Content Editor Webpart JavaScript Error When Launching Rich Text Edit Form

Thought you Sharepoint (aka MOSS) 2007 fans might appreciate this entry. I am using a Win Server 2003 R2 with SQL 2008 stand alone environment with Sharepoint 2007 sp1 installed. When I try to launch the Rich Text editor, nothing happens. In the bottom left of my screen, an error is thrown, which is javascript related. Here is my error:

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6.4; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; Tablet PC 2.0; InfoPath.3)

Message: Invalid argument.

While it is different than Waldek's error in this post, it is of the same origin / root cause. Waldek's context was quite helpful to me, so I wanted to share it with you!

Data Visuals at Their Best: the Baby Name Voyager

Ok you Business Intelligence geeks out there; my brothers and sisters of the data presentation world; my peeps;
Take a look at the Baby Name Voyager
A data visualized representation of a century of baby name trends. I learned my name 'Laura' peaked in 1967 in Iowa, of all places. By clicking on a name of interest, you can get all sorts of nuggets of knowledge. While the visualization itself is a bit of a colorful eye sore (grey scale with a muted red for the selected name would have been my preference, ala Stephen Few style, I have to say the visualization is awful creative! Check it out and share your comments at :

Super Helpful Information on Sharepoint 2010 PowerShell Explained by Zach Rosenfield, Program Manager at Microsoft

Zach's very helpful post on SPModule is the area to focus on -- He really clearly identifies and provides the code to enable your usage of SPModule with your new Sharepoint 2010 beta install. It is because he covers the beta anomolies that I am really intrigued by his post. Thanks Zach!

Data Visualization on Twitter Chatter During SuperBowl

Was following up today on a conversation with a professor at Harvard who teaches (amongst other things) Data Visualization and Modeling, and this twitter example came up...The map shows the location and frequency of commonly used words in Super Bowl related messages.

Cool right? BI and data visualization is no longer contained to the humdrum main stream applications on the market. This was all done using Open Source environments and languages. And just scratches the surface of the future possibilities when we wrap our brains around using 2 D data in multi-dimensional graphical representations!

To Infer or Not; How to discriminate between conflicting hypothesises

Test of sidewiki to link to my blogs on blogger and another SEO link to my blog.

Bayesian inference is highly debated of recent since new research including Functional MRI test which revealed spatially specific attentional modulation in human primary visual cortex!!! A hypothesis I held for a long time without the means to do the primary research required to use a more objective method of induction like the scientific method postulates.

Thus, this new piece of data allow me to repeat my estimation in my degree of belief in my hypothesis' validity.

:) Aah, yes, and its only Tuesday!
