My apologies to Richard, this should have been done sooner, but with the contract gig I am on and the holidays-- time ran away with me.
This podcast contains some introductory information about WSS 3.0. Covering topics such as:
- what WSS 3.0 is,
- what the difference is, especially in terms of licensing, between WSS and MOSS,
- some foundational knowledge about the services WSS uses under the hood,
- the basic concepts of the difference between basic and server farm installs,
- why sharepoint uses web applications, service accounts, and more.
To access the podcast just click on the title of this entry.
Richard, I also wanted you to know that I was startled during the recording of the podcast and accidentally stood up and yanked the laptop off the table by the headset cord, and consequently, the pitch of the recording did change. Please let me know if it is seriously noticeable-- because I will be bummed that I damaged my laptop usb connector/headset.
Tomorrow I have a conference call or two, and will be building slides, but feel free to email me with comments and/or questions.
Thanks for listening and giving me reasons to do podcasts. : ) And for those of you stopping by and checking out the 'cast, feel free to comment as well. Just please be gentle, these podcasts are being created as time permits between work and sleep, and for free.
Maybe later, if these things turn out to be useful, I'll invest some money into it. ; )
