I have a BSc(Hons) Software Engineering from Brighton Uni. I like to programme in C# , ASP.net, WPF, Java, Sharepoint, Javascript, Jquery, XML, html, SQL and the list goes on and on....

I have over 2 year commercial experience so far as a sharepoint developer, self tought from scratch just like the other languages except for Java as that was at uni. I know of sharepoint 2007/2010 extensively and some on 2003 but currently studying on 2013. I have migrated an old legacy system and sharepoint 2003 to 2010 yay! I have also experience in K2 2003 and starting on BI and KPI (SB). I am now also working on creating / architechture for a custom intranet portal with a windows 8 theam for 2010.

I like to programme in my spare time, I like to build robots and fishing sea/river :) . Also lets not forget to mention that i like to play on the 360 when i can ;)

comment Replicate site collection with a different URL and retain its content
@CameronVerhelst yes your right but op is looking for a template or copy of the origional site rather than moving it to another location! only the structured content database is copied and site must already exist. "content database specified must already exist, must be attached to the same SQL Server " technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607915(v=office.15).aspx

comment SP13 - Cannot add user as farm administrator
glad to see you got it working, the ps script does that, you need to run the console as admin first ;), that would run it as administrator that is part of wss_admin_wpg!

comment SP13 - Cannot add user as farm administrator
can you goto the 15hive log folder and try again to reproduce the error, then in log folder open the most uptodate file (txt) and search for the correlation id, then update your question with the error that is generated

comment Why is properties in ItemAdding returning an ID of -1 for a User type SharePoint 2013?
just so i can give a correct solution, the lookup value from the list of names, is the value returned the first in the lookup list? seems like its returning the id from the current list and not from the actual lookup list itself if thats the case.

comment Why is properties in ItemAdding returning an ID of -1 for a User type SharePoint 2013?
im confused? i know your not creating a new account but the name your using properties.AfterProperties["Name1"].ToString(); , its that item id that doesnt exist, its created on item added not adding event.... the username itself is valid! so just to understand, you have two fields that your pulling values to check against. one is name and the other is round... round is correct but name is not (id value)?
