  • The New HP Digital Photography Commercials Rock!

    [Update] I finally found them on the HP website ...and I knew I recognized the band in the's The Kinks. If you haven't seen these commercials yet, run and check them out...they're great! Does anyone know where I can find these online? Very creative and well done, not to mention a great song that accompanies it.
  • Obligatory 9/11 Post -- Where Were You on 9/11?

    Wow...has it been 3 years already? Where was I when all the commotion started happening? I was actually in the middle of a job interview ...ok, not actually in the middle of it, but getting ready for it. Not a good indicator as to what the outcome of the interview was going to be, and I guess the interview ended up being more of a formality than anything else as they obviously weren't going to hire anyone new until they got a read on the economy (or lack thereof as it turned out...they made the right...
  • Temperament Sorter

    Stumbled across this test (yeah, registration required...before you register, wtf is this? ), but really dug the results (seems to be pretty right on) is my temperament according to this test (hope I live up to the results :-)): Your Temperament Is Rational Rationals, are the problem solving temperament, particularly if the problem has to do with the many complex systems that make up the world around us. Rationals might tackle problems in organic systems such as plants and animals, or in mechanical...
  • GMail Gripes

    Found some gripes with GMail (actually was going to write about 3 gripes, but they just fixed one of them recently...not letting you navigate away from an unsent email without prompting you to save it/send it/whatever...similar to what .Text does for posts). The gripe is: Email address autocomplete only works for multiple addresses seperated with a comma (if the previous email address is autocompleted, a comma is automatically inserted after the address, for email addresses keyed in manually, it...
  • All's Well That Ends Well

    My most recent contract is up (funny how a 3 month contract ends after...well...3 months). It was an interesting experience, plus I got to work with some of the fine folks from Avanade on a medium size project towards the end. Nice guys, and damn good at what they do for a living. So what's next for Jayson? To be honest, I'm a little burnt out on coding lately...I'm probably going to take some time off for family/friends/pets/etc as I've barely seen any of them lately. I'll be doing some small project...
  • BizTalk Almighty

    I ran across this post today and wanted to (briefly) drop my two cents. I worked with BizTalk 2000 way back in the day (circa 2001) and immediately fell in love with the product (enough to run out and get certified ( 663335/NotANumber) on it). There was a small problem though: No one had jumped on the BizTalk bandwagon yet, so my experiences were limited to outside consulting for companies that were looking to implement some sort of EDI solution without the hassle of...well...writing one themselves...
  • Olympics -- Men's High Bar Competition

    I have refrained from commenting on the Olympics thusfar, I'm all for our American gymnasts, however the Russian guy so clearly schooled the rest of the field on high bar tonight, yet didn't even get a medal (even after 10 minutes of booing from the crowd for the unfair scoring of his routine). Anyone who watched this competition tonight knows exactly what I'm talking about. 'nuff said.
  • Blah Part Three -- Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS)

    I was going to let my latest experience with Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) fall through the cracks and not even blog about it (not exactly proud of the fact that I contacted them, but more on that later), but the experience was, needless to say, downright comical. First a little background about me. For those of you who don't know, I worked for MS for a year in their Developer Support division (it was supposed to be a way to get my foot in the door...obviously, it didn't work out. It actually...
  • Got GMail?

    Huge ups to Travis for hooking me up with a GMail invite. I had it in my head that I was going to switch over to gmail only (no more Outlook), however, Lookout for Outlook pretty much negates the reasoning behind this. The only compelling reason to use gmail is the fact that I can access my email from I am contemplating setting up some rules in Outlook to forward specific mail to my gmail account, as well as keeping it in my .pst file as well. This way, I can have access to important...
  • Resharper -- Anyone Have any Thoughts on this Product?

    Sounding board for anyone who has any rants/raves about JetBrains Resharper VS.NET add-in. I am downloading a demo as I write this.
