February 2009 Cumulative Update… again.

So it would seem that the product team decided to release a second iteration of the February Cumulative Update “Uber” edition.  This time including some sweet functionality to address Document Lifecycle (DLC), Infopath Forms Services (IFS) and Excel Calculation Services (XLSRV).

Fear not if you already installed the first iteration of the February Cumulative Update, this should be a fairly painless process.

The WSS Update information for the update (KB 961755) seems somewhat misleading pertaining to features added since it merely states that the Hotfix contains the following updates:

  • 961750 Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package (Sts.msp): February 24, 2009

  • 963023 Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package (Sts.msp): January 27, 2009

  • 961175 Description of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 hotfix package (Sts.msp): December 19, 2008

  • If you installed then you’ve already installed the previous updates as well.  Maybe I’m missing something on this, but I’m not seeing the value here on the WSS update.

    For MOSS, the jury is still out as the article is not yet published.  More to come on just how simple the installs go.


    WSS Cumulative Update for February 2009 – FTW!

    Just finished updating my VM that I use for my testing and it would seem that things have turned out well per the guidance of folks like Stefan Gossner and Joerg Sinemus.

    Looks like our friendly new version for WSS v3 post installation is  So far, so good, no problems have arisen.



    Dual Monitors = Increased Productivity

    So I finally went ahead and ordered a 24″ Dell Flat Panel Ultrasharp and have to say that I’m quite pleased. So now I’ve got a 24″ widescreen sitting next to my 20″ cube TFT – sweetness… now just have to get a video card with dual DVI. Any recommendations?


    Utilizing Social Bookmarking

    This isn’t necessarily SharePoint related, but just a recommendation that if you claim to be the expert on a topic, or at least a journeyman that has significant interest in a topic and some experience such that they wouldn’t be considered a rookie, I would highly recommend becoming involved with social bookmarking circuits such as Technorati, and Feedburner.

    And just to have a shameless plug…
