Are Personal Websites/Blogs Passé?
I have a love/hate relationship with my personal website/blog. When I started this site almost 9 years ago, social networking wasn’t even in the vocabulary of the internet, and personal branding was a must have. Fast forward to 2012, and Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn are ubiquitous, and Tumblr is a... Read More...

Windows Live Writer Beta
It took me a couple of tries to get the new Windows Live beta package installed on my machine; the secret fix for me was to enable the Windows Firewall service (I disable it since I’m behind other firewalls), so if your install is failing, turn on the Firewall service. You can turn it off again after... Read More...

Matriculating Into Columbia University, Moving to New York
I have the proud distinction of being able to say that I have been accepted to Columbia University (yeah, that Columbia...the Ivy League one) and will be finishing up my degree there. I'm still in shock that it's actually happened, that I get to fulfill my lifelong dream of attending an Ivy League... Read More...

I'm Drowning in Paper, So I Bought a Tablet
So another semester has drawn to a close…this semester was my first full one; I did 17 hours and I can say one thing for certain: It’s a lot easier to focus at age 30 than it was at 18, and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Finals were pretty gruesome, but overall it was a successful... Read More...

Vista Gigabit Performance Issues: Fixed
Like quite a few folks, I've been plagued by issues with Vista on a Gigabit LAN, namely seeing throughput that's a fraction of what it should be. I tried the fixes Scott Hanselman outlined in his excellent Vista Gigabit post to no avail. The Google gods must have been smiling on me yesterday... Read More...

Obama Picks UNCC As His Last Stop Before Election
Barack Obama has chosen UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the university I'm attending) as his last stop before the elections on Tuesday. It's pretty telling when a state that can only be described as historically very red is not only a democratic candidate's last stop, but... Read More...

eTrade Commercial: Mobile Trading Baby
I don't know why I find this commercial so hilarious, but I can't help but giggle out loud whenever I see it. Brilliant piece of marketing on the part of eTrade. Read More...

CS Tidbit #28: Creating Nested Navigation Bar Items
In my previous CS Tidbit, I outlined how to add an archive page to your blogs to free up some sidebar real estate while still giving readers access to our post history. Of course, now that we have this in place, how do we let our readers know where it is? In the past, adding links to one of the standard... Read More...

CS Tidbits #27: Add An Archive Page For Blogs
It's been a while since I've posted any CS Tidbits, but now that Community Server 2008.5 has been released, it's time to get back in gear and post some tips and tricks that I'm learning as I get to know this new release. If you're like me and have been blogging for a non-trivial amount... Read More...

JaysonKnight.com Upgraded To Community Server 2008.5
Community Server 2008.5 was released recently . The half dozen or sites that I've upgraded over the weekend went without a hitch; the new Windows Client upgrader application is very easy to use...the toughest part is waiting for all of your site files to finish FTP'ing back up to your site. The... Read More...
