MoreTipsA while back I posted some Presentation Tips. I will update them one day as I've learned oodles since then.

However, for the CodeCamp this weekend (surely you're going...) I've been asked to give a Presentation Skills Workshop.

That's a tall order, as everyone has their opinion about what makes a good or bad presentation. At any rate, here's the PPT I'm going to use during my talk.

Adding Custom UserControls to DasBlog

Even though the soon-to-come DasBlog 1.8 will include support for Custom Macros, you CAN get custom functionality now with this existing macro:

<%newtelligence.aspnetcontrol("TechEdBloggersFeed.ascx")%>

This will load the specified ASCX control into the page at this location. The code-behind can be in another (non-DasBlog) assembly.

This won't give you access to the DasBlog DataService, that's what the new Custom Macro support does. Still, pretty slick, and a good reminder from Michael Earls.

Microsoft Update versus Windows Update

Sigh, well apparently no one in Microsoft marketing remembers the chaos caused (and still caused) by multiple versions of Windows Messenger versus Microsoft Messenger versus MSN Messenger. And it was only a year ago.

MicrosoftUpdate

Well, anyway, you can switch your system over to Microsoft Update (I have) by visiting http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate. Of course, switch only your personal computer unless your IT department has OK'ed this, yada yada. Looks like a new ActiveX control will be downloaded and you'll have Office Updates included within your Automatic BITS Updates. Shiny.
