I love the SharePoint community. It seems like all it takes is a little comment that something should be created or something else should be documented and someone is always willing to tackle it.
A few weeks ago I asked Tony Bierman if he could create a feature in MOSS 2007 that would give me a link straight to central admin. In SharePoint 2003 we got this automatically but in 2007 not so much. Well, lucky for all of us Tony was up for the challenge and nailed it quite impressively. Check out his article Custom Feature: Link to WSS Central Admin from SharePoint Site Actions Menu which includes the install for this cool feature. Thanks Tony!
