That image of Sam pretty much sums up my feelings for March. Maybe it was the birthday being thrown in the mix. Maybe it was a barrage of bad news across multiple fronts. Whatever it was, glad to put this one behind me.  Don’t get me wrong, there was some good mixed in there. I have incredible, thoughtful family and friends. That’s one. I also have a 4 year old niece who recently got a…

By | links, productivity

Happy New Year and all that jazz. Everyone stayed safe and didn’t have any regrets on the morning of 1/1 did they?  Here is to keeping 2014 in the positive and pushing out the negative. As I myself have been travelling and visiting with my loved ones, the list today is going to be short. Pay attention to the first one though. That should keep you busy for several weeks. Stay warm and hug the…

By | asp.net, code, life

I had the great opportunity to spend the day getting a glimpse of the DNN (previously known as DotNetNuke) world during the DNN Conference at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach Florida. I’ve been to numerous conventions, conferences and user group meetings over the years and the conference today was one of the better ones.

My company web site, while certainly acceptable, had aged to the point where it was well overdue for an upgrade. The new site at kyureodo.com now represents…

By | asp.net, code

In my current position at PBA, I’m required to manage our internal web application which is a product developed by Jenzabar called JICS (Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution).

Get a SortedList of Years

By | asp.net

So this is the first of what I hope will be many code samples I’ve either written myself or (more likely) come across during my travels around the Web. Most of these routines or functions find there way into my common libraries and most web projects.  They won’t be the best but they won’t be the worst either. Feel free to suggest improvements or to use the code how you see fit. The first is…
