In Relief

As those who track my movements via social media know, I have just completed a stint as the percussionist for the chamber orchestra for Silver Finch Arts Collective's 2014 Capitol Fringe production of the original opera "A Fire in Water." The co-composer, a good acquaintance (and now I think I can say friend, as we have bonded over a quintet of commutes to and from the theatre over such topics as men's footwear, Batman, where to get the best food and what the Hell is wrong with drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians in DC) and Facebook friend Michael Oberhauser put out a call last month for anyone who knew of a percussionist that could do as I have just done. I was hesitant at first, but when I saw the schedule and knew that my dear Francesca would be out of the country for July that it was just the thing to keep me busy for the duration.

When Managed Metadata Term Sets are Missing from the Crawled Properties List in SharePoint Online

We interrupt the new Sci-Fi based format of this blog to impart a bit of SharePoint wisdom:

If you have managed metadata term sets that are part of a content type and they do not appear as a crawled property in the Search Admin, open a library where the content type is used and populate the missing field(s). Search apparently doesn't register those columns if there is no data to be registered.

I posted this because I could not find the direct answer to my question via Google. Maybe I didn't Google hard enough, but even still, here we are. Hope it helped.

To Infinitive and Beyond

I spent 10 minutes today comparing various Main Engineering set diagrams for various incarnations of the starship Enterprise (and the good ship Voyager) so I could make an informed decision before voting in this week's StarTrek.com poll. I don't vote in the poll every week, but there the call to action was in my Facebook timeline (sorted by Most Recent, of course; algorithm be damned) and I felt compelled to weigh in, but when I sat there staring at my options (NX-01, NCC-1701-A, -D, -E, aforementioned Voyager), I realized I could not properly differentiate in my head, so off to Google I went for a quick hop over to the Utopia Planitia site to look at the various illustrated and annotated set diagrams. This was not an easy choice, people.
