SharePoint Links of the Week, Feb. 15, 2013

Happy President's Day weekend (in the US, that is)--do you get Monday off? For your quick perusal, five SharePoint links that caught my eye this week:

For your visually minded CEO, CIO, and business analysts, the new Office Visio Stencil contains more than 300 icons to help you create visual representations of Microsoft Office or Microsoft Office 365 deployments including SharePoint 2013.

Winner of "Most Sensationalistic SharePoint-Related Blog Title of the Week," Chris Wright's post chews over the reason why we don't see SharePoint credited in Office 365 materials. It was a slow week, that's for sure.

Need to know about this hotfix/patch released on 2/12/13? Todd Klindt is on it: "SharePoint 2010 Navigation error introduced in August 2012 CU."

Impress your fellow commuters and whip out a little light SSL reading on the train home. Guaranteed to make sure no one looks over your shoulder. Spence Harbar's "Using SSL for Central Administration with SharePoint 2013" is worth reading not only because it's been updated for SharePoint 2013 but also because it has a link to a post he wrote several years ago (and has updated) relating to SharePoint 2010 and 2007 high availability, load balancing, and security.

Inspiring the slackers among us to get back into studying Windows PowerShell, Gary Lapointe's latest post "Announcing My SharePoint 2013 Custom Cmdlets" makes PowerShell and SharePoint sound like they go together like that candy ad for peanut butter and chocolate. Pretty much.  Happy SharePoint Day!
