My name is Jonathan Sampson; I'm a full-stack web developer located near Redmond, Washington, United States. By day I serve as a Program Manager on the Developer Ecosystem Platform group at Microsoft.

I'm a huge advocate of community, and open-source software. I had the great honor of being a community moderator on Stack Overflow from February 2010 to March 2013. Additionally, I try to give back when and where I can through GitHub.

I recently did walkthroughs on the HTML, and CSS2.1 Specifications. These can be found online at http://youtube.com/jjdsampson. I'd like to kick off more regular hangouts discussing JavaScript, JavaScript frameworks, and modern CSS.

I'm also available to help with open-web issues and cross-browser compatibility. Feel free to reach out to me on twitter, and I'll gladly assist to the best of my ability.

comment “Internet Explorer blocked…files to your computer” - Which Files?
I'm confirmed that the issue is the result of a facebook fan box widget trying to download login_status.php from facebook.com. This is only happening in IE, and won't actually go through with the download if the user attempts to follow-through. But I still can't seem to tell what the file is before agreeing to download blindly from the security bar.

comment “Internet Explorer blocked…files to your computer” - Which Files?
It only occurs in IE, but that doesn't really help me. I need to know what IE is attempting to download specifically since I have many visitors who may be using IE.

comment When your field-terminating char appears within field values
I'm opened to just about any suggestion at this point. Please note that I'm a juvenile linux user, but very comfortable with regex syntax. I'd appreciate any solid direction you can offer.
