Slashdot: Lotus vs. SharePoint

Lotus vs. SharePoint on Slashdot is pretty much the standard Slashdot spam/abuse fest these days, however if you're interested, you might find an interesting quote or two in there.Link: Slashdot: Lotus vs. SharePoint

What's wrong with Lotus?

Volker asks the question "What's wrong with Lotus?". It's a good question.My 2c, is that Lotus is a lot more catchier than WPLC, and will look better on T-Shirts and Caps too.

This sort of code is always a worry. For the slow among you, it's php code designed to log an error when a connection can't be established to the database. Where are the errors logged? To the database stupid, where else?

Resharper 2.0 beta available

The 2.0 beta for Resharper is available for download here.I've always had a bit of an issue in becoming too dependant on tools such as Resharper, however after using the 1.1 version for a few weeks I'm starting to get hooked.

At the time, the only semi useful thing I could find were the old routines in the Sandbox for R5, and I couldn't be arsed spending the time to modify them.Well, it seems my procrastinating has paid off. Someone's updated them for R6/R7, and posted the code here. Which shows that procrastination can sometimes be a good thing.
