It Takes A Fork To Stir A Community…

It is nice to see the community talking.

There has been some talk about DotNetNuke and Windows Azure for quite some time, so the topic isn’t really new. However to learn about DNN putting specific effort and custom code into getting DNN Evoq running on Azure was - thought provoking.

Windows Azure has never been important to Sprocket Websites. We know what it is, we know what it does, but it just doesn’t fit our business model or our customer’s business model. We host numerous websites through PowerDNN and...

DNN Social - Introduction

New DotNetNuke Module - DNN Social

James Nagy 3 8043 Article rating: 5.0

I attended today’s DotNetNuke Webinar on Nebula – now known as DNN Social. We first learned about this exciting product at DNNWorld 2012 so we kind of knew that it was coming. Well, today it was announced and what a great product announcement it was! Navin Nagiah – CEO, and Will Morgenweck – Director Product Management, from DotNetNuke Corporation gave the presentation via Webinar today.

"Every day Internet users share 4 billion items on Facebook, 200 million items on Twitter and 1 billion items on Google+. Social has become a fundamental aspect of Internet life with over 90% of online adults using the social web daily."

Moved over 100 Websites and hiked over 4 miles this weekend

Tales of webserver migrations

James Nagy 0 4285 Article rating: No rating

We have been planning a server move for many months. Well, we had been planning to move one of our production servers this weekend, and the other one in a couple of weeks. However, communications went out to all our clients that this was the weekend of the move so we just moved both servers at once. I was a little nervous about this at first, as there were a total of four DotNetNuke installations to move, but in hindsight, I’m glad that it’s done now. There were domain names to coordinate and A records to change, moving many gigabytes of customer information including multiple SQL server databases (DotNetNuke and non-DotNetNuke alike) and a hundred other small things, but Don and I just rolled up our sleeves and...

Keeping up with DotNetNuke and DNN module upgrades

It can be a full time job!

James Nagy 1 11684 Article rating: 5.0

Like a lot of small businesses, Sprocket Websites sometimes suffers from the “Shoemaker’s kids have no shoes” syndrome. We spend a great deal of time working on our customer’s websites. From building new sites, to updating existing sites with new looks or functionality, to creating and posting new content and social media updates. It keeps us busy to say the least and sometimes we go a while working in the business before we can get back to working on the business a bit. Well a new module update spawned a whole bunch of work for me on our own website.

SQL Server 2005 Database Log File

Microsoft SQL Server

James Nagy 0 4917 Article rating: No rating

At 11:00pm last night I was notified that one of my servers was having a problem. I run a couple of site monitoring tools and Simon was the one that picked up the problem first. I got online and started a remote desktop session to the server and it connected, which normally when one of my servers isn’t running properly a RDC will fail. However, it connected and presented me with the “I’ve just had an unexpected reboot problem screen” and wanted me to tell it what happened. Well at this point I had no idea and thought about the irony of that particular screen as I filled in “unknown” into the restart reason box.

Susan and I get back to the Home Offices of Sprocket Websites every couple of months. We have been on a whirlwind tour of the country the last couple of weeks. Orlando, Phoenix, Chicago… However, it looks like it is going to slow down a bit in December, but November isn’t over just yet and I’ve got a couple of road trips coming up so I’ll keep you posted.

#ASCPAM11 – American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Annual Meeting 2011

ASCPAM 2011

James Nagy 0 5737 Article rating: No rating

Susan and I attend this event over the last several days in Phoenix, AZ. This was a professional conference for Susan, but for me it was a research exercise to check out the happenings in the pharmacy industry.

I checked out the exhibit hall to see what was going on. There were lots of drug manufactures, companies that produce pill counting machines and blister packs.M/p>

So going from DotNetNuke World 2011 #DNNWorld in Orlando Florida to the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Annual Meeting 2011 #ASCPAM11 is quite a difference experience indeed. I’m here this year at #ASCP to check out the exhibitors, study marketing trends, and get a feel for what is happening in the world of consulting pharmacists. Susan is here with me at this show as it is really a professional conference for her. Be sure to check back here for more information on how/why Sprocket is interested in the wonderful world of pharmacy.
