Updated Quiescing patch released

We're now one step closer to the end of my humiliation :)  The updated quiescing patch has now been released and is available for all to use.  It should address many of the issues people have had with installing TFS 2005 SP1.  If you've already successfully installed SP1, you don't need to go back and mess with it, but you ...

Dry spell

It's been a bit of a blogging dry spell for me the last couple of weeks and I think it's going to continue to be for a bit longer.  Sorry about that.  It's just been really hectic.  In a moment of insanity, I agreed to help someone work on a CodePlex project to hook TFS up to FrontPage server extensions so that you can use ...
