  • IIS 7 - LH Beta 3 Launch Stuff

    Tons of cool new things in Longhorn Beta 3 on the IIS front , including: ... the first beta of our new FTP server . This isn't a part of Longhorn Server Beta 3, but it is available today and offers a lot of brand new features for you to experience today...
  • FAQ: How can I bundle IIS 6.0 (or IIS 7.0) with my application on an older OS?

    I've seen a few variations on this question come up recently, generally of the form: "We have Windows XP clients and require IIS 7.0 to be installed on them when our application is installed on them. Is there a redist?" In short, no. (Note that this question...

  • New Day Office Videos

    Thanks to Long Zheng for pointing to these. They're brilliant. http://www.istartedsomething.com/20070407/new-day-new-office-videos/ Yes, I'm paid to be here, but I'm not paid to say that! I was especially moved by The Divider.
  • Kerbi Wiki

    Back from another holiday (I call it the Arnold Rimmer technique) I've been trying to collect, rework and refurbish my thoughts on web-based Kerberos stuff in a personal Wiki. You're welcome to peruse it with the usual disclaimers that I'm frequently...
