the text:   "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue massa. Fusce posuere, magna sed pulvinar ultricies, purus lectus malesuada libero, sit amet commodo magna eros quis urna. Nunc viverra imperdiet enim. Fusce est. Vivamus a tellus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada […]
