I am getting to know OneNote now that I am a laptop user. It has been very useful in meetings and very good for organizing my thinking/working, but I learned a couple new things last week that are worth noting:

  • You can capture audio as a note. I am finding this very useful when listening to .NetRocks shows and I want to save a small part of it that I can get back to quickly. I can add my own text comments right there as well as relevant URLs, etc. Just change the audio input source to Wave Out Mix in the Options dialog box.
  • You can capture screenshots into a note (Insert Menu -> Screen Clipping). This is only in OneNote Service Pack 1. I am currently in the design phase of an application and this is very handy. I can take a screenshot into the note and then share the note in meetings with the team. You can even do this when OneNote is closed using the OneNote icon in the system tray.

.Net Framework Service Pack 1 Postback Problem

I applied the .Net Service Pack 1 to a Windows 2003 server last night and the web application served from it stopped submitting postbacks. When the login page was sent to the client (IE 6 on XP, 98, and 2003 that’s all I had to test with at the time), the javascript was preventing the postback from the submit button. The validators all worked, but the page just would not post back. Click the button…nothing. The development machine with XP Pro and the Service Pack 1 did not have the same problems. I ended up rolling back the patch to get things working as it was late and I didn’t find any solutions right away, but this morining I found some other possible workarounds.

There is a discussion of the problem and several potential solutions on the Channel 9 site.
