How good is this?

I bumped into this after searching for winauthwebservices/sswinauthwebservice.asmx

An exponential back-off implementation I used somewhere; probably room for improvement, but it works good enough.

I will probably need this again somewhere in the future: An exponential back-off implementation I used somewhere; probably room for improvement, but it works good enough.

It’s Delphi, but I’ve not seen practical implementations in C# either.

Visual Studio: In TFS how can I correct the links to work items on an existing changeset – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/17

This is still one of my gripes from Visual Studio: when a changeset is linked to an incorrect work item, you still have to change this from the work item side:

You cannot change it from the changeset UI, but you can change it from most work item UI’s. You can just add a link to a the specific changeset and the changeset will show the link as well.

You have to be careful with the steps too:

  1. Link it from the correct work item as a changeset link
  2. Unlink it from the wrong work item

If you do it in reverse order, and get the changeset number wrong, you will have an orphan changeset.

RSS feed for Dave’s Development Blog – mostly OTA articles on the Open Tools API for Delphi and C++ Builder

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/16

TL;DR: http://www.davidghoyle.co.uk/WordPress/?feed=rss2

Since there is no RSS link  on the page [WayBackDave’s Development Blog – Software Development using Borland / Codegear / Embarcadero RAD Studio

Since I wanted to follow his “blog” (which is sort of a collection of WordPress pages, mainly about the programming OTA: the Open Tools API interface to Delphi and C++ Builder), I was looking for the RSS feed.

Luckily, Feedly knows how to detect most blogging platforms, so it came up with https://feedly.com/i/subscription/feed/http://www.davidghoyle.co.uk/WordPress/?feed=rss2 which indicates the final bit is the RSS feed URL.

Some interesting links from there:
