Martin Woodward just posted a very entertaining and informative video about Brian the Build Bunny which is wired up to his Team Foundation Server to alert him about the success/failure of software builds. This is made easier by the built-in continuous integration capabilities of Team Foundation Server 2008.
What's especially cool about this is that Martin named Brian the Build Bunny after me. (Or maybe it was named after other Brian. Or the other Brian. But definitely not Bryan since he spells his name wrong. <g>)
