Wow LAG on my part... and then... not so much lag.

--David McKee--

So I'm aware that I missed last week. (sorry.)And then I'm aware I told David I'd post yesterday evening... (sorry again)... But I'm finally back on top and will try to stay on top of things... or at least very near the top.

I don't have tons of time right now, but I've finally started doing some things at work. Microsoft SharePoint is pretty cool. They gave me a virtual machine with Windows Server 2008 on it. A virtual Machine (VM) runs inside a real computer. However it's not quite the same. If the VM messes up, all I have to do is shut the file because that's all the entire operating system is... one file that runs in Windows XP... or whatever.
I can go over it more if you wish later. It's called Virtual PC and it's free from Microsoft.

Anyhow, SharePoint is something that I thought would be EPICALLY BORING because from what I read in the book and things it was just a bunch of graphs and spreadsheets and...; just not very fun stuff. But they let me loose on my own site and one of the guys showed me how to do all this cool stuff... well it wasn't that cool, mainly making sites and pages and things. But I was able to customize the page and themes so now I'm going to make it all nice and shiny because that's how I believe things should be, very nice and visually attractive. Otherwise it gets boring to look at sooner than later.

I've got pics and things to post here later. I'll post them when I get back to GW.

Ok, good bye for now people!
