I haven’t been blogging very much this year. To be honest, I’ve been involved in a contract for the past year and spend most of my free time learning new tech languages.
Every so often, I think, I should post something. I used to post 3-4 times a month on what was on my mind. I’ve had things on my mind this year, of course, but haven’t felt like posting.
I’ve been given an opportunity to do some work in Sharepoint. I’ve read a lot about it and played with some code, but . . . yawn! Just because it’s a MS technology doesn’t mean it’s great. I hear things like “It’s so powerful. . . you can create a new site in seconds”. But, I can create a better one in Joomla and full control over the html that is output. I’ve seen too many Sharepoint 2010 features work in IE9, but not in Firefox or Chrome. No problem if you are in a bank, but not out in the wild. So, I wont’ be working with Sharepoint anytime soon. It bothers me how much time I’ve spent on it already.
So, I would like to get more of my opinions expressed here. I’m still up at 4:30—but most of that time now goes to working on pet projects or running.
