Status update

Hi all,
I have been more or less absent the past few weeks, and just wanted to let you know the status.

I have published many solutions over the past years, and I get a lot of questions related to setup problems, feature requests and requests regarding updating older solutions to support new browser versions or new jQuery releases.

I have always tried to answer all requests and questions, but must draw the white flag and say that I no longer can find time to answer them all – I simply cannot spend every night in front of my computer. I have a full time job working with SharePoint, and I feel I have overdosed on SharePoint a bit lately.

I have to prioritize a bit differently, and spending time with my wife and kids outrank blogging…

I will still be answering comments and try my best to maintain the solutions I have already published, but it will be less activity regarding new solutions for a while.

Stay tuned, and it will come some new stuff – just not so often as it used to.

Alexander

  1. Enjoy a break. You deserve it.

    Your selfless efforts for the SharePoint community are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for the time you have devoted to us!

  2. Good for you! Maybe posting things to a community site, like codeplex, where others could help contribute to solutions might help ease the load.

  3. Hi Alexander – as a regular to your blog – and your work – i want to thank you for such great unique and quality solutions – I don’t know of any other blog that has been so useful and inspiring as yours to me on sharepoint – I will be buying you a pint.

  4. Thank you for providing us with such a helpful and free solutions Blog over the years. Your solutions have made me shine in my workplace. I’ve seen Blogs for people who receive MVP’s and they don’t come close to your skill level. We will consider it a privilege if you do provide us with a new solution. Work/Life Balance.

  6. Alexander,

    I also want to thank you for what you’ve given us. It’s been extraordinarily useful and invaluable. I just donated some money to show my appreciation (long overdue). I hope you can find a happy median between your family and the code you put out there for us. Thanks again!

  7. Alex;

    Your contributions have been and will be hugely appreciated no matter the frequency! I echo all of the compliments already posted and your beer is on the way! Enjoy the time with your family and I look forward to your posts and responses whenever they appear.

  8. Alexander,

    being another regular on your blog I’d also like to say thanks for all the wonderful solutions you have provided so far. Before I found out what is possible with Sharepoint and JQuery – which is 100% credited to you – I merely looked at Sharepoint as just another useless piece of software coming from M$ with no added value to the customer.

    Nowadays I actually enjoy working with Sharepoint and showing others the little tidbits that make life and collaboration easier.

    I look forward to read you again on the net.

  9. What can I say that has not already been said. I would like say Thank You very much for your help and it is great that you will be spending more time with your family. Family should always be number one in all we do. So relax enjoy your family, answer questions and solutions when you can.
    Thanks again and look forward to still checking out your blog.

  11. *Holding back tears* – Thank you for all that you have given to the SharePoint community. Your contributions have helped us, like many companies, progress beyond the boring OOTB solution. Both you and your work are truly invaluable.

    I can unfortunately only approve 1 week of vacation for you. Any more than that, and we’ll be buying our own pints to drown our SharePoint woes. πŸ™‚

    Please enjoy your time off, and we’ll look forward to your return.

  12. Speaking for myself i have to say thank you very much for all your efforts – your solutions have worked flawlessly (admitedly i was one of those pulling attention from your family with questions) so enjoy – hope that you have all the success you deserve.
