Work Item Moving Tool is back!

Hey guys, I’ve finally had a chance to update my work item moving tool to work with the RTM release of Team Foundation Server. Along the way, I made some modifications and changes that I’ve wanted to do for a while. I haven’t thought of a better name than ‘work item mover’ so for now…

A change of address of sorts…

Hey guys, Well, the time has come. After 8 years at Microsoft, I’ve decided to pursue a long-time dream of running my own business.  My new venture will be in a Seattle-based consulting company, CounterPunch Software (www.counterpunchsoftware.com).  Not surprisingly we (or more accurately I) will be focusing on Microsoft technologies and solutions.  My last day…

Presentation/Demo Tips

Hey guys, When I first started at Microsoft 8 years ago, I was an awful presenter.  I hardly made any eye contact and I spoke really, really, really fast.  Over the years, I’ve had some training by some really good instructors and gotten a lot of practice.  Now I like to think of speaking as…

A diversion – Windows Live Alerts

I’ve been poking around the Windows Live stuff for developers (http://dev.live.com) and someting caught my eye.  With Live Messenger (formerly MSN Messenger), you can sign up for, as well as provide Alerts.  These alerts get delivered to your device of choice (MSN Messenger, Phone, PDA, etc). One of my projects at work right now is…

‘Wall Time’ as a way of determining correctness

Quite a few years back, I joined the Windows Server 2003 team as a developer.  Windows Server 2003 is a massive organization – I was part of the UDDI team which resided under Directory Services. Our QA team had a suite of about 300 automated tests.  The collected the ‘wall time’ of a test run…
