    How to use the TF version control command line from VS 2003 and other environments

    • 3 Comments
    We've had a lot of customer feedback on wanting integration in VS 2003, VB6, etc. The problem with the VS 2003 environment is that there can only be a single version of the CLR loaded into a process. VS 2003 loads 1.1. The TF source control integration...

    Sorry I haven't had much (anything) to say for a while. I've been terribly busy on a number of things that it won't take a genius to guess about. So what's been going on? Well, I'm very excited about the XBox 360 and it's built in Media Center Extender...

    In the previous post, there was a fair amount of code and basically no explanation... Here's how it breaks down: Naïve method: set FILENAME=basename-%RANDOM% CMD has a built-in variable called %RANDOM% . Simply put, it returns a random value...

    Creating unique filenames in a batch file

    • 2 Comments
    There are a couple of scripts that have been with me since the beginning of time. I don't use them that much anymore, but they occasionally come in handy. I'm always pleasantly surprised to find that I still have them when I need them. One makes files...

    Typos vs. muscle memory

    • 2 Comments
    It occurs to me that my mistypings of 'notepad' and 'exit' are probably more the result of muscle-memory since I type those so often. The mistakes I make are due to one hand hitting its letter before the other (correct) hand hitting its. Just a thought...

    Laziness is a virtue

    • 0 Comments
    Some scripts are complex and do lots of cool stuff. Others are simple and save a bunch of time. I have a couple of scripts which prove to be so useful that I don't know when I'm using them anymore. I tend to type faster than I think (or get my fingers...

    code review standards...

    • 7 Comments
    Recently I had a bunch of code to check into our source depot, but I'm told that before checking anything in, it ALWAYS must be reviewed. So I sent an e-mail to my team asking for someone to review the code. 2 days have gone by and not a single person...
