  • Blog Post: TfsAlert and Security

    After releasing TfsAlert 0.3.0.0 I realized I'd failed to mention how security works. BIG OPPS, Sorry!!! TfsAlert will not get into the business of managing your user account. Windows already provides such a facility and I believe leveraging that is just a better more secure choice. However TfsAlert...
