Okay, I give in. Who is behind the new DevelopmentNow blog?
Whoever it is, they just posted a VSS database analysis script (Win script...untested by me) that provides a third alternative to the two scripts (one PERL, one VBScript) and link to a third script that appear in my July 2003 post on the subject: End-to-End Analyze Script for Keeping a VSS Database Healthy.
