jaysonBlog Turns Three
I cannot believe it's been 3 years since I first decided to build my own blogging engine as a coding exercise one lonely night back in 2003, and here I am still pounding away at the keyboard in an attempt to keep my 5 loyal readers somewhat entertained. The most notable thing that happened to my site... Read More...

Bon Voyage Weblogs.Asp.Net Feed
During my last round of Rss feed pruning, I finally deleted weblogs.asp.net (it's been a long time coming). Too many of the following: Duplicate posts about the same news item. Posts linking to other posts on weblogs.asp.net essentially saying "yeah me too" or "so-and-so posted about the following."... Read More...

Scam Update -- Final Chapter (And Other Stuff)
One of those sleepless nights, and I realized I never did really sew up what happened with all the scam BS that happened a few months ago. In short, nothing really happened. My bank A) transferred most of the funds I had lost into my savings account and B) allowed me to cash it all out. I appreciate... Read More...

Vista Doesn't Like My New Memory DIMM
So I made the first of my readiness upgrades for Vista today: I installed a second 1 gig DIMM of RAM in my machine...same brand and speed as the existing DIMM, lo and behold the memory test in Vista actually dropped 2/10ths of a point, from 4.2 to 4.0 (~5% decrease). I wasn't expecting it to go up, but... Read More...

Getting Ready For Vista -- Geek Wishlist
Now that the Vista release is officially right around the corner, I have an excuse to make some hardware upgrades to my workstation box (no, I don't really need new hardware, but then again who really does). After doing some research, I was actually quite pleasantly surprised to find that my almost 2... Read More...

Static Doesn't Mean Thread Safe
K. Scott Allen recently posted an interesting blurb on the thread safety-ness of static (Shared) members in .Net: One misunderstanding I often see is "if I make this member static it will be thread safe".
