Upload Pictures to Flickr From Windows Live Photo Gallery

Exciting news for Flickr users who prefer the Windows Live Photo Gallery. Microsoft has recently released a new version of Windows Live Photo Gallery that lets you send the pictures to Flickr directly from the desktop. You can use this feature to bulk upload images and folders to Flickr. Similar to the official Flickr uploaders the Microsoft one will resize your pictures before uploading into Flickr and specify where the pictures should be uploaded to the Flickr uploader. You can download this Flickr enabled version of Windows Live Photo Gallery through Windows Automatic Updates (kb943550) or the common Windows Live Installer.

SBS2003 troubleshooting

Susan Bradley AKA the SBS diva is a SBS 2003 Legend!

Following normal Microsoft practice of patching what aint broke and then wondering why it is broke, I installed the Best Practices Analyser last week on my SBS2003 server. Previously it had been running absolutely perfectly. (well as perfectly as a Microsoft server can get - only needed restarting every 2 weeks or so)

The BPA told me my system was largely ok but I should fix some things. With the assistance of Susan I duly fixed these things.

Via Windows Live

Have a look at the Via Windows Live community space. This space is dedicated to developers and helps you build and understand how to utilise Windows Live technologies in your applications. It has different sections on the various Live technologies and APIs that are currently available for software developers. You can also submit content and get involved in the site.

Sharepoint 3.0

I had a few dramas installing the side by side WSS3.0 installation on my SBS2003 server. I had a error when running the Sharepoint Products and Technologies Configuraation wizard.


The error was:

Failed to create the configuration database
An exception of type System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException was thrown.
Additional exception information: Could not find the stored procedure

I posted the problem in the Microsoft partners community newsgroup and got a prompt reply from Robert Li at Microsoft. I needed a hotfix for KB934790. After installing this I was able to complete the rest of the instructions in the installation guide.

Thanks to Susan and Robert for the help!
