Default Interface Methods in C#: What Are Traits, and Why Are They Needed?
Curious to see what my fellow .Net developers/architects think of this new language feature that's been bandied about since at least early 2017, though it's now potentially slated to be included in C# 8.0. I have to admit, at first I didn't "get it" but I've been doing some... Read More...

Dashlane Password Manager: The One Password Manager to Rule Them All
Over the years I've tried quite a few password manager/autofill utilities, and none of them have quite offered the full integration experience I've needed, at least nothing above and beyond what browsers and operating systems have built into them...I've always ended up uninstalling them and...

The Web Is The New Desktop: Microsoft Announces Chromium To Power Edge
I remember a heated debate I had with a colleague years ago about how web browsers are platforms (he was arguing they weren't...the irony is that he was a designer, but that's neither here nor there), and if the past few years have been any indication, this is most decidedly the case now 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.

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...

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...

DrumSTRONG 2008: A Smashing Success -- Thank You Scott and Mason!
Three years ago, a friend of my family's teenage son was diagnosed with cancer, and was given fairly bleak chances of making it through the ordeal. It was a crushing blow to the family. For the full story, read the ESPN piece on Mason (he's the last story). Mason would go on to conquer the cancer... Read More...
