Lou Vega a thump to the brain
Due to circumstances surrounding the U.S. Government shutdown in October I am currently looking for new opportunities ......

Dear Social Media Community, Now that the 2nd suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has been captured and the good citizens of Boston can breathe a little easier knowing he’s not in their midst, can we, as a community come together and snowball the mainstream media with our stories of the goodness of our brothers and sisters that was demonstrated in ......

The Windows Phone 8 SDK is available as of yesterday!

There's a lot of public backlash concerning the new TSA Airport security measures which include the new rather invasive body scanners and the option of a very intimate pat down should you decline the body scanner. What I want to know is why can’t the people who build the body scanners build them a little smarter? Smart enough so that everyone passing ......

For those who hadn’t heard yet, I’ve been on crutches the past 3 weeks or so after a knee injury (torn ACL). Walking on the crutches was OK but after a few days started to get pretty painful in my hands and under my arms. The problem was the padding on a standard crutch was not very thick and with my weight pushing on those pads, I could easily feel ......

Wow that was a long title but hopefully it will help out when people run into this problem. I ran into a small issue when installing the June 2010 Windows Phone 7 Beta tools (yeah I know I'm 2 months late...been busy!) in that Symantec Endpoint Protection's Tamper Protection tool kept blocking the install when it got around to the install portion with ......

The last few months have been pretty crazy. Just before the MVP summit in February I was approached about changing to a different project with my (then current) employer, and right after the summit I was approached by another company. Eventually I went with the new company and a new role in the Information Assurance field. More to come on that as things ......

October Meeting - 8 October 2009 6PM Our next meeting on October 8th, 2009 at Blackbaud on Daniel Island will feature the Greater Charleston .NET User Group meeting in one room with the brand new SQL Server User Group meeting in another room. Both groups will meet at the same location on the same night so you have a choice of which session you’d like ......

One project I'm working on now requires the use of an application written in PHP though newer portions of it are written in .NET - they wanted to host both together and I figured it would be easier to configure PHP on IIS than it would be to configure .NET on Apache :) I was right - it was dead simple to get PHP installed and running on IIS. I simply ......

September Meeting - 17 September 2009 6PM Two meetings for the price of one! This month we start up again after our summer break with a new twist to the user group experience here in Charleston…now you get 2 user groups for the price of 1! :) Our next meeting on September 17th, 2009 at Blackbaud on Daniel Island will feature the Greater Charleston .NET ......

Am I the only one who thinks it an odd combo that the latest security updates for the Java Runtime Environment include the option to install the new Bing Toolbar for Internet Explorer? Oh and as an added bonus - right after that option screen is an add for Open Office. Just curious....oh and hi again, it's been a while!

Maybe I'm late in noticing this, but it was a pretty handy feature so I though I would mention it. Recently I was working with some obscure scripts that had comments written in another language. Though I had a pretty good idea what the author had intended just by reading the script logic, I wanted to see what the author's comments might have to add. ......

Working on a database project today I got the latest drop from a co-worker to test on our deployment machine. The process had gone on without a hitch for the past few months but today the SQL 2005 database backup file he gave me would not restore on the deployment machine...gave an error during the restore saying it was "INCOMPLETE". A quick check of ......
