  1. Hi Rob,

    I enjoyed reading your article on the TFS preview, and was amazed to hear that MS has finally set something up on Azure! I myself have been struggling with the setup internally at my office from both a time perspective and a detail perspective (I’m simply too busy with client projects to give the setup the attention it needs right now) and have been searching for a quality online vendor.

    If you have any invites left for the preview, or know where I can get one, I’d greatly appreciate your help. If not, looks like I’ll buckle down one of these nights and redo my setup!

  3. Hey Rob, I noticed your post about our article on the shortcomings of WP7 and wanted to thank you for the clarification of that point. Also, we have some cool programs just getting started and I’d like to show them to you. Send me an email and I can go into more detail. Cheers!
