MOSS | Custom Field, drop down auto select hell
The more I work and develop with SharePoint I am learning that 95% of the task, with a little guidance is a walk in the park, especially when compared to that final 5%, which is either impossible or is the most painfully experience any developer can experience!! Take my Friday hell for an example... A requirement comes in for custom news item, with a property that is the users department, but could be changed to another.

Foo Fighters | Wembley
My first trip to the new Wembley stadium was to watch the Foo Fighters gig on Saturday night, who as far as I am concerned are the best band on the planet right now. They did well to beat Oasis to that accolade, but heh, Oasis haven't done anything for quite a while now!!
