Is it possible to do a Gantt chart with a 3rd (or more) dimension?

I'm working on project planning a multi-year, multi-department initiative. Each department will complete identical tasks but on staggered schedules. I'm hoping to find a way where I can create a single dataset that will then display task schedules across department, and department schedules across tasks. I am using microsoft project and microsoft excel. content sample inside [more inside]

Is there a good, NON-JAVA, non-MS project management tool out there?

I will be starting to work on several small, overlapping projects soon and need a lightweight tool. WANT: Ability to manage 2-3 resources (mostly me, really), schedule tasks, create and output Gantt charts. DO NOT WANT: The security hole of suck known as Java, so Project Libre, OpenProj and the like are right out. MEH, WILL ACCEPT IF NEEDED: Cloud app. I really prefer desktop programs for various reasons, but if the best solution is on the cloud, so be it. A PLEA: I'm going to a presentation on Office 365 tonight with a devotee of MS Project. Please arm me in advance against the call of the dark side! [more inside]

A Microsoft product that thinks it knows what's best for me? Perish!

When I do Add -> Existing Web Site in Visual Studio 2008, if the existing site was created in an earlier version of .net (say 2.0 and I'm running 3.5) Visual Studio automatically starts an update wizard to convert the site to 3.5. How do I turn off this behavior so that it simply imports the web site without updating it? I know this is possible because the first time I did this it happened flawlessly, but at the time I didn't un-check the "automatically update sites next time" check box. Gah.

Smart books for a smart guy using Project 2007?

Are there any good books on MS Project 2007 out there? My brother-in-law, an experienced project manager, has been using MS Project 2003 for a while and is pretty confident with the basics, but he wants to learn more, especially as he's considering upgrading to Project 2007. I'm pointing him to some local trainers, but I'd also like to find some decent books so he has the alternative of teaching himself as much as possible.

In search of MS Project Guru

Can MS Project automatically calculate (in days, weeks, etc.) the amount of time a task is past its deadline? (I know...probably a really easy question. But, I can't for the life of me find the answer). [more inside]
