SharePoint's new fine grained permission model is really great, but I was a little disappointed to find out that you can't add permissions to an item without breaking its inheritance.
In NTFS security it is possible to do exactly that, as long as the change doesn't interrupt the original permissions.

Integrating your CRM application into your portal can definitely add to productivity, efficiency, and it sure looks good.MOSS uses BDC (Business Data Catalog) to integrate line of business application (CRM in our case), making it available through its search and web parts. (more info on BDC here)
The thing is, writing those long, complicated, exhausting and error-prone, XML definition files for BDC is not fun, to say the least. Especially when dealing with...
