Another IE7 Bug

In an original post, I mentioned a few bugs or annoyances with the first IE 7 Beta. In addition to the controls already mentioned that have issues with IE7 Beta 1, the WYSIWYG controls such as FreeTextBox have issues as well. For instance, I’m typing in the full HTML of this post right now because the FreeTextBox control doesn’t know how to render this control. I can’t wait for a new build and this to be resolved.

Small Business Accounting 2006 on Windows Server 2003

If you plan on installing Small Business Accounting 2006 on Windows Server 2003, be aware that the multi-user setting menu will throw an error unless you enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). ICS can be found be right-clicking on the active network adapter and going into properties. You’ll find the setting under the Advanced tab. Enable ICS and add a new service for TCP Port 56183. This will allow SBA 2006 to communicate and open itself up to external boxes.

MVP Summit In Review

Day 1

Well, not much has happened today except for meeting some new people, seeing some old friends again, and picking up some swag. We’re about to head out for our regional dinners which should be a good time to meet many others.

Day 2

It was cool to see the executive presentations by Steve Ballmer and crew. They talked about the direction of the company, various products, and licensing.

Day 3

The product group presentations were interesting. It was neat to see some of the new improvements in the .NET platform and what lies ahead for developers with Avalon.

Day 4

The demos of Atlas and Quartz were awesome. To see the same demos that we did, check out the videos online from the PDC this year.

This morning at the Microsoft PDC in Los Angelas, California (USA), Microsoft released its first beta of the Atlas project.

Finally Moved In

Well, I’m nearly 100% moved in and unpacked. Some of the walls still look bare, but for the most part, I’m moved in. I’ll be posting pictures sometime this week. Next week I’m heading on vacation. When I return, I’ll have 2 hard weeks of wrapping up all loose ends before heading to Redmond to visit the gang at the Microsoft MVP Summit and ASPInsiders Summit. I hope to meet all of the MVPs that I have not yet met and can’t wait to see all my ASPInsider friends again.
