Sarah Grant noted today on the CRM team blog that support for Dynamics had been added to the MCP logo builder, which is great for me since it means I can now build a logo for myself Which will be shown with pride on website from now on. But for those reading through rss readers then here is the logo

Taglocity is a Outlook 2003/2007 plug in which gives the same idea is tags on blog (like on the right) but to email. Now this isn't really anything special for Outlook as you can get basically this same ability with flags in Outlook. There are three really good features in it though which help it stand out above just flags:
Anyway after using the professional trial for 14 days it expired and I now have the option to purchase or drop to personal edition. The personal edition has a tag cap which is a problem since I do need a lot of tags, and based on the negative points in the main features I can't agree to pay for it. So in the end it will go the way of the dodo and be uninstalled.

I used Taglocity 1.1 with Outlook 2007 on Vista. Outlook 2007 was patched with the performance hotfix.
This ran on an Acer TravelMate 3270 laptop (Intel Core 2 1.67Ghz, 1.5Gb of RAM, 80Gb Hard drive)
Just some videos I found on collegehumor.com last night
Just a heads up that comments are now enabled again!!
I was searching for something (don't ask) and came across an interesting post about upgrading to Microsoft's latest OS:
My initial reaction is that the fancy UI effects make things feel a little sluggish, but there are some very interesting improvements as well (and the visual effects can all be turned off).
The amount of times I've heard that in the last few months about Vista is crazy, but heres the funny bit. The post is about XP. Which made me think back to that and yep I ran XP with the themes turned off for ages (get those few extra FPS out of Unreal '99. By the time I upgraded to Vista toggling themes in XP wasn't even a choice, it wasn't done. It made windows seem odd. Now comes Vista and here we are again. Guess what's going to happen in the next four years? ;)
FindControl BasicsFirst off a primer on FindControl taken from the MSDN help: Searches the current naming container for a server control with the specified id parameter. Example: The following example defines a Button1_Click event handler. When invoked, this handler uses the FindControl method to locate a control with an ID property of TextBox2 on the containing page. If the control is found, its parent is determined using the Parent property and the parent control's ID is written to the page. If TextBox2 is not found, "Control Not Found" is written to the page.
- private void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs MyEventArgs)
- // Find control on page.
- Control myControl1 = FindControl("TextBox2");
- // Get control's parent.
- Control myControl2 = myControl1.Parent;
- Response.Write("Parent of the text box is : " + myControl2.ID);
- Response.Write("Control not found");
Searching Master Page content using FindControlYou could build a recursive find control method which searches master pages and content pages control internally looping through each control and checking the ID, but then you would need to also build one which takes logic for the offset overloaded version. Sounds like too much work, and I guess MS thought so too since it was never designed this way. Example 2: If you wanted to search the master page for a control you could do the following:
- protected virtual Control FindControl(string id, int pathOffset)
- string str;
- if (!this.flags[0x80])
- Control namingContainer = this.NamingContainer;
- if (namingContainer != null)
- return namingContainer.FindControl(id, pathOffset);
