There is no native Netflix app (yet), so you’ll have to watch it through Windows Media Center. 1) Add the Windows Media Center Feature (http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57445533-75/how-to-add-media-center-to-windows-8-release-preview/) 2) Run the Netflix app in WMC 3) Install Silverlight when prompted 4) Close WMC (so Silverlight will finish installing) 5) Open WMC >> Netflix. Enjoy!
Users need “Edit Item” permissions in order to use the attachment functionality of web-based InfoPath 2007 forms on MOSS 2007. I thought “Contribute” would have been enough, but the Attach a File button is grayed out when this is the case. You can see the difference, as subtle as it is, in the image below.
If you get this error, and haven’t touched a page layout, don’t worry: This page is not using a valid page layout. To correct the problem, edit page settings and select a valid page layout.

Well, the new front-end has a name: WomPF! It doesn’t really stand for anything other than the fact that it was written in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and it’s kind of fun to say. This is a screenshot I snagged after I got the rom pictures/descriptive text to display. The list of games spins left/right. […]
While creating a new project in TFS 2010, I was getting a timeout error that was pretty frustrating. It would get far enough that the SharePoint site was created, but when it came time to upload the Microsoft Agile documentation, it would just time out. It turned out to be my Nod32 antivirus which is […]

Since I’ve moved to Windows 7, I had to make a few software changes. To make Windows load custom software instead of using the default Explorer shell: Use Regedit to change the value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon from “explorer.exe” to the program of choice.
