Hurricane Gustav, Emergency Response, SharePoint, Web 2.0 and Social Computing (Michael Gannotti on SharePoint +)
In past postings I have talked extensively about leveraging a combination of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 as well as various social computing services from Microsoft to deal with a range of situations from emergency response/disaster relief, to corporate plant inspection, right on down to personal use. Watching network coverage of Hurricane Gustav I have seen ample use of the news media of various physical devices as well as online service. With that in mind I thought I would tackle some of the situations that arise in a situation like this and point out devices, services, and SharePoint uses that could be brought to bare.
Google Chrome Works for SharePoint Users, Less So for Administrators (Eli Robillard's World of Blog)
Today I downloaded and installed the just-released Google Chrome browser, ran it through some preliminary tests with SharePoint 2007 and so far, acceptable but missing a few key things. Chrome supports NTLM authentication, uploads (though not multiple uploads), renders all the usual menus correctly, and generally does a good job of rendering SharePoint pages. And it's screaming fast.
The "Language" of Advanced Search (Part 1) (Woody Windischman - The Sanity Point)
If you have been using MOSS Search or Search Server, you have probably noticed that the Advanced Search page gives you lots of options to restrict results. From different word filters, to particular languages, to document types - even specific document properties. You may have wondered how (or even if) you could cut back the list of word filters. For example, you might only want your users to search for exact phrases. Or maybe you want the language list or document types to reflect the languages and documents actually in use by your enterprise, without reinventing the whole form.
