Bad day

Clearly yesterday was a bad day.  Team Foundation Service was mostly down for approximately 9 hours.  The underlying issue was an expired SSL certificate in Windows Azure storage.  We use HTTPS to access Windows Azure storage, where we store source code files, Git repos, work item attachments and more.  The expired ...

Lessons 451 & 452 in farming

OK, I made up the numbers.  I debated what to call this post.  Adventures with a horse?  Water: a famer’s nemesis?  It’s been a fun couple of days.

Team Foundation Server and IE8

David Warren – the inventor of the Black Box

I try not to use my blog for too many personal things but I couldn't resist.  A good friend of mine, who also happens to be one of our Visual Studio ALM MVPs, sent me an email.  He told me about a project his daughter has undertaken to have the world commemorate the life and work of David Warren - the inventor of the flight data ...
