SourceSafe on Vista

Richard Berg has some news to share about SourceSafe and Vista support and he asked that I help get some eyes on it.  If you are interested in SourceSafe, please take a look at: Thanks Brian...

TeamCity adding support for TFS

JetBrains, the makers of TeamCity, Resharper and other cool developer productivity tools have begun integration with TFS (in addition to SourceSafe, Subversion and other systems they already support).  They have a pre-release of TeamCity available for download.  I encourage anyone who's interested to check it out and let them (...

TFSServerManager PowerTool

Ever since we started dogfooding TFS internally, I've been working on a tool I call TFSServerManager.  It's a bit of a misnomer because it's not really a management tool as much as it is an operations tool.  In the very early days it started as a tool to help me produce the dogfood statistics you see on my blog every month - I've ...

A VS SP1 Bug Fix List Posted

Yesterday we posted a list of all bugs that were reported through the http://connect.microsoft.com site and fixed in VS2005 SP1.  The link is here and you'll find that there are 398 of them.  You can click in the link for each bug and go to the Connect bug report and read details about the problem.

Orcas Work Item Tracking Performance Improvements

Back in October I published some results from the performance work we've done on version control for Orcas.  We've also been working on work item tracking performance improvements - I mentioned them in our last dogfood server statistics.  I'm very pleased with the results and thought I'd share them with you. First you have to ...

5 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Thanks for tagging me Rob (I think :))  I can't say I've ever heard of this game before but I guess I'm in.  It seems a bit like a new version of a chain letter (do they every really go away?) but I suppose no harm is done :) I don't think coming up with interesting things about me is my strength.  Overall, I'm a pretty boring ...

January DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

I skipped the December dogfood update because the activity numbers were so skewed at the end of the month by people’s vacations.  There’s nothing that particularly stands out about the dogfood server over the last month.  It continues to grow.  Availability has been good.  Performance continues to improve.&...

Happy New Year

I never got around to saying it when I got back.  Sorry, just seems like there's never enough time in the day to do everything.  I hope everyone had a good time off - I know I did.  I spent WAY too much time playing World of Warcraft.  It's embarassing to admit it but I'm a massively multi-player online game addict.  ...

Large Group Sync - A somewhat obtuse feature to improve the behavior ...
