  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server tool dump workspace details

    I juggle around with a lot of workspaces. The reason is .NET Compact Framework is consumed in a whole bunch of things like Windows Mobile, Xbox, Zune, Nokia and most of them are on different source branches.

  • Blog Post: Use Team Build to make Tea

  • Blog Post: TFS prank: Scare your developer with a bug created by the CEO

    Raymond Chen in one of his posts jokingly wished that if he could use an alter-ego to update bugs in the bug-repository it'd be great.
