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?

I’ve been using IE 7 now for over a week and noticed a few bugs.
- Visiting some web sites that utilize the browscaps.ini file can cause unusual 500 errors for the sites. I’ve seen this while visiting www.skmmenu.com. This has been documented on the skmmenu project board at http://www.gotdotnet.com/workspaces/messageboard/thread.aspx?id=a8ee64df-8f2a-483f-8594-10aaa66988ce&threadid=29bb6250-e618-4b99-b382-942ae04d18d1. It appears that IE 7 has a version listed as 7.0b. The final release will drop the ‘b’.
- IE has always stored the URL history in IE. It still does with IE7 unless you disable it. However, if you use the URL drop-down box and choose URLs, at random (and speed of clicking), you will receive error messages like ‘“www.msn.com” is offline’.
- When using add-ins like the Google Toolbar, when popups are blocked, the browser changes to the second tab.
I’ll be moving in next week and will not be online. I’ll be back online the week of August 14th.Read More

While doing some browsing this afternoon, I came across PixelPass. With this, bloggers add “one line of code” to their template pages of their blogging engine to create an obscure image over the blog. For readers to read the blog, they must click the link and pay. Personally, I think this company is smart in doing what they are doing as I’m assuming they are one of the first ones. They’ll be rich soon and laughing at me. However, I don’t think you should force someone to pay just to read your blog. If that’s the case, write an article and publish it somewhere. What do you think?Read More
