I have the best girlfriend ever
So my girlfriend is the best. She gave me an early Christmas present. I told her I could wait but she said that I need to start using it because in a year it wont be good anymore, so I caved in and opened it. Inside I found and XBOX Halo edition and Halo 2. I know you might be asking yourself how could I already not have a XBOX and the answer is that until recently I was in college and college = poor college student. So I have the best girlfriend ever, I mean she even know when XBOX 2 is supposed ......

Figured I would post from B&N

Well I was working on a project for work at B&N and needed some information, but it only existed on the corporate servers. So I bought some time on the wireless here. I figure I would do a post and say that its not bad, I just wish there was a different pricing model. Maybe if you have SBC at home you should be able to use it everywhere else for free to. Not that I have SBC, but I think it would cool. Just a thought.  

Have a good Sunday

Problems programming for Sharepoint 2004 and the Microsoft.SharePoint dlls
So if you are having problems programming for Sharepoint 2003, then here is some help. First to you need to reference Microsoft.SharePoint.dll. You should be able to do most of what you need using this dll. Now if you cannot find this dll on your box you must retrieve it from the server with Sharepoint installed. Using the command prompt, access the GAC and copy the file to where you can access it. Now if you get the error below: Preparing resources...Updating references...The dependency 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Secur... ......

What are a good pair of headphones for someone with glasses?
I have recently received glasses. My mom told me I would go blind being in front of a computer all day long. Oh well maybe I should sue my dad for buying a computer when I was young or maybe I should sue Microsoft for creating DOS so that I may use the computer. Hahah I am not going to sue anyone. What I really need some good headphones that work well with glasses, now that I have lost slightly better then 20/20 vision that I had in my youth. Any suggestions? Even though I did use DOS. I am now 22 ......

Where i have been for the last week...
Well I have been super busy at work. I have been working on a project I have dubbed eDrawings. The project goal is to move all our current (paper)engineering drawings and change orders and put them into a Sharepoint, with an estimated cost savings of about $75,000 a year. It has given me the ability to learn about: wide format network scanning, BizTalk 2004 (next project move all old BizTalk artifacts to BizTalk 2004), and programming for Sharepoint. Overall its been frustrating but very rewarding. ......

People who say things like this should not be in the software industry
"It's not a machine issue," Shafer said. "It's voters not properly following the instructions." People who say things like this should not be in the software industry. I was reading an article on Wired about eVoting Machines and came across that quote. I almost didn't get my coffee down in time. I was shocked to see that a company would blame users for the error. Sorry but thats wrong and anyone out there who would say such a thing should not be in the software industry. We all know that users will ......

BizTalk Sharepoint Send Handler Macros
I have been working with the Sharepoint Adapter from GotDotNet. I have been desperately trying to find a way for BizTalk to get a file from a location and then move it into Sharepoint with retaining the filename. Well if you are looking to do this you cannot. I was looking around HAT and saw that each message has message properties, with information that I could use. Lucky for me that if you are using the File and Sharepoint the way I am InboundTransportType=FILE and ReceivedFileName='the file name'. ......
