Listing SPQuery FieldNameRefs
It took me a while to figure out how to get a list of all the available fields for a particular type of list in SharePoint (for performing custom queries in SPQuery). I was looking for a published list of these fields, which as far as I know does not exist. Instead, you just use the GetList method of the Lists SOAP service. Here’s an example SOAP request: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://sche... SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="htt... ......

The Case For Simple Services
Ralph James put together a video entitled “The Case For Simple Services”: Discover RSSBus Simple Services™. This video explores simple services concepts, and demonstrates how RSSBus can be used to enhance data, application, and service accessibility. RSSBus Simple Services are "simple" because they are called with standard URLs and they return data streams as RSS name-value pairs, HTML pages, and other popular, easy-to-consume formats. They don't require programming, custom clients, SOAP envelopes, ......

RSS data feeds - RSS is not just for blogs
Randy Charles Morin doesn't know why anyone would want to use RSS to transmit OFX data. I find his confusion odd: ... why do you need RSS as an envelop for financial data in the first place. We have OFX, which predates RSS and works just fine. RSS can't be expected to do everything. Not that it can't. You can also use RSS as an envelope for OFX, but why not just use OFX? I don't expect my dishwasher to do the laundry, even if it can. RSS can be expected to do what it is best at - syndicating data ......

"You can connect all sorts of data and systems together using RSS"
I'm sitting here in Dion Hinchcliffe's Web 2.0 Expo presentation entitled "What is Web 2.0: The Rules for Creating Successful Online Products in the 21st Century". He just said "We spend hundreds of billions on connecting systems together... You can connect all sorts of other data and systems together using RSS." And RSS doesn't cost billions. There's some simple math for ya. Then he mentioned that one of his clients told him to take all the SOAP stuff out, and take the REST stuff out too. "We want ......

PowerShell console buffer to html
Adrian at soapyfrog posted a function recently for grabbing the contents of the PowerShell console buffer and pushing them out as html. I saved it and finally got around to using it today. Very useful, added to my profile. Thanks Adrian!

Buzzword soup: web 2.0, hype, and other random thoughts
Today I pieced together some random thoughts on web 2.0. Here they are, sloppily weaved together. Calcanis "gets it". His blog post about paying digg diggers was digged, flickr'd,'d, and even TechCrunch'd (hey, even bad publicity is still good publicity). Before its all over with, this will probably be IT Conversation'd (or should I say GigaVoxed? Conversation Networked? I'm not sure which it is these days) by Doug Kaye and PodTech'd by Robert Scoble (or John Furrier) too. Bloggers, vloggers, ......

AdWords API - 404 Not Found
Today I revisited an Adwords demo that I worked on a while back. It didn't work! The last time I checked it was working fine! The response from every soap request was: <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>Not FoundTITLE> <HEAD> <BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000"> <H1>Not Found<H1> <H2>Error 404<H2> <BODY> <HTML>I looked at the code and saw nothing wrong. I looked at the account information I was using and saw nothing wrong. After about 20 minutes ......
