Don’t believe everything you read.

I’m doing some work with Nintex workflows at the moment. For those of you that don’t know Nintex Workflow 2010, it’s built on the Windows Workflow Foundation, using the SharePoint workflow engine. As a quick workflow creation tool, it’s a vast improvement over SharePoint Deisgner 2010, but at the heart, it is using SharePoint workflows …

Should I change the name?

To once a month updates? I haven’t stopped since I got back from SPC and have been dashing around between clients working on SharePoint 2007 issues. Doesn’t anyone understand I want to play with SharePoint 2010 now? Or more to the point, I need to upskill in some areas very quickly to get the most …

SharePoint Dispose Checker Tool

The Microsoft SharePoint team have released a SharePoint disposal checker tool to the MSDN community. This command line tool scans individual asseblies, or entire directory structures and analyses the code for memory leaks through poor disposal.

Integrating Search Server Express into WSS 3.0 Team Site.

Just recently we installed Search Server Express for a client on their WSS infrastructure. It’s working quite nicely having a much more granular control than the standard WSS search functions, but my main gripe is the lack of SmallSearchServer control to replace the existing WSS one.

Upgrading Features.

After a little bit of playing around with a console session, I’ve found what seems to be the best way to use this function. (For me at least.. feel …
