I'm a geek that has been in the IT industry for 12 years. My passions are around security and everything Microsoft related (especially SharePoint!). I work for Microsoft, although my posts and thoughts are my own.

comment SharePoint project doesn't build on cc.net, but does build on developer workstations
@Ryan: I assume he's referring to the official documentation on setting up a development workstation: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx

Whatever master page is applied to your site :)

comment How do I change the Favicon for my SharePoint install?
It's possible the icon is cached. Does it show up if you try a different browser? If you look at the source code of the page (using the Developer Tools with the F12 key), does your updated link to favicon show up?

comment SharePoint 2010 restricted document library contributors
It turns out this was the solution, which I had completely forgotten about. "Add Items" and "Edit Items" are separate granular permissions... I am not limited to the default permission levels (Contributor, Reader, etc). I just needed to create a custom permission level that included the "Add Item" permission, but not the "Edit Item" permission. List of all permissions here: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc721640.aspx

comment Can a single document in a library be excluded from search?
Good question... it might be. I only have MOSS handy to check. Hopefully someone has a copy of WSS and can weigh in :)

comment SharePoint 2010 site collection quota
Neat trick. I see it shows me the site collection quota, but it doesn't seem to show the size of subsites or lists. Am I looking in the wrong place?

comment How can I move a document from one directory to another?
SharePoint 2007 has the same functionality (it's under the Action menu of document libraries). I don't have an SP2007 installation handy to see if it maintains version history when moving.

comment PDF's in SharePoint 2010
Thanks Wictor- Any good sources for configuring the same with the FoxIt PDF filter? According to Jie Li, it crushes the Adobe ifilter performance: blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2010/02/09/…

comment How can I force SharePoint 2010 to open PDF's in the browser?
Ha! "Potentially Dangerous Files". I believe that... PDF is a pretty reliable delivery mechanism for exploit code these days.
