A few months ago Maingear announced their X-Cube small form factor custom Gaming PC. It struck us as interesting since most people think of ginormous computers when they think of a computer capable of hardcore gaming.
So we asked Maingear if they could loan us one to test out. We wanted to see if a small form factor PC could handle hard core gaming, especially since the system is overclockable. So they sent us one.
Here is the code needed to make a claims form login page for sharepoint 2010 enjoy!
So, finding information (that’s accurate and reliable) for migrating FBA or to a claims based authentication system in SharePoint 2010 seems few and far between. After having done my own claims and FBA migration I thought I’d share my notes for what worked for me.
So I’ve released some new open source solutions targetting SharePoint 2010. Screenshots after the jump! These addons primarily target end user experience and greatly increase the ease of use for uploading with metadata and just general browsing.
-Automatic Treeview Metadata Navigation
-Silverlight host webpart without the 5 second limit
-Silverlight upload form
SharePoint 2010 – Extensions
I published some handy administrative utilities I’ve written over the years to CodePlex for all to use. Currently I just have two projects published.
EmptyRecycleBin – Empties the administrative recycle bin for a site collection
GetEmptyFolders – Scans for and finds all folders with no files in them. Also finds lists and libraries with 0 items in them.
Note: In 2007 their isn’t really a good way to scan for list items under a folder, just for files. So if a folder only contains list items (like other folders) it can erroneously get listed as empty.
Over the past three weeks I got my hands on an HP Z400 Workstation and a MainGear XCube, which I unboxed. I thought it would be easier to just post one entry about the two unboxing instead of two. Then I thought it would be easier to upload the pictures of the unboxing to the forum which I did!
Seagate announced earlier today the release of the new Momentus XT hybrid SSD drive. Combining the low price of a traditional mechanical drive with the speed of an SSD. HardwareGeeks was able to play with the drive before release and write up a review on the drive.
Note: All tests and conclusions were based on an early pre-release version of the Momentus XT due to shipping delays. We will update the review where appropriate when the final hardware has arrived. Due to this not all benchmarks are included at the time of writing.
This is a handy bit of code I wrote earlier today for when I need to empty out a site collections admin recycle bin. Normally a very tedious process if you ever have a good reason to do it. Just compile and run from an elevated command prompt as a site collection administrator. If someone asks nicely I’ll upload the binary.
Syntax: ClearRecycleBin sitecollectionurl
So recently I’ve been playing with jQuery and integrating it in to Sharepoint for basic AJAX functionality in places. Jan Tielens has some great posts to help get started in the area, a personal favorite of mine so far is his post for doing inline search located here: Search as you type with jQuery.
However, I’ve gone ahead and extended his great baseline code a bit for if you want to view full search results instead of just the top few results. Read on for the code changes.
I’ve been scouring the internet for more information on what’s new with the upcoming SharePoint 2010 release.
Information about administration and user experience: Business Collaboration Platform
Information about the new development experience, and some more admin information: Developer and IT Pro Outtakes
Document sets (folders done right): Document Sets in SP2010
I’m looking forward to a lot of the changes, especially the visual webpart designer, AJAX enabled views, and proper folders (document sets). The performance metrics are pretty nifty too.
