I'm a dev, and Technical Director at Web Media 360, a digital software agency in London. We focus on delivering amazing software of the kind not normally available to large enterprises.

I get huge amounts of satisfaction from designing and writing software that meets a need and that just works, especially if I can do that with other passionate, like-minded people. I’ve been designing and developing applications from concept through the entire software life-cycle commercially for 7 years (and for fun for many years before that).

I go by Dext3r on Twitter.

comment Language settings are not visible
I know this question is quite old now, but worth correcting - you MUST download a different language pack for each language that you wish to support. SharePoint 2010 support dozens of languages, and each language pack is 200+ MB, so it's not feasible to provide a single package for all languages. To download, follow the link above, select the language you wish to download, wait for the page to refresh, and then click the Download button.

comment Where can I find a list of CAMLvariables and ServerVariables?
@MdMazzotti, excellent point - I dont think that this question has been answered, by either this answer or others on the page. There is a list of Server Variables here: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms524602.aspx (instructions for using them are in Marc D Anderson's answer below), but I still haven't found a source describing the CAML variables.

comment Translation of months / days in the calendar web part
Yes - that's how I've changed the language from English to Greek, and why I have Greek links within the calendar / on the ribbon etc..

comment Incorrect Modified Dates on SharePoint Online for clients in other timezones
So, this led me to the answer - there's a good explanation at stum.de/2010/06/10/…. It seems that SP assumes that all DateTime values in a list are specified in either the web's regional timezone, or UTC (depending on how you create your list) - and the server ignores the timezone of your value when you store it, even if your DateTime value is in another time zone. I don't really understand why SP would ignore the timezone when I save a DateTime value (since this information is easily available to it), but that's SP I guess..
