How to add a webpart to a Sharepoint “NewForm.aspx”

I wanted to put a hidden CEWP on top of a standard SharePoint input form (you know when you click “NEW” too add an item to a list). The edit page was grayed out. I added to the querystring “NewForm.aspx?ToolPaneView=2” and I can add the CEWP to the top of the page. Once I added that, the edit page option is no longer grayed out.

BASH (readline) keyboard shortcuts

I was just in training and the instructor was a command line keyboard shortcut wizard. He was magically making words disappear and reappear. So i fond this list of shortcuts. Many of them did not work in my OS X BASH prompt.I fond I had to go into the preferences and select “use option key as meta key” on the keyboard tab (it is at the bottom). Now I can add a few shortcuts to my repertoire.

Visual Studio with VMware Fusion and SSH

I work on a Mac, but by day I am a windows guy. Even though I am not a developer, I often hack about using Visual Studio on the PC. Recently, have been working more and more with Linux, and I wanted to use Visual Studio on my Mac via VMware Fusion to edit some .css files on a linux slice that I have setup. I was looking for extension to Visual Studio to connect to a ssh/sftp site. Then it hit me (things would be a lot easier if I was smarter) – VMware Fusion installed the FUSE file system (optional) on my Mac. I can use the program MacFusion on my Mac to “mount” a ssh FUSE file system, and then add a VMware Fusion “Shared folder” to point to the mounted folder.

Now I can use Visual Studio to edit files on a Linux box!
