VSTS/TFS: references
I am considering picking up a couple of reference books for my team (the company reimbursing me) on VSTS and TFS. I've be looking at a couple, and found some I think would meet my needs. I was wondering if anyone has read them.... They are: Professional Visual Studio 2005 Team System And: Professional Team Foundation Server I was wondering if anyone has looked at these, and what they think. They are Wrox books, and I usually like them pretty well. They tend to be less fluff and more practical manuals. ......

Casino Royale: Not yo' mama's Bond
Let me say it very, very simply: This is the absolutely best James Bond movie I have ever seen. Believe me, this was a painful thing to say, given that I am a big fan of the genre. Not like Batman (as those who know me know I am a rabid Bats fan), but I've loved and watched the Bond movies for years. But, much like Batman, Bond has become a little too derivative of itself over the years, yet he always seems to be a little too Bond, you know? I've always enjoyed it, but I must confess it has lost ......

TSO: They came, and they rocked.
I love metal music. Heavy, dark, gothic, hairband, you name it. My band plays a lot of that stuff, and I enjoy it. I miss a lot of it from my youth (20 something years ago...oy), playing it in the band helps me relive it. Ok, I don't really miss Poison, but a lot of it, I do. I was fairly convinced that the only way I'd get to experience that sort of thing would be watch VH1...a lot. I was pretty sure metal had died. But, it hadn't....It had merely grown up. Enter the Trans-siberian orchestra. For ......

Please excuse the double-post....

I was giving the presentation on Thursday, and was thinking that the unit testing tools only existing in the TS version is wrong. Unit testing should be performed at the developer level, and not by the QA portion of a team. I know there are tools such as nUnit out there that you can use, but that makes no sense to me. Seems like the developer edition should include that testing tool. Performance tools, ok...loadtesting, ok....but unit testing????

This should be included.

GCNUG presentation
I had the pleasure the other evening of speaking at the GCNUG monthly meeting on unit testing with the VSTS tools. The members were most gracious, and they didn't throw anything fatal. :-) Anyway, I was thinking about something wilst writing my presentation: why is it that the unit testing tools are only available with the VSTS? Now, I can see why the load testing and web testing tools shouldn't be available in the Professional edition, but why not the unit tools? I mean, nUnit is a great tool and ......

Heard at breakfast...
A bunch of we geeks were at brefas this (Saturday) morning, and the discussion wandered all over the map. Blogus had the quote of the day.
I stated, philosophically, that a sociey can only go so liberal until it becomes decadent.
Even more philsophically, Blogus sayeth "Yeah, but it's a hell of a ride".
Can't argue with that......

QTP: DataTable question
A gentleman recently sent me an e-mail asking a question about DataTables: 1. Why DataTable.GetRowCount and DataTable.GetCurrentRow are not working properly in some of the tests scripts, 2. here the values are placed into the datatable from the weblist during the runtime.... is it becoz of that or any other settings required to retrieve the rowscount in the test thank u in advance I suspect the problem might be an issue with the Global vs. Local sheet, so I have replied with the following: Hi! It's ......

VSTS Install issues
Well, the install is complete. Once I got the correct permissions and the access to the correct software, it went pretty smoothly. However, I did run into one issue. During the install I got a 32000 error referring to the STS_CONFIG_TFS database being accessed by stsadm.exe. The exe was being used to configure the Sharepoint database, and was having trouble. I verified that all the pieces/parts existed and made sure the user account for setup was properly configured. All this was fine, so I changed ......
