    Good to know that VS 2010 B2 will have the keyboard shortcut for the zooming feature. Once I was looking for it everywhere and couldn’t find but now I know I just wasn’t here Big Smile

  • Guys. You need to update the site. The TFS offer is $10.00 USD per user per month if you are in BizSpark. We offer no free TFS hosting.

    Hey Paul, apologies for this, we read Martin's post incorrectly, this was our fault and we've updated the description.


    Apologies again,

    We are an ASP.NET shop and have created automated functional tests using WatiN to drive the browser, MbUnit as the testing framework, and Gallio as the test runner. WatiN lets you test a site exactly as it appears in the browser (IE, with Firefox and Chome in beta) and MbUnit/Gallio let you create great reports that include screenshots and rich text formatting. Highly recommended.

    Hey, can you stop letterboxing the WMV videos? Those black borders are annoying and I don't know of any devices that have problems with widescreen WMV9 playback.

  • BasBas It finds lightbulbs.

    How do I go about figuring out why I can't download any C9 videos anymore? It only works on my Windows 7 machine, not on my (Vista) notebook in the same network where it worked just fine only a few weeks ago.

    Interesting stuff, I'll look into it Smiley

    Hey Bas,


    Just thinking out loud here, maybe we make this into a "debug your network" piece? If your'e interested, let's setup an hour this week that works for both of our time zones and figure it out Smiley
