Technology Highlights of 2008

What fitting way to end 2008 than a list of my own version of technology-related highlights of 2008. Dell’s Acquisition of Equallogic – Ok. So technically this happened in November of 2007. But the acquisition wasn’t completed until early this year. After review of the devices, they are definitely a cost-effective NAS solution. What a great way to introduce storage solutions to small businesses. ASP.NET MVC – Again, this technically happened in 2007, but my first experiences really happened this year. What a great, clean way to build web applications. Flip MinoHD – When Pure Digital introduced the Flip Ultra, … Continue reading Technology Highlights of 2008

Holiday Challenge – Donate or Help Out

User groups, blogs, and community forums exist because of the community. Our User Group, .NET Valley, alone has received thousands of dollars worth of software, books, food, and more over the years to attract members and thank them for coming to our events.

My Syndication at FeedBurner – Using Your Domain

Awhile back, one of my friends over at Telligent, Scott Watermasysk, posted a message regarding FeedBurner and hosting your own RSS feeds. FeedBurner is a web application owned by Google that hosts syndicated feeds and provides statistics based on those feeds such as the number of viewers. Scott recommended setting the MyBrand feature of FeedBurner to point to your own site and creating a CName entry with your domain’s DNS.

You can now access my feed using: http://feeds.jasongaylord.com/JasonNGaylord.

Copy Source As HTML in Visual Studio 2008

I needed Copy Source As HTML support in Visual Studio 2008. Luckily I came across this post today with a walk-through to set it up in VS 2008. I can’t wait for Microsoft to get this into Visual Studio. Too bad there wasn’t a Windows Live Writer add-on for it.
