    TFS and Merging Between Branches

    I’ve found that when using TFS and merging between branches it can be very difficult especially with there are concurrent changesets that are being merged in. So far it’s been rough using TFS and version control. Five things that I would recommend that will make things easier: Pull latest on source branch and target branch. About 80% of issues are from not getting latest on both the source and the target branches. Tons of issues can be avoided if you remember to get latest before commencing any merge. Use Beyond Compare or WinMerge as your merge and compare tools. Beyond Compare is free as a 30 day trial and then…

    Bulking Up in 2017 – Part One

    One of my lifelong goals has always been to be at a healthy weight. So I’ve decided that I’m bulking up in 2017! I have recently joined 24 Hour Fitness at the San Clemente location in Orange County and I’m going to start a personal training program with personal trainer Steve B. this week. I’m going to do everything he says. I’m super excited about starting this program because I have always been a skinny kid. In 2003, I attended the Five Star Basketball camp which is one of the top basketball camps in the nation. In the camp we had tournament games that I’d play in and I’d get knocked over and…

One paper published by a Duke University researcher in 2006 found that more…

    Daily Quote – Will Durant

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation: we do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have these because we have acted rightly; ‘these virtues are formed in man by his doing the actions’; we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit: ‘the good of man is a working of the soul in the way of excellence in a complete life… for as it is not one swallow or one fine day that makes a spring, so it is not one day or a short time that makes a man blessed and happy’.
