Blog Sabbatical

Wondering why there was a long gap between my previous two blog posts? Give me a few minutes, and I'll get you caught up on what I've been doing for the past year.

Last Day with Microsoft

Today is my last day with Microsoft and it is with a heavy heart that I now say farewell to past and present teammates, coworkers, and managers...

New Blog Location - http://www.technologytoolbox.com/blog/jjameson

As I mentioned in my previous post , today is my last day with Microsoft. I still have a lot of work to do in setting up my new website, but at this point, I've completed enough to continue blogging the "Random Musings of Jeremy Jameson": http:...

Leaving Microsoft

Last Thursday, I informed my manager that I have decided to leave Microsoft to pursue other opportunities. My last day will be September 2nd -- just a few days shy of my 11 year anniversary date with the company (my first day was September 5, 2000...

New Blog Template and Styling

Last Thursday, I mentioned a problem that would occasionally occur with the formatting on my blog posts (but only when viewing the default page -- listing the most recent posts -- and not when viewing individual posts). Tonight I thought I should spend...

Blog Post Formatting Issues

Earlier this week, a colleague of mine was building out his own version of the Jameson Datacenter based on a variety of posts I've written in the past. Over an IM conversation, he mentioned that some of my posts tend to run off the page -- making them...

You'll Have to Pry That Money from My Cold Dead Hands

I've been using Microsoft Money for as long as I can remember. Well, actually I can remember using Quicken at some point before switching to Money. Heck, I even remember tracking my finances in an Excel workbook before that. I just checked my Money...

Escaping from Double-Click Purgatory

A few weeks ago I started experiencing an incredibly frustrating problem on my laptop. When I clicked the mouse , instead of responding with a single-click (e.g. to select an item), it acted as if I double-clicked the mouse button. At first I thought...

Analyzing My MSDN Blog

According to my blog dashboard, this will be post #150 for my MSDN blog. So this morning I thought I would do something a little different by providing some analysis on my blog. I extracted the data from Community Server into an Excel spreadsheet so...

Is AutoCorrect making me stupid or just plain lazy?

Yesterday's post got me thinking about something. Do you find yourself occasionally typing one word when you are actually thinking of a different word that sounds the same? A faint recollection from one or more of my English classes long ago suggested...

The Original "Jameson Datacenter"

This morning I was doing some cleanup of my documents folder and I stumbled across a rather old Visio document that showed the beginnings of what I now refer to as the "Jameson Datacenter" (a.k.a. my home lab). For some geeky reason, seeing this again...

New MSDN Theme on My Blog

I noticed this morning that the new color scheme released this past week on MSDN has made its way into our Community Server template (and thus onto my blog, since I'm currently using the default "skin"). I'm still not sure how I feel about the combination...

Minor Setback

I haven't blogged in almost 8 weeks. Ouch. However, I like to think I have a good excuse -- at least for a good portion of that time. On April 17, 2009, I broke my left leg in 6 places skiing one of my favorite runs at Mary Jane called "Outhouse...

Who is this guy?

Ugh! I reserved my MSDN blog address in May of 2005 and almost two years later I am sitting down to author my first blog post. I joined Microsoft in September of 2000 after a series of interesting experiences in the telecommunications and healthcare...
