Whidbey (AKA VS 2005) Beta 1 Unleashed
Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 has been released (release notes are here , and amazingly, MSDN documentation is here ). I have not installed it yet, but I really hope side by side installation with VS 2003 has been enabled, the previous pre-betas have been virtually non-functional. More posts as I play around...

Exception Management Block
I've posted code that simplifies catching and logging exceptions via a pluggable architecture (it's based on the Exception Management Application Block from Microsoft). There is a readme file in the “Misc” folder. Bear in mind that this is still a “Work In Progress”, I will release... Read More...

Weekly Links -- New Post Category
Like most developers, I read. A lot. It comes with the job, and I really enjoy catching up on new technology, or examples of existing technology being used. As such, I am going to start a new category where I list out the stories/articles I've found most interesting for the week. Asynchronous Callbacks... Read More...

First Week Back at Work
This week was my first week back to work, and I already learned something new (that's why I love what I do...constantly learning)...that is, I learned it when I wasn't walking to and from work in the rain (5 minute walk, however it has rained here for about a week straight). The first project I've been... Read More...

Wherefore Art Thou Google Ranking?
I normally wouldn't get in a tizzy about something as fickle as a Google ranking, however I did take a little pride in knowing that I owned the top spot for both “Jayson Knight” and “Jayson Blog”. Well, no longer. I don't even know what my ranking is now, I got sick of hitting... Read More...

Gainfully Employed Again
I have accepted a position with a large local financial company (if you've even heard of Charlotte, you can guess that it's one of two, and your first guess is probably correct) as a .Net developer. I'm still a little hazy on the actual details, we went over a lot of stuff during the interviews, but... Read More...

.Text Multiple Blog Installation Complete
I have finally set up the .Text multiple blog aggregate page . And of course, I ran into quite a few stumbling blocks along the way (and have had no replies as of yet). I'm pleased by the fact that it's finally up and running, however I am not pleased with how I had to set it up. Apparently, to run ... Read More...

How To Increase the Number of Concurrent Internet Explorer Downloads
I have had my first paying publication (it's always nice to actually get paid for stuff, and to be honest, I didn't even realize I was going to be paid for this submission until well after I submitted it...I didn't do it for the money). It's a short blurb in the June issue of “ Windows and .Net... Read More...

The Trouble with Rover Revealed
While it's hardly news (article is dated 02/20/2004), I've always wondered what happened on Mars with the rover...it just took a while to find any info about it. As is usually the norm with computers/software issues, the problem was somewhere between the chair and the computer. Favorite quote from the... Read More...
