Welcome to my Blog… again!

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

This is the second time I’ve moved my blog.  I originally started on  and then moved it to http://cjvandyk.spaces.live.com. Now that WSS 3.0 is out of beta and the NDA is no longer in effect, I figured it was time to feed on the dogfood and setup my domain as a WSS site with this blog sub site. This will give me much better control over site content then I had at live.com, and I can also be sure my URL won’t continually keep changing! 🙂 I will be consolidating content from my other blogs here over time so that this can become the main blog source for my content… Anyway, happy reading all…

Visual Studio Tools for WSS (VSTWSS) now available!

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

Visual Studio 2005 Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is one of the most exciting new tools available for SharePoint developers.  There was some mixup in what was NDA, but it is now posted and available on Microsoft Downloads so it’s freely available.

If you check out just one new tool this month, make it this one… you’ll love it… guaranteed!

15 yard Facemask??? Whatever!!!

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in Blog

OK, if you missed it, the Cowboys/Redskins game just ended… the hated Redskins won 22-19 on the most unbelievable play I’ve EVER seen.  First the Redskins missed a 49 yard FG.  Then Tony Romo drove the Cowboys down to take an easy 35 yard FG for the win.  Of course the Cowboys have the Colts’ old idiot kicker and he gets his kick blocked.  Sean Taylor picks up the ball and starts running.  During the run, one of the Cowboys grabbed onto his facemask, in what was flagged for 15 yards.  15 YARDS???!!!  His head just gave a slight twitch… that’s not 15 yards… that’s 5 yards… the way they nearly took Larry Johnson’s head off the other day, now THAT is 15 yards… this certainly isn’t 15 yards!  Even Terry Bradshaw just said so.  Whatever, Taylor was taken down around mid field and adding the 15 yards AND the one free play gave the Redskins the ability to kick a FG that should have been 55 yards out, from 45 yards, to STEAL a win!!!

   

Officiating in the NFL has been terrible this season…  I can only wonder what Mike Perreira’s excuse for this one would be…  Oh yeah, that’s right, it’s a “judgement call”.
