As part of some TFS related posts, I wrote about Find an installed tf.exe, then run it with the command-line parameters specified.
Below are some more batch files related to this. In each batch file, you can replace
call "%~dp0tf.bat" so the above batch file is executed first.

The GitHub Contributions Archive is based on the GitHub Archive (see below) and provides insight in anyones contributions. I discovered through a recent post by Ilya Grigorik:
Handy new tool (built on top of githubarchive.org dataset!) that aggregates all of your GitHub activity: bit.ly/1mraQyT.Apparently I’ve contributed to… – Ilya Grigorik – Google+
The GitHub Archive is amazing as it provides way more history than Github does by itself:
GitHub Archive is a project to record the public GitHub timeline, archive it, and make it easily accessible for further analysis.
Researching that data can provide tons of information, for instance about behaviour. It is also available through Google BigQuery so you can write your own queries for it.
The GitHub Contributions Archive – built by Liam Bowen – provides one (very usable) kind of insight: contributions, but there is much much more as quite some research, visualizations and talks have shown.

Unlike SourceTree for Windows, SourceTree for Mac still doesn’t automagically detect Beyond Compare even though that has been available for Mac OS X since : [SRCTREE-2092] Add built-in support for Beyond Compare version 4 – Atlassian JIRA.
Even modifying my
~/.gitconfig didn’t work, but manual configuration did. Here are the steps:
- Start the UI version of Beyond Compare
- Select the Beyond Compare menu, install the command-line tools

A while ago, I had this error on BitBucket:
Running git.exe with arguments "fetch --prune" failed with return code 128 and error output: "fatal: unable to access 'https://%firstname.lastname@example.org/%user%/%repository%.git/': Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to bitbucket.org:443
A quick search for “Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to bitbucket.org:443” pointed me to a comment by Ludwik Trammer on an answer by Jordfräs:
I resolved the issue by upgrading from git 1.8 to git 2.0.
Which reminded me this was a Windows system, where there is no package manager that verifies how far your non-system software is behind.
One day, I will write a script that finds out about the git version history and inform me of major/minor versions I’ve skipped.
Some notes for that:
Probably I will need to do something similar for Mercurial/hg in the future as well.
