This site is here to provide information about how to get the most out of Microsoft Project. You will find sections on writing macros to automate Microsoft Project, a brief discussion on calculated fields and a section which documents the new features available in Project 2002.

Project Versions:

Project comes in many different versions. The information here is rather brief. To be honest, the difference between Project 2002 and 2003 (at least in the standard version) is so small that I hardly bother to upgrade.

If you are using Project Server, the differences are more meaningful. I would even classify Project Server 2003 as a just a big service pack for 2002 which fixes many of the problems and bugs which were in 2002. That and an upgrade to WSS.

VBA and Macros:

There are many things that people would like project to do which are not built in to the standard tool. Fortunately, there is a way to get project to do almost anything that you want. This is through the use of VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) which is Project's built-in programming language. It is common with the other Microsoft Office Tools such as Excel and Word so that you can interoperate with those tools to extend the capabilities of Project. I have a number of examples of this available to get you started with it.

Other Macro Information:

Example with Excel - A free Monte Carlo Simulation macro which illustrates how Project and Excel can work together.

Macros or Calculated Fields - Project 2000 introduced calculated fields. What they allow you to do is use any of the custom fields (Text, Number, Date, Cost, Flag ...) and use a formula to calculate what is displayed in that field. They are often a good replacement for a macro. This page describes when you would prefer one over the other.

Calculated Field FAQ - There are some common problems people have with Calculated fields. T his FAQ answers some of the Frequently Asked Questions.

Scheduling with Excel:

This part of the site is mostly concerned with Microsoft Project, but that doesn't mean you have to use it. Often I find that other tools such as Powerpoint or even Excel are more suited to a particular situation. If you fall in this category I've put together a sample file which shows how you can use things like conditional formatting and formulas to use Excel as a scheduling tool.

How IsoHunt's New Site Saved the Day for Users

In late 2013 an experienced torrent website isoHunt revealed its closure by the MPAA, yet merely a couple of days later on a duplicate website showed up to enter its significant footwears. Currently, two years later on, isohunt.com.co - a website that has absolutely nothing to do with the initial - is the 11th most preferred torrent website around the world. It's a polarizing success tale improved debate.

When prominent torrent website isoHunt shutdown on October 17, 2013, it noted completion of a period.

Having actually sustained a several-years-long lawful fight with the MPAA, proprietor Gary Fung smartly worked out an escape of his possibly crippling copyright violation situation, ultimately opting for a heading quantity of $110 million, something (luckily) he'll never ever need to pay.

The end outcome was that one of the Internet's favored torrent websites, with a proprietor that was both favored as well as noticeable, closed its doorways for great leaving individuals without their normal use. Seeing a possibility in hesitating, a torrent-friendly team took possession of the day.

The website is a loosened duplicate of isoHunt - graphically comparable yet with no links to the initial isoHunt group, with a goal to offer previous individuals a rate to discuss documents.

"When we released isoHunt we acquired the level of regarding 200k uniques each day in regarding a week. Prior to Christmas we struck 500k uniques each day. Afterwards we've been fluctuating however the total pattern stays up," an isohunt.com.co admin notifies.

"Of course, several individuals are looking for isohunt.com as well as that drives them to us. We do whole lots of things to maintain individuals satisfied as well as enhance the website regularly.

While it's absolutely most likely that countless individuals are currently pleased at having an acquainted looking website to constant, the exact same could not be claimed regarding individuals which dealt with the initial isoHunt. When the duplicate website introduced some rather naturally really felt that it was unjustly trading on isoHunt's picture, and also their effort.

"We attempted to call previous isoHunt participants (mediators as well as admins) to obtain entailed with the brand-new website however we were declined in an extremely impolite method," the isohunt.com.co admin clarifies.

They have actually added so a lot right into the initial site it's uncomfortable for them to see an aspirant isohunt in an existing problem. We could not get to the exact same elevations as isoHunt yet we'll absolutely attempt to produce a brand-new wave of isohunt fans and also make a brand-new residence for them.".

When websites come out of no place and also rapidly begin obtaining huge, individuals doubt their intentions. Or, God forbid, do they have something also larger up their sleeve?

"Since honeypots have actually been developed over the last couple of years some individuals believed (and also still believe) our website is a honeypot made by MAFIAA," the admin clarifies.

"It's fascinating to review remarks where individuals presume we function for a federal government company like the FBI, or a company like the MPAA as well as others. As well as we do not attempt to urge these individuals right into utilizing isohunt.com.co. Merely a suggestion," he includes.

