Ward Pond's SQL Server blog

Ruminating on issues pertinent to the design and development of sound databases and processes under Microsoft SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2000 (while reserving the right to vent about anything else that's on my mind)

New Blog Features, With A Caveat: Beware Of Database Geeks Writing HTML

This post doesn't apply for you aggregate surfers; those of you who come to http://blogs.technet.com/wardpond, please read on.

If you look closely, over at the left hand side of the bloo..  er, I mean, blog..  over on the left hand side of the blog, you'll see a couple of new search-related features.  They're real easy to pick out because they're the ones all slammed up against the left-hand margin of your browser page, as opposed to the subtle but now-obvious indenting of the rest of this content.

While I'm busy dusting off HTML "skills" that were last employed to say Hello, World in 1992, here's the rundown: the default Telligent search box has been removed from the site in favor of new tools for bloggers and blog readers from the Windows Live group.

  • The Search Ward Pond's SQL Server blog text entry box and search button will do exactly what the caption implies, and is the direct replacement for the Telligent facility.
  • The Live Search logo button will open up a new browser window with the Live Search homepage loaded.  From this page, you can search the entire Internet.

I hope you find these tools useful; please let me know if you do (or in the unlikely event that you don't :)).  Keep an eye on the homepage in the coming days as I work to integrate them more seamlessly into the flow of the rest of the page.

If you'd like the HTML that enables these little goodies, please let me know; I don't want to post it publicly right now because, frankly, I don't understand it all yet.  The progression of the aforementioned "integration" efforts should give you some insight into how my learning curve is progressing.
