I touched briefly earlier on the release of Vault 3.0, and I did find out that the one free user still exists. That's awesome. But even better than that is that you can host it at web host provider, such as WebHost4Life. Now, that's pretty cool… more »

posted on 2004-12-01 at 00:27:12 by Joel Ross

I've watched with interest some of the latest news about MCE 2005, and how it compares to TiVo. The part that doesn't quite sit right with me is the cost - a good MCE computer runs for about $1500. A TiVo runs for $500, and if you have DirecTV, even less… more »

First, NAnt has reached release candidate 1 for version .85. Here's the release notes. Quite a bit has changed! NAntContrib (NAnt's "feature pack") also hit RC1, which makes sense, since they are used in conjunction with each other. And in case this is t… more »
