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?
DevExpress and Microsoft announced a partnership today to offer CodeRush Xpress for free. At the present time it’s only available for non-express versions of Visual Studio and will only work with C# (per their post). I’m sure the other support will be just around the corner. If you’re interested be sure to download Xpress here.Read More
The Microsoft .NET Framework received a new logo and a revised site recently. The new logo can be found at http://blogs.msdn.com/sayanghosh/archive/2008/10/26/new-net-logo.aspx. The new site can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/net/. Nice logo! It’s very slick and fits within the other modern day Microsoft logos.Read More
I am expecting a package from the USPS and have been since Thursday. The package was too large for my mailbox, so I received a re-delivery notice. On Thursday night, I signed it and placed it in my mailbox. It was picked up on Friday and the package wasn’t on the truck for redelivery. Thinking that maybe they didn’t bring the package out for redelivery on Friday just because, I waited for Saturday. Sure it was pouring rain all day, but I never received my package on Saturday either. Today I called the post office. They told me that they didn’t have the package there and it was likely at the regional post office for delivery. I called there and they took down my tracking number but said it was impossible for them to track the package on their computer system. I can’t believe the USPS doesn’t have a software package to allow better tracking. They have to rely on the people that work there. I was told that the gentleman that worked the weekend shift wouldn’t be in until late morning and when he came in, they’d ask him if he knew where it was. They finally took my phone number and said they’d call back.Read More
So I’m not going to be at the Microsoft PDC this year primarily because of all the work I have to catch up on. However, I can participate virtually at NotAtPDC.com. If you’re going to be at the PDC, be sure to blog about it and tweet your URL to @NotAtPDC. Also, there will be other virtual presentations and such that will be done throughout the week. I’m likely going to do a talk tomorrow sometime. We’re still ironing out the details.Read More
