Evil Dead The Musical

Evil Dead The Musical

Evil Dead The Musical starts this Friday, May 28th, at the Loudoun campus of NOVA. If you loved the movie The Evil Dead or if you just love cheesy horror movies you will enjoy this show. As the Technical Director for the show I am extremely excited by all the hard work and dedication put in by the entire crew to see this technically challenging show come together in all its splendidly bloody goodness. Enjoy the show!

Rating: (R) for simulated violence and strong language.

Synopsis:
Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college students who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror story, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now”, and “Do the Necronomicon”.

Errors Saving and Checkin In Excel/PowerPoint files in SharePoint using CAC Card

Users accessing SharePoint using a CAC card may experienced problems with saving and checking in Excel and PowerPoint documents on the SharePoint servers.  When attempting to do either a dialog box appeared stating that "The web server is currently busy please try again later."


Environment:
-Office 2007
-Server 2008
-SharePoint 2007 SP2
-IIS 7.5


The problem turned out to be that a setting, uploadreadaheadsize, is defaulted to 48kb.  This is not big enough for the website to read in the entire header when a CAC certificate is added to it.  To fix the problem I completed the following steps.


1. Start->Run-> runas /user:Administrator cmd
cd c:\Windows\systems32\inetsrv


2. appcmd.exe set config  -section:system.webServer/serverRuntime /uploadReadAheadSize:"200000000"  /commit:apphost


This updates IIS to ensure it can read all the data in the headers.
