VS2010 SP1 - The file is under source control and is not checked out
If you’ve recently upgraded to SP1 and tried to build a solution checked out from TFS you might have come across the following dialog. Not only does it not allow you to cancel the build process, but it also REPEATEDLY THROWS THE DIALOG PREVENTING YOU FROM STOPPING THE PROCESS. Very annoying. There is a hotfix available via connect and code gallery that will stop this problem. Connect Bug Entry: http://connect.microsoft.co... ......

How Microsoft listens
This being my freshman year as an MVP, I had a realization that I perhaps should be embarrassed hasn’t happened sooner. The realization comes much like the iconic M&Ms commercial where the M&Ms run into Santa and exclaim, “He does exist!” My personal realization arguably has a greater implication: Microsoft does listen. This is the most important lesson that I received this year attending the MVP Summit. My hope is that I can convince you that we are empowered to make a difference. Instead ......

List of influential VB’ers on Twitter
Antonio Chagoury, VB MVP, has constructed a list of Twitter accounts for VB MVPs, VB Team members, and others who are influential in the VB.NET community on his personal blog, CTO v2.0. This list has many great people who are not only talented in VB, but also who have great talents in many aspects of the .NET framework. I’m listed as a VB MVP, but if you don’t want the full list you can still check me out at http://twitter.com/svickn. However, I’d recommend checking out the rest of these guys too, ......

Windows 7’s official name announced…
And the official name is… Windows 7. You might be wondering how this is news, but really Windows 7 has been the codename up until Monday when Mike Nash announced that it would be the official name as well. The idea is that Windows 7 will continue on from where Vista left off, but to go back to version numbers instead of years and other off the wall randomness to highlight aspiration. Mike gives the rundown on why the name was decided on his blog, here: http://windowsvistablog.com... ......

What are you looking forward to from E3?
So E3 has come upon us and is about to make its way out again. Anything that peaked your interests? I have to say by far I was happiest with what I can get for my XBox360 over anything coming out for the Wii (I’ve got no PS3). The games that I’m really looking forward that were shown off this year at E3 are Crackdown 2, Assassin’s Creed 2 and Forza Motorsports 3. I’ve spent many hours playing all three of those titles, and I’m happily awaiting their releases. AC2 and FM3 are both slated later this ......

MSDN Events: Azure, Debugging and Mobility Review
Last Thursday I had the pleasure of going down to a local theatre to watch through the MSDN event for Azure, debugging, and mobility. The event itself was refreshing, and I always enjoy hearing Zain speak. We have similar passions, and also similar personalities. The event started off with a brief look at Azure, which is Microsoft’s very beta cloud computing platform. The technology itself seems straightforward and easy to use, although Zain warned about a tedious process of getting the tokens necessary ......
