I've been invited to participate in a Microsoft initiative in
which they will sponsor the development of some packages for
Umbraco. These packages will showcase Microsoft technologies and is
part of a wider effort to engage with Open source... functionality around media.As part of this exercise we'll have access to some interesting

products. On a personal note this is also a fantastic opportunity
for me to gain access to some of the Microsoft product teams and
gain some new development skills.We've been asked to blog regularly as part of the project so
you'll see a few posts here in the coming weeks. We've also been
asked to keep

Have you ever logged into a Windows server and seen that a dev has installed Chrome or Firefox to get rid of "funny Internet Explorer warning messages"?

Right click "My Computer"
In the resulting dialogue click Configure IE ESC (on the right side of the window in the "Security information" section
You'll get the following dialogue:
From here, it is simple to turn off the messages which are actually called "Internet Explorer enhanced secruity configuration" rather than "funny messages".

snippet below to see if you have an empty cache before doing the

ran into an issue where this site would regularly go off line
and revert to the Umbraco "no nodes" splash page that you usually
get post install.As the forum thread explains this seems to be an issue
introduced in Umbraco 4.5.x where the content cache can't be
created on startup if SQL server is unavailable (I presume it just

issue on a regular basis as my hosting provider had enabled my
server to auto restart after installing windows updates. When the
server started up there was a race condition between the SQL server
and IIS services
I recently blogged a screencast which demonstrated integration of Microsoft Workflow foundation into Umbraco. Happily, response was positive and I've had a few questions about when it will be available as a package.To set expectations, the short answer is that it won't.The implementation I put together works well for a client of mine as well as my own site, but the effort involved in documenting and polishing it so that it could be released as a package isn't insignificant.On top of that my prototype is based on workflow foundation 3 and MS have now released version 4. There is no backward compatibility and the new version is for .net 4. When you start to throw past present and future versions of Umbraco into the equation you start to come
