I think this is my 5th trip to Seattle this year and all has been good ... up to this one. What is it with people and snow? I live in Montreal and we have Snow, I mean real snow Meters of snow... and the world doesn't stop. it goes on! So I got to Sea-Tac at 10pm on Monday, from there going to Redmond is usually a 25min drive, it took me 3h!! there was cars littering the side of the highway, in the ditch, it was like they up and left! The cars here are not equipped for this kind of weather, low hanging ......

So I'd like to respond to Urig on his latest post about the Get Latest on Check out. The reason why there isn't a get latest on check is quite simple actually. Let's look at VSS vs. TFS in the lifecycle of a change and see how both fare. Let's start with VSS VSS 1. First thing in the morning, User does a get latest on all the files in the project and compiles to make sure the build is not broken. 2. User does a check-out on the file he wants to work with (and get's the latest of that one file). 3. ......


Can't wait to install the final build and not have to flatten every other week.  Great job Microsoft.  This is going to be a great OS.

It was brought to my attention last night (Thanks Laurent) that no one could leave comments on my blog posts. I was having the same problem myself trying to answer people but figured it was my build of vista or some glitch. Well it was actually the little bit of JavaScript that the technorati folks want us to add to our blog that was causing the issue. I may not know where to actually put that block and ended up blocking the comment by disabling the postback of the save comment button. Anyway it's ......

Read all about it here This is great news for everyone that have been installing base VMs for testing. You now get four base (more to come I'm sure) to try out Microsoft technologies, best of all it's free (free Virtual PC, Virtual Server R2). Get your VMs here Don't forget when using those VMs mark them as read only and use them as differencing drives so you'll be able to build on top of them and install other things like say... Team Foundation Sever ;-). Good stuff Microsoft... keep it up :-) Cheers, ......
