Am I alone on this one... From an early age I have found that if I have ever had a lot of work ahead of me, or something really important to do, I ALWAYS find something else to do instead. Now, take my modifications to this blog as a case in point. I have a huge amount of work on my desk as I would typically, but especially this week as I have been on a Microsoft Course this week at Learning IT so the presure has really been building up like a huge pluke on your chin ready for a squeezing (not that ......

KDiff3 with TortoiseSVN a winner

It shows the differences by character. Which means if only two characters have changed on a line it shows you. You're not left guessing which characters they were. To use it: fire up your TortoiseSVN context menu and choose "settings". Select the Diff/Merge tab and point to KDiff as your diff and merge program. It's that simple. ......
