  • Disappointment with Telligent

    A few years back, I went out in search of a .NET-based forums product and found the then-awesome CommunityServer application.  I built a couple of corporate intranet sites on the platform, and then built a new personal site for myself on it. The problem is that Telligent steadily moved away from the small-to-mid-sized customer and continued ...

  • Is Society Becoming Less Substantive?

    Or, as I recently pondered on my Facebook, Plaxo, LinkedIn and Twitter status updates (via HelloTxt): Andrew wonders whether or not the ubiquity of micro-blogging has diminished our capacity for substantive conversation... Is our reliance on the immediacy of information, and our apparent fascination with providing up-to-the-minute reports ...

  • Random Thoughts to Close Out April 2008

    I haven't posted in a few weeks, but not because I don't have anything to write -- it's because I haven't mastered the art of dividing my time across all needs and wants. Here are a few thoughts that hint of posts to come: I need to write about Strategy, Leadership, and Success, particularly in a corporate context.   I have a number ...

  • Live Writer in 64-bit Vista

    Finally, it works. It looks like the latest builds for Microsoft's Windows Live Writer will run successfully under Vista x64.   I don't know for sure which build the change occurred with, but this makes me a very happy camper.  I almost don't want to blog if I can't do it in Live Writer... If you're still running a 64-bit edition ...

  • The Ever Inconsistent Microsoft...

    One of the things that annoys me about Microsoft (and this is true, to some extent, of any large company) is that there are too many times where it seems that one hand is not talking to the other.  Sometimes, it seems like one hand doesn't even know that there's another hand. Some of the most recent examples of this silliness are as ...

  • Community Server Update is on the Horizon...

    Service Pack 3 for Community Server 2007 is on the horizon, considering that a beta for SP3 was recently made available by the folks at Telligent.  I'm glad that I checked, because I was planning to update my site to CS2007 SP2 this holiday weekend, but I remembered that I have previously been surprised by updates on occasions such as ...

  • Another Busy Month...

    June has been chock-full of fun, excitement and new challenges.  I have hardly had any chance to breathe -- as evidenced by a dearth of posts to this blog. Hopefully, this weekend I will have a chance to summarize all the excitement, but it involves lots of activities at work and at church.  Last Sunday, we had perfect weather for ...

  • The Daily News FAQ from Community Server

      The world of Telligent and Community Server is ever-changing.  Recently, Dave Burke has been working on a CS Daily News FAQ which would cull items from the Community Server Daily News blog and itemize them for easy reference.  The Daily News FAQ currently has a temporary home with the Community Server MVPs, so don't ...

  • Testing Blogmailr

    This is my first test of Blogmailr, brought to us by Telligent: the makers of the awesome Community Server platform.   I'll have to see if this works just the way I want it to, but the idea is that I can post to my blog via email.    Hmmmm...   Is this too good to be true?  We'll have to see.   I ...

  • Windows Live Writer Update

    Microsoft just released an update to Windows Live Writer.  There are some great changes, including better support for tags, faster loading times, and some new plug-ins.  I'm looking for a reason to use some of these plug-ins, like the one for handling acronyms.  I'll have to save that for another post...  Technorati tags: ...

  • Weird Blogging Error...

    Every now and then, for reasons that I have yet to pin down, when I make a blog post, it will be available for a few minutes, and then it will generate an error if I try to reach it directly.  It will be fine enough to edit, and it will show up fine on the home page of the blog, but not with a direct link. I just experienced this with ...

  • Windows Live Writer Plug-ins

    Windows Live Writer is turning out to be one of those tools that I can't live without, much as I originally suspected. And it has been made even more useful with a collection of Plug-ins posted on CodePlex, and sponsored by Keyvan Nayyeri. I've just started testing the plug-ins, and they are pretty cool. I do wish that the ''Insert ...

  • Test Subject: I'm testing, testing! Yes, Indeed.

    This is a test of a new blog autonaming CS Module that Jarda Jirava produced, based on a thread I started over at the Community Server forums. I know I've said it before, but I really, really love this community. Now, let's see what name my lovely post gets! (All things considered, I'm really happy that I upgraded to ASP.NET 2.0 last week, ...

  • My first blogging attempt with Windows Live Writer

    Okay, so after reading about 5 different reviews on the joy and wonder of Windows Live Writer, I just had to go out and try it myself.   And in just under 5 minutes, all I can say is:  Sweet! I'm pretty sure that WLW is going to swiftly become my primary blog publishing mechanism. Home of the UltraTech Zone... This was much ...

  • Blogging, Blogging Everywhere

    Microsoft has just released a beta of their new Blogging Tool that will work with Windows Live and any of the popular blogging services.  So far, Windows Live Writer is getting some rave reviews. I still need to test out the beta of Office 2007, but I haven't been able to fit it into my schedule.  Word 2007 has facilities for easy ...
