  • Blog Post: Last Day with Microsoft

    From: Jeremy Jameson Sent: Friday, September 02, 2011 3:01 PM To: [snip, snip] Subject: 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. The last 11 years have been an incredible...
  • Blog Post: 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://www.technologytoolbox.com/blog/jjameson If you...
  • Blog Post: 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). You might be wondering why I would choose to...
  • Blog Post: 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 a little more effort trying to resolve the issue...
  • Blog Post: 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 difficult to read unless you can resize the browser...
  • Blog Post: 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 file (which is currently a little over 51 MB)...
  • Blog Post: 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 that I was simply losing control of my motor reflexes...
  • Blog Post: 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 I could easily create some pivot tables and charts...
  • Blog Post: 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 that these words are called homonyms . However...
  • Blog Post: 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 brought a smile to my face and a sense of nostalgia...
  • Blog Post: 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 of purple ( #36295E ) and this particular...
  • Blog Post: 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." I've skied it countless times before, but the snow...
  • Blog Post: 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 industries. My software career began with what was...
