Flying

(Actually from last night during the flight, but then I got home…) As part of my new position for CampusEAI I’ve had a fairly aggressive travel schedule over the past few weeks (the cost of not relocating). It has however forced me to become much more closely acquainted with the airlines (and Continental in particular) ...

uP3 Day 5: More Person Directory & Data.xml Channel Publishing

Faizan’s PersonDirectory changes didn’t seem to take on my machine — not sure why, maybe the UserAttributesPortlet got patched, and I don’t have the most current version? I think he started looking at GAPS at home, but was running into some problems. I’m still looking at migrating our template user into the portal framework. For ...
