More On The $10,939 "Microsoft Wants Your Developer Kindneys" Plan
The ServerSide.NET has a hysterical cartoon about the Microsoft Team Foundation Server pricing structure. See: It's ironic that the customers that select the Universal Subscription typically do so because they are willing to pay good money to not have to make a choice because they want the flexibility to change and evolve with their customer and project needs. I don't count the customers that have deep pockets and buy the universal ......

Upgrade Your Universal Subscription To TFS Suite - Try Not To Faint
For those of us in the developer community who have a scrum style “Architect/Developer/... type of job description, we can upgrade our universal subscriptions to the new Team Foundation Server SUITE which will include all the tool sets. All this can be yours for an estimated.... <GASP> $11,000 bucks! I won't quote my source in an online blog, but I received the estimate from a reliable source. Apparently only large corporations will have developers that own the entire suite ......

CSharp.Targets File

Running "aspnet_regiis -i" Not Always The Best Choice
It is very common for posters on newgroups to recommend that solution seekers run the “aspnet_regiis -i“ command to fix various problems and ASP.NET maladies.

Team Services Foundation Server Beta 2 Cannot Be Installed On Windows 2003 Web Edition
Team Services Foundation Server (TFS) Beta 2 depends upon AD/AM (Active Directory / Application Mode). According to the documentation, ADAM runs on domain controllers running operating systems in the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 family (it also apparently runs on Windows 2000; however, I have no personal experience with that configuration). Because Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Web Edition cannot be a domain controller, Team Foundation Server cannot run on Windows 2003 Web Edition. I had to find ......
