Troubleshooting My Site Creation in SharePoint 2013
I've seen a few examples - some myself and some from others - of issues getting My Sites created in beta 2 of SharePoint 2013. It can be a little tough to track down, because we use a queued approach now to creating personal sites, so you need to do a little digging to track down what's going...

Changing the Master Page on SharePoint 2010 My Sites
Hey all, we ran across kind of a funny situation this week so I thought I would share with you what we saw and what you need to know.
