I just set up the .Text plug-in for NewsGator on my M200 Tablet. Let’s hope it's working as nicely as it seems to be J There’s been some discussion lately about how to manage synchronization between multiple PCs (most specifically, a desktop and a laptop). I tackled this problem earlier this week when I got this fancy new tablet. For now, here’s my solution… My Documents: The My Documents folder on my Tablet is redirected (using a special domain group policy object – ...
I was on a search for secure server features, I found very interesting on Microsoft ISA Server. Latest version “ISA Server 2004” Provides “Application layer firewall, VPN and web cache”. ISA --> Internet Security and Acceleration Server 1) Secure, Fast and Manageable Internet connectivity. 2) Multilayer enterprise firewall 3) High level web cache. 4) Server alters on malicious attack with firewall guard. 5) Publish multiple secure websites using single IP on external interfaces ...
Kewl, this is kewl, trying out and reading more about OneNote Service Pack Preview is getting me more excited with all the new things I can do along with all the new things I can try. If one has installed Preview 1.1 than they can import OPML files to OneNote now, here is the tool along with the code ( I think the author's name is Joshua Allen) and the other story is a tool is being developed by Omar Shahine called RSS2OneNote. You can launch the application even through IE, put in the RSS feed, ...
I wanted to put some good words about my new productivity tool called Lookout which I have been using now for a long time. I am really happy with the performace and hope it does better in the coming future and comes up with more features. Lookout is a small tool that gets integrated into Outlook and it indexes Outlook .pst file and it can index other folders too. The results are amazingly fast and much more better than Microsoft OS search and inbuilt Outlook search. By default it updates its index ...
Just read more info about OneNote Sp1 Preview on Microsoft Website after reading it on Chris Pratley's blog, just don't have the CD with me now, so will get it and install the Sp1 preview on my system. For me the main features for which I am diving are as follows:- Import pictures into OneNote. Illustrate notes and ideas visually by adding photos taken with a digital camera or webcam. Better Integrate with Other Office Programs • Insert documents from other Office programs into OneNote. Insert ...
Two words 'not much'... at least not remotely as much as I would like, lazing most the past week in thoughts I have no control over or watching TV and chatting aimlessly on MSN (something I rarely do). But I still managed to do a few things geeky :). Introducing GMail Free email with 1000 MB of email space from Google.com! It's relatively not a new thing for geeks with there own POP accounts or people using Outlook Express or other popular mail readers but for end users stuck up with Hotmail, CoolMail ...
Happened to start looking around and shopping for information which can help me to get a head start on Outlook programming model and lots of other such things. So basically many a times I need or keep a site outside MSDN which can provide me with the relevant information. But this site probably is the best which I can get my hands on till now. Has anything and everything which I probably wanted to learn about or read about clearly categorized and organized and collated all in a nice manner. I strongly ...
Wow, I just BSOD'd. It has been a while since that has happened. When it has happened before, it's been because of an audio or perhaps video driver. I must say, I really thank Microsoft for the Crash Analysis Tool. If only more people actually sent the errors into Microsoft, maybe we would have an even more stable OS. Well this time, to my surprise, it wasn't a driver that caused the problem, it was actually a Microsoft application (I highly suspect that it was because of Outlook Express (which I ...
OK, I know SPAM bugs everybody and me the most as I am now getting enough email to keep me busy, so I don't want SPAM mail anymore:). Although I am reasonably happy with Microsoft Outlook 2003 Junk filter, for someone who is still looking for free SPAM filter for their POP3 only accounts can now use K9 developed by Robin Keir, it is free and it is only 77 KB in size, link found via Greg Scher. Tejas Patel ...
Robert Scoble writes on why RSS is better than using Web browsers, I liked the way he has explained it, it simple lay man terms and with calculations which makes it more easier for some people to understand (even the stubborn people). Would completely agree, where getting content from a website is concerned RSS really helps, it's all the same content anyway but I find it more easy to read. Now from the list of sites that I am subscribed to, the only time I visit those sites are if I want to see the ...
