Sharepoint Maintenance Mode

I always forget how to get into maintenance mode on Sharepoint pages to close / remove webparts that are (potentially) causing issues. Sometimes you will even get an error message that provides a link to the maintenance mode pages. There is also some convoluted way of getting into maintenance mode, but I can never remember it.

An easy way to get into maintenance mode is to simply add ?contents=1 to the URL. For example, if your URL was http://sharepointsite.com/pages/default.aspx you would go to http://sharepointsite.com/pages/default.aspx?contents=1

New House – Hurricane Ike

We closed on our new house Friday, September 5th and moved in unexpectedly on Thursday, September 11th! We originally planned to close on the 4th, but delays from the Seller’s bank caused a 1-day delay on the closing of the house. We bought the house that we wanted in Valley Ranch, but were negotiating with the bank and were unsure we were going to come to terms that we could both agree upon by our set closing date.
