Now that Microsoft has lifted the veil on WSS v3 at the PDC05, I think it is safe to publish on the upcoming features. There’s been several blog publications on it, but I am going to attempt to address not only the question of what is coming, but also what it means to current users of v2. I have to be careful not to step over my NDA boundary, but it is safe to publish on everything that was shown publicly at PDC. I won’t be publishing anything new that someone else has not published as I respectfully will stick to my NDA, but I will attempt to take what is public information now and apply it to the problems we face daily in v2 showing how such problems are addressed in v3, so stay tuned…
Barely had I returned home or we have a massive thunderstorm come through our neck of the woods. We have a beloved old Maple tree in the back yard. It’s really old and really big! Unfortunately, it has a tendency of self destructing and dropping limbs whenever heavy winds are abound.
I just got back from a 10 day, get away from it all break. I visited a friend in northern Michigan and for 10 days I had no access to internet or cell phone. It was GREAT to just get away from it all for a while.
There has long since been a need for a good auditing tool for SharePoint. There are several options on the market such as the one from Syntergy, but the problem is that most of these solutions achieve their ability to audit what goes on in SharePoint by adding table triggers to your SharePoint databases.
