VisualSVN - Subversion within Visual Studio
Wednesday, July 30, 2008 1:23 PM
I am a big fan of Subversion . I like TFS too, but subversion is more suited to my small scale personal needs whereas TFS is more in the corporate space, or at least, more in the " requires more juice " space. Juice that I don't really have. So, I use subversion for a majority of my personal development. I like it. I normally use TortoiseSVN for the explorer... Read More...

This web application is quite heavy in terms of Javascript and AJAX feature usage. I am happy to report that... Read More...

Tuesday, April 29, 2008 4:35 PM
So I finally got WiX to create an installer for me after many hours of poor documentation, obscure errors and bizarre angle bracket syntax. The latest error I have really annoyed me as there was no obvious indication what the error was and how to resolve it, which is really the purpose of this post. To share this so that others may benefit, and because my memory... Read More...

In a previous post on some problems I had with VS2005 and unit testing where running unit tests always gave me this: I reported that uninstalling and re-installing the test components of Visual Studio fixed it up. Well I am getting the exact same behaviour with VS2008 now. So, I thought I would uninstall the unit test component of VS2008, then re-install it,... Read More...
