Farewell 2008 you were a good year

Well the new year is here and with the advent of 2009 comes a barrage of blog posts summarizing each posters 08 year, so I figured rather than review my year I’d simply provide a list of my top 10 achievements for 2008. This thought failed as all of my achievements seemed to be eclipsed by the arrival of my son Thomas. So I thought a simple farewell would be best suited to see out the year past.

2008 you were a good year lot’s of stuff happened some I shall remember vividly and some I shall push to the back of my mind only to resurface when I’m old an senile. You’ve been replaced by 2009 a new fresh year that with it brings opportunity, and a sense of the unknown that stirs up feelings of excitement of what could be.

2008 you shall always be remembered as the year I became a father and for that you can rest assured that you will hold a special place in my memory.

Now onto the New Year!!!

Setting portal breadcrumb for your MySite host

One of the requests I get a lot when setting up a MOSS intranet’s is that the user has a way to link back to the main portal from their MySite, much like the bread crumbs that appear through out the other areas of MOSS

Doing this is actually pretty easy although the settings to do this are hidden by SharePoint. First thing is first log in as your system account, then navigate to the MySite host

Now you’re logged onto the MySite as the system account, which will give you access to the site settings for the MySite Site collection

Under the “Site Collection Administration” group click on the “Portal site connection” link

Now it’s simply a matter of entering your portal URL, and a “Friendly” name that will appear on screen
