Developers always find sanctuary in code

Did you move from a coding position to a manager position? Big question...are you still coding?

January 7th, 2008 at 10:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Developers

I've talked to a couple of developers that have moved from actually coding to the managing of coders. Most of those developers...errr...sorry, managers don't code any more.

There are a couple of issues that I've seen from time to time:

  1. Programmers promoted to management aren't allowed to code.
  2. They are put into a position, almost forced to code, when they become short-staffed.

Issue 1

I've never met a programmer who doesn't like to program. Unfortunately, in the corporate world, the only way to make more money is to take a management position.

The Five-Fox Award is presented to authors of extensions I've reviewed that have received a 5 out of 5 for their outstanding extension.

Here is a little mini-FAQ:

Happy Birthday, DCS Media! We just turned 2!

I want to thank everyone for a fantastic 2007 and I definitely look forward to an even more prosperous 2008.

Merry Christmas to all!

A different rendition of "Twas the night before Christmas."

December 24th, 2007 at 3:00pm — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Humor

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
not a device was active
except my DVR and my mouse

All servers were off,
the gaming consoles were humming
downloading their updates
to keep the gamers running.

As I went upstairs
for a good nights sleep
I realized I forgot something
so I can't make a peep.

Creating your own Home Server

Microsoft released a new version of Windows Home Server, but there are alternatives.

December 19th, 2007 at 9:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Network

For those who don't know why you'd need a Home Server, there are a lot of advantages to using a dedicated Home Server.

Since your TV and PC are eventually going to be combined, you may want to get a jump on dedicating a server and building your home's network infrastructure relatively quick so you can work the bugs out now.

Consider what a Home Server provides:

Fireday - Firefox extension reviews for December 14, 2007

This week: Get Company Info

December 14th, 2007 at 6:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Fireday

Get Company Info

Rating: 2/5

Executives are always looking to be ahead of their competition all of the time...at least most of the time. This extension assists that obsessive executive always tracking their stock, the competition's company news, or even their stock price.

Overview

The Get Company Info extension is really simple to use. The whole idea of the extension is to highlight a company name or ticker symbol, right-click on the highlighted area, and select 'Get Company Info.'
