Defeating Cancer: Lance Armstrong starts Lobby

Most fortunately, no one in my family has battled cancer. Hopefully, this will continue. However, we must become more vigilant in this fight. I'm encouraged by Lance Armstrong's renewed push to conquer this silent foe. It is truly an abomination that a people so rich in knowledge and experience have yet to defeat cancer. We put men on the moon...almost 40 years ago! How is cancer anything but a footnote from the 1990's?

I urge you to join in with Lance's army. The V Foundation and the American Cancer Society are also responsible agents in the fight against cancer.

Get Your Team Foundation Server Hate On!

[Google ranking skyrockets... ;-)]

I'm a big fan of TFS/VSTS. However, there are a good pocket of folks who take issue with the way TFS handles or implements a certain feature. Well this is your chance to vent!

I'm planning a presentation around the "Top 10 TFS/VSTS Hates and How to Alleviate Them"...or something along those lines. But I need your help. Post a comment below detailing your dislike. If it's legitimate, I'll highlight it in the presentation and [hopefully] provide an alternative, resolution, or work-around.

Thanks in advance!

Update 7/19/2008: Version Control and Microsoft

Rollback a Ooops in TFS with TFPT Rollback

Rhut roe, Raggie. You just checked in a merge operation affecting 100's of files in TFS against the wrong branch. Ooops. Well, you can simply roll it back, right? Select the folder in Source Control Explorer and...hey, where's the Rollback? Rollback isn't supported in TFS natively. However, it is supported within the Power Tools leveraging the command-line TFPT.exe utility. It's fairly straightforward to revert back to a previous version--with one caveot. First, download and install the Team Foundation Power Tools 2008 on your workstation. Before proceeding, let's create a workspace dedicated to the rollback. To "true up" the workspace, the rollback operation will peform a Get Latest for every file in your current workspace. This can consume hours (and many GB) with a broad workspace mapping. To work around this, I create a temporary workspace targeted at just the area of source I need to roll back. So let's drill down on our scenario...
