Bart also started blogging - here are some of his first posts:
- Custom document libraries cannot be e-mail enabled
- The count of files and foldres in SharePoint 2007 is different then in SharePoint 2003
- Social networking in SharePoint 2007
For a full description of the service pack - check out KB944811 - Description of Expression Blend Service Pack 1 - but you will definitely need to install Expression Blend SP1 when you want projects created in Blend to open in Visual Studio 2008.
Interesting Gartner article about two hype terms : SOA and BPM.
Although many user organizations have separate service-oriented architecture and business process management initiatives under way, both are more successful and the benefits are compounded when they are united.
The closing general session of TechEd Europe this year was "The irrestible forces meet the moveable objects" from Pat Helland and it talked about how economic and technological forces will impact the way that we develop applications.
One of these technological forces is the shift to multi and many core processors. To take advantage of this massive rise in processing power, there is a now a community tech preview of Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework, a managed programming model for data parallelism, task parallelism and coordination on parallel hardware unified by a common work scheduler.

I actually had the same problem as the guy who wrote the original How to relocate your Groove 2007 files to another disk - my C-partition is only a couple of Gigabytes and most of my data resides on D-partition. Unfortunately Groove 2007 seems to keep it's user and system files on C-drive - so when you are using some big Groove workspaces, your C-drive simply gets swamped.
Luckily, there is a workaround in Vista called symbolic links where you basically redirect your folder to another location (this was the workaround from the original post).
Unfortunately I'm still running Windows XP so no full support for symbolic links. And then I stumbled onto something called junction points which are actually also directory symbolic links (already supported on Windows 2000 and higher.) You can create junction points using the linkd program which you can find in the Windows Resource Kit but there is also a program from Sysinternals called Junction so that you don't need to install the whole Windows Resource Kit.
So what are the steps that you will need to do (based on the original How to relocate your Groove 2007 files to another disk )
- Shutdown Groove
- Create a new folder on the disk you want the files to move to. I created a folder called GrooveData on my D: drive
- Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Office\Groove (well on my machine it actually used another folder - C:\Documents and Settings\[loginid]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\Groove )
- Select the ‘System’ and ‘User’ folder and move them to the directory on the other disk that you created in step 2.
- Use the junction tool to map the folders.
junction "C:\Documents and Settings\[loginid]\Local Settings\Application Data\
I restarted Groove and everything seemed to work fine.

- Dolmen (28%)
- Imec (10%)
- Option (9%)
- Zetes (7%)
- Econocom (7%)