Regardless of the problems, the appeal of the website is expanding as well as while some will not utilize the website, others have actually placed the previous and also various other fears behind them.

"There are great deals of individuals stating we made them healthier with the brand-new isohunt. When they located out the initial website shut down several routine individuals really felt like a massive component of their lives had actually simply vanished.

The isohunt.com.co admin states he thinks that the brand-new website is in itself symbolic of torrenting.

Others sign up with and also proceed discussing when the initial participant can not do it any longer. We'll be satisfied for brand-new individuals to sign up with the new-wave isohunt area as well as proceed discussing," he ends.

Lawyers Not Sure About the Legality of Pirate Bay Blockades

In a spots claim over the validity of the Dutch Pirate Bay blockade, Attorney general Van Peursem has actually suggested that the instance ought to be sent out to EU Court of Justice. To name a few points, the Attorney general desires the EU Court to rule whether The Pirate Bay interacts prohibited material to the general public.

Early in 2013 The Court of The Hague bied far its choice in a long term situation which had actually recently required 2 Dutch ISPs, Ziggo as well as XS4ALL, to obstruct The Pirate Bay.

The Court ruled versus regional anti-piracy clothing BREIN, ending that the blockade was limited as well as inadequate the ISPs' business liberties.

Reacting to the decision both ISPs swiftly unblocked the website as well as different other Dutch ISPs did the same.

The Hollywood-backed team took its situation all the method to the Supreme Court as well as today Supporter General Van Peursem released his verdict after a mindful evaluation.

The Supporter General suggests the Supreme Court to remain the process in between BREIN and also the Net companies in order to look for explanation from the EU Court of Justice on many issues.

The initial concern that calls for a European evaluation is whether the Pirate bay is in fact interacting prohibited material to everyone. After that the EU Court must rule whether ISPs could be bought to obstruct the website on various other premises, if this isn't really the situation.

A choice at the European degree will certainly be very important, as it might additionally impact court orders in various other nations, such as the UK, Italy as well as Belgium.

When the concerns are solved at the EU Court, the Supporter General recommends to renovate the whole test keeping in mind that The Court of The Hague was also rigorous when it ended that the blockade was disproportional and also inadequate.

The Proponent General's suggestions is not expected, so it's not yet specific whether the situation will certainly be described to the EU Court of Justice. Tweakers note a lot of situations the referrals are complied with the Supreme Court.

BBC wants to delete Top Gear's IMDB page from search engines

BBC Worldwide has actually sent out 10s of hundreds of takedown demands to Google recently, yet not all stated web links are as bad as they declare. The business is targeting the IMDb web pages of numerous of its very own programs, consisting of Leading Equipment and also The Video game, as well as one of Dailymotion's homepages.

In an initiative to make piracy much less noticeable, copyright owners send out lots of countless takedown notifications to Google on a monthly basis.

Not all of these demands are as exact as they must be.

Because of the high variety of commonly automaticed notifications and also that copyright owners do not examine the credibility of all demands, there are lots of doubtful takedowns.

Recently BBC Worldwide stated a document variety of borrowing connected to Google, targeting greater than 25,000 pages. We determined to undergo the web links as well as it had not been tough to discover numerous Links that are plainly not borrowing.

One of the notifications targets the IMDb web pages of Leading Equipment, The Video game and also Leading Falls short.

The Net Motion picture Data source is just one of the prime sources for film as well as TELEVISION followers to obtain details and also does not host or connected to borrowing material, so taking these web pages offline simply harms the BBC.

Possibly a lot more distressing is that the exact same notification additionally specifies the British house of the video clip website Dailymotion as "infringing." While this web page could have connecteded to unapproved product in the previous, it's definitely does not necessitate the extraction of the whole homepage.

This notification is not a separated occurrence. In recent times we have actually highlighted plenty of instances of takedown demands that censor legit material, commonly harming website traffic for the influenced websites.

Fortunately is that Google shows up to have white-listed many domain names, consisting of the IMDb as well as Dailymotion. This indicates that while the web links stated by the BBC were not eliminated, much less noticeable websites could not be so blessed.

As stated formerly the DMCA notification rise is an expanding issue, with Google now getting rid of greater than a million web links daily generally. Because Google and also various other web sites cannot perhaps validate every DMCA case, the issue is simply anticipated to boost.
