With the imminent (?) release of SharePoint 2010 – and the fact that I normally mix in a bit of family, music, nerding AND SharePoint posts here on www.grumpywookie.com, I thought I’d kick off the new year with a new blog.
Behold : www.sharepointroot.com
Before all you Aussie folk start snickering and giggling at the word “root”, there *IS* a reason behind the name of the site.
For a long time now, we’ve been referring to the SharePoint installation folder as the “12 Hive” – which is essentially this (take a deep breath) :
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12
It follows that the new SharePoint 2010 would be the “13 Hive” – but no, they’ve skipped the number “13” (oooh – scary !) – and it’s actually the “14 Hive”.
BUT – it’s to be known as SharePointRoot instead – which kinda makes sense, eh ?
So – that’s the reason for the new name…
Anyway, have a squizz over at my new blog – let me know what you think.
Hopefully there will be a swag of new content (soon) – and I’m porting over much of the current/old posts from here.
Make sure you add the new site to your RSS reader too !
