My name is Jonathan Sampson; I'm a full-stack web developer located near Atlanta, Georgia, United States. By day I serve as the Director of Quality & Innovation for appendTo, a team of front-end revolutionaries who are actively changing the web through their genius creativity, and furious bear-like passion.

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 have been attempting a weekly course online for all who are interested in learning Web Development. So far it's been focused on HTML5, CSS 2.1 and Twitter Bootstrap. I have plans of teaching jQuery and JavaScript, as well as PHP.

I'm also available to help with open-web issues and cross-browser compatibility via the userAgents program, organized by Microsoft. Reach out to me (or any of my fellow "agents") on twitter by using the hash-tag #ieuseragents.

comment Best way to sync podcasts into Windows Mobile phone?
I'm not sure about that. Seems odd to automatically-delete a podcast because it was already played though. Typically, they will mark the podcast as "played," similar to how email clients mark email read.

You're asking about the methodology. Nothing wrong with that.

comment What is the best way to watch internet movies (Hulu, etc.) on my TV?
That's pretty much the setup we have. Are you sure there aren't competing-processes fighting for memory-usage, etc?

comment How can I stop windows from rebooting after an automatic update?
You should mention that this will keep you from automatically downloading important security updates too.

comment Cases with backward air flow?
I don't think Super User is supposed to be used in a way that other users can look up cases for you.

comment What does derivative work mean in the context of websites?
To be safe, I would just designate a part of your site (assuming you're plans are for a site) and make a small mention to the technologies, or authors of the items you used/built-upon. Better safe-than-sorry in this type of area.

comment What are the differences between POP3 and IMAP?
Because posting the content (at least partially) makes Superuser rank higher for that item. Plus, it keeps the users from having to click your link to really know what is there. Give us a preview at the very least, please.

Can you include more of an answer? Perhaps copy/paste some of the details from your link.