Prayer Times 2003 is still in beta, it comes as a plug-in and integrates Islamic prayer times in Microsoft Outlook 2003. Prayer Times is supposed to calculates the times according to your geographical location and the Mathab you are following and generate appointments for the five main prayers as well as for Friday prayer in your personal Outlook calendar along with your other daily appointments. Prayer Time Program (6.70 MB) is FREE for download at:http://download.microsof... ...
I run a INETA/MSDN based .NET User Group called the ‘.NET User Group Karachi’ and the task of moderating the online forum which we have on MSN Groups becomes a bottle neck for other tasks I am involved with namely my BCS degree and my obsession with software architecture. I want all the members to get fresh news and greater content, the reason they signed up for in the first place, but I can not do it manually so I have come up with this little idea, that I would also share here I guess. ...
Wow, this is an awesome tool. If you are like me and HATE using Outlook Express as your default newsreader, check this out. The custom skins and extensions make this tool what it is. Another plus is you can use the same application on Mac and Windows. This was a key selling point for me and Apple iTunes. Click here for a screenshot ...
I know this is my second article today about the same thing but I really can't stress enough how cool I think the idea behind WinFS is. With WinFS you can take disparate stores of information, such as MSN Messenger contacts and Outlook contacts, and share them across all applications in Longhorn. However, since third party applications, like Lotus and other email and collaboration applications, will not be designed to take advantage of these new features, many people think that the real purpose of ...
Have you ever seen RssBandit do this? All I can say is "It wasn't me". Seriously I haven't played around or done anything funny with version x.xxx (I cant even check the version since the menubar is missing :p), well not yet. I guess it might in fact be preparing itself for something funny that I might do in future. Nevertheless that is how it looks like now. And I really miss that toolbar (I never thought I could grow so close to a GUI element). Anyways this gave me the chance of checking ...
Via Microsoft Monitor ... http://www.microsoftmonitor... Microsoft Business Solutions saw year-over-year growth of 41 percent to $190 million. Microsoft attributed much of the growth to licensing sales of Navision and Business Contact Manager. BCM is a client-relationship management add-on to Outlook that ships with three of the six Office 2003 versions. I would consider BCM a direct competitor to ACT! and Goldmine, so over-time sales could be significant. Early BCM success ...
Once I started using Newsgator, I was pretty much hooked. When I only had my one blog on GDN, my blogging life was easy -- I installed the BlogX plugin, and posted away. Once I moved this work-ish blog to GeeksWithBlogs (thanks Jeff!) and created another blog for more personal stuff (it's still a really fuzzy line though), I couldn't post as easily from Outlook because I could only install/use one newsgator posting plugin. I posted a Lazy Web request and lucky for me, Kent responded. I've been using ...
I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen Ibaraki for quite some time now. Many of our authors and friends are interviewed here. For a real classic and glimpse into the publishing world - there is an interview with my ex-boss, John. We do love John! And if you need some insight into Outlook 2003, Patricia Cardoza's interview is a must read. And here are some others you may be interested in...Don Jones, Joe Mayo, James Foxall, Kurt Cagle, with many more coming soon ...
I am not bashing on the site, just miss some functionality. Where are the ratings? I think ratings are a great way to let the authors have feedback. I know they usually don't get much use, but it is still nice. Well on the new DNJ.com, they no longer have ratings, kinda sucks. Another is an issue with the forums. Donny put up a list of email he has sent to his Outlook junk mail. Well for some reason my email was on that list, kinda a bummer for a person who sends him articles via email :). Well the ...
1. If someone updates a post, don't create a new one, update the old one and make it customizable for the user to be posted if it is updated. This is make the Outlook search much easier and my "Mark All As Read" count go down. 2. If someone updates the blog title, update the title of the folder instead of creating a brand new folder. These two things would make my life much easier as I am using Newsgator. I love the tool, just hate those two things. Got anything else ...
