| 12/31/2012 | 0 Comments

It’s that time of the year again! Time to say goodbye to the outgoing year, 2012, and receive the new one, 2013, making all sort of resolutions that we never seem to be able to achieve and with good measure, since most of us are simply consumed with the daily grind that lifting our heads up to take a breather and see the forest from the trees seems difficult and sometimes downright impossible. 2012 however was a very good year and gave me tons of stuff to write about.

I say this every year – time flew by!  As my dad just told me, it seems to fly by faster the older you get.  It certainly does!  Today is December 31st and my sister & I are visiting my dad and his wife, and loving the few relaxing days away from home.  Along with relaxing with family, this is my favourite, if not humbling, part of the new year process: reviewing what I said I would do this year!

I received an email from one of my users seeking my help in clearing this issue. While posting an invoice, this error message popped up:   Upon running the Edit List for this invoice, I realized that it was due to an imbalance in Markdown Amount and corresponding distribution line.

There is an amazingly simpler yet highly informative post up on TECHNET portal, which proved very handy this morning. My systems admin reported to me that our SharePoint server ran out of storage for some reason unknown to him, but he could identify that it was SQL Server program files folder which consumed 80% of storage. I immediately knew what could be the reason.
