CS Tidbits #11: Add Code Highlighting Capabilities
Today’s tidbit is aimed towards site admins who run websites geared towards programmers.

Dead Sea Scrolls -- A Must See
The Dead Sea Scrolls (well, portions of them) have been in Charlotte over the past couple of months…so I went and saw them yesterday (courtesy of TLC). All I can say is “wow”…first off I was surprised at how small the actual pieces are, secondly I was surprised at how small... Read More...

CS Tidbits #10: Troubleshooting Assembly Binding Failures
This is probably the number 1 source of headaches for new Community Server installations, a runtime exception stating something similar to “Couldn’t load <foo> assembly” or whatnot. Folks new to .Net, or system administrators who may not be intricately familiar with the bevy of... Read More...

Why Is It That...
…at most outdoor street events (in the US at least) the drink/food combination is a recipe for disaster? You have your choice of cheap beers, and more greasy food than you could ever possibly hope to consume…cheap beer and grease do not mix, as I found out last night. Three Budweisers ... Read More...

CS Tidbits #9: Display Full Posts On The Aggregate And Roller
Today’s Community Server tidbit is an easy one…in that it’s very easy to overlook as it isn’t documented anywhere. A common request is “how do I display full blog posts on the aggregate pages and/or my roller page.” By default, CS limits the amount of characters on... Read More...

Thus Begins Another Year
As is commonplace amongst bloggers, for some reason I feel the need to announce my birthday. Today begins my 29th trip around the sun (for those who are mathematically challenged, that means I’m now 28). The past year has been a crazy one…regular readers will know that it’s all kind... Read More...

CS Tidbits #8: A Couple Of CS User Tips
I’ve seen this pop up on the CS.org forums on more than one occasion so I thought I’d mention them in this edition of CS Tidbits (another two for Tuesday deal): How do I restrict my CS site to only registered users?

Weblogs.Asp.Net Being Upgraded to Community Server
[update] looks like they pushed the date back to today. [/update] It looks like the kind folks over at Telligent are upgrading weblogs.asp.net to Community Server over the weekend.

Well That's A Bummer
I’ve lived in my current apartment for two and a half years. I love it…it’s absolutely perfect for me. 780 square feet of goodness located smack dab in the middle of downtown Charlotte. Awesome view, can walk pretty much anywhere I need to get to, etc. Unfortunately the building was... Read More...
