Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
This weekend, I took my boys on a camping trip. No, it wasn’t a trip in a camper. We were roughing it in a tent which brings back the fond memories of when I was younger in the Boy Scouts.

Microsoft released an experimental tool that allows a consistent method to obtain diagnostic information from .NET Core applications. This new tool is called
dotnet-monitor. Depending on the target environment, the setup can differ, but the endpoints for the information collected are the same. This includes on the native OS or inside of a container.
Ever since Visual Studio Code was released, it has quickly gained popularity. It’s a lightweight code editor that is very extensible and has great performance.

The Samsung Galaxy website and product offering appears to be very misleading. Sure the brand new Samsung Galaxy S20 UW is a new base version of the Galaxy series and contains 128MB inside the phone. However, the website touts that it can be expanded to 1TB which had many, including myself, looking for the slot. Instead, where the card usually goes is nothing more than the Verizon 5G SIM card.

Since this phone was for my wife who still had 40% room left on her 128MB micro SD card that was in her Galaxy S9, the space is not a concern for me. We’ll make do as that’s why we use cloud storage. However, if this is a concern for you, buyer beware.Read More
