Operation Smile: Nonprofit changes lives with help...

Operation Smile provides free surgeries to correct facial deformities for thousands of children every year. The nonprofit organization wanted to expand the reach of its work, but it needed better technology tools to support growth. The organization adopted Microsoft Office 365 to remove technological barriers and streamline collaboration. Operation Smile can now put the pieces in place to significantly increase its number of surgeries each year and make a difference in the lives of even more children.

For more on Office 365 at Operation Smile see the case study.

10.8: Open a specific browser based on the URL

Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. For everything else I use Safari.

There is this nifty free app called LinCastor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL. Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.

In LinCastor (which you need to double-click twice to fully open for editing):

  • Add a new URL scheme
  • Choose AppleScript handler

Paste the following code in, (replacing the stub code at the bottom):

on handle_url(args)
if (|URL| of args starts with "https://mail.google.") then
tell application "Google Chrome"
open location |URL| of args

Use Get Info to See Information About Multiple Fil...

When doing a regular get info, you will have a screen (the Inspector) that shows you some basic information about a file or folder. This screen changes as the file changes, so if you were downloading a file, as the download completes, the file displays an ever increasing size. To see this screen, use the Command key and the i key (Cmd + i). If you have multiple objects selected when using the key, you’ll see each show a summary in its own screen.
However, at times you’ll want to see a Summary Info screen, which shows information about multiple selected objects. This screen doesn’t change as the files that are selected change. To see this screen, highlight a number of files and then use the Command, Control and i keys concurrently (⌘^i) to see a screen as follows.

Today’s post was written by Michael Bouchet, vice president of Infrastructure Services at Reed Elsevier
Reed Elsevier is a world-leading provider of information solutions for professional customers.

Over the last months we’ve taken many steps towards enabling search-driven publishing for intranet sites in SharePoint Online. We enabled the Content Search Web Part (CSWP), the cross-site publishing feature, and a new group cache that improves the performance of the CSWP.
Now we’ve enabled two features that previously were available only in SharePoint Server 2013—the Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part (TRPWP) and faceted navigation.
Introducing the Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part
The Taxonomy Refinement Panel Web Part (TRPWP) is similar in both name and functionality to the Refinement Web Part (RWP). With the RWP, visitors can filter content that’s displayed on a page; for example, they can filter to display only items... | Read more »

The Azure Preview Portal now supports the automated creation of a basic or high-availability SharePoint farm in Microsoft Azure.

You can use your Azure subscription, an Azure trial subscription, or your MSDN subscription to set up your farm.
Setting up a farm in the basic configuration requires three servers: a domain controller, a SQL server, and a SharePoint server.
Setting up a farm in the high-availability configuration involves nine servers: two domain controllers, two SQL servers, a SQL Server quorum server, two SharePoint servers in the application tier, and two SharePoint servers in the front-end web tier.
For either of these two farms, you can specify... | Read more »

Lawyers at RTR, a criminal defense firm in Miami, Florida, had been using faxes, couriers, and an unreliable server—which impeded productivity. Then one of its lawyers introduced Microsoft Office 365, mobile devices, and smartphones. Now documents are stored online, lawyers access case files in court and at home, on any device, and they use simultaneous coauthoring to create briefs. Productivity is up by an estimated 25 percent.
For more, read the RTR case study.
