System Pages Shortcuts

I recently found a list of SharePoint system pages that someone compiled, and thought "man, it would be nice to have these in IE as favorites". So... I put together a little vb script that adds them. Before you run the script, open it up and change the rooturl variable to point to your site collection. This only works for IE, of course.

Do as I say, not as I do

After spending a looong time trying to figure out why my code behind for my page layout wasn't updating after making a simple change and doing an STSDEV Release build, I found out the hard way that you have to do a DebugBuild before you do a ReleaseBuild, otherwise it won't update the dll. Save yourself some frustration and add this to your list of todos each time you do a release in STSDEV.

Thanks to fellow SharePointers blogger Grant for providing with technical/emotional guidance as I troubleshooted this issue.
