Stop Auto-Resolving Tasks in TFS #VisualStudio

Microsoft-Visual-Studio-icon

When checking-in pending updates to tasks in TFS, Team Explorer usually sets the task as ‘Resolve’ by default. But sometimes you just need to check in part of the updates, and set the update as ‘Associate’. To stop Team Explorer from auto-resolving your task on check-in, you need to follow the next steps:

For Visual Studio 2013

  • Go to: Start -› RegEdit
  • Find Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Behavior]
  • Update Value: “ResolveAsDefaultCheckinAction”=”False”

For Visual Studio 2015

  • Go to: Visual Studio -› Tools -› Options -› Source Control

Now let’s continue those tasks!

Watch Apple’s WWDC event on Windows & Android

I’m no fan of Apple – unlike my brother – but I like to see what they are coming up next with. And WWDC is the place to know the latest updates to Apple’s iOS and their other applications. The problem is that Apple only likes to preach to their faithful, so there are restrictions in place to view the event. Live streaming the keynote requires any of these:

  • Safari on OS X v10.8.5 or later;
  • Safari on iOS 6.0 or later.
  • Streaming via Apple TV (2nd of 3rd generation with software 6.2 or later)

If you have what it takes, you can watch the keynote live here. There’s also an official WWDC app available.

 

But, what about Windows or Linux or Android? Continue reading

SharePoint Keeps Refreshing #QuickSolution

This week I had an issue with SharePoint. I tried to log in to our work’s SharePoint account to add a new blog post about Email Management. But when accessing it from IE, the website goes nuts. It keeps refreshing every few seconds and it was unusable. I tried Chrome but apparently there is an issue with this browser. When I enter my login details, it keeps prompting me to enter my username and password without success.

I tried removing the cookies but still nothing worked. Then I remembered that about a week ago, I changed my work’s account password, so maybe that was the issue. I tried to log out from SharePoint, which I managed to do successfully, but when logging in again, it started refreshing the page again.

Reset

Finally I tried resetting Internet Explorer, and that did the trick (p.s. to reset IE, go to Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, and click the Reset button). I asked around, and some colleagues had the same issue after resetting their password. I’m still not sure why it’s happening, so if anyone has any other solution instead of resetting Internet Explorer, please add it in the comments below. Thanks!

Deep Design’s Newly Redesigned Website is finally up!

There’s this popular Maltese saying which says: “L-iskarpan biz-zarbun imqatta'” – the shoemaker is wearing torn shoes – and we were like the shoemaker, doing websites for other companies, and leaving Deep Design’s website in the to do list. It’s been a long time coming but finally, Deep Design’s newly redesigned website is up and running! It has a bold and colourful new look. We opted for a responsive website design to make sure it will display correctly on all the user’s devices. Check out this post on Deep Design’s blog!

Say Hello to Deep Design

Today I finally launched a blog for Deep Design. I’ve been meaning to upload this new blog and make a post for almost two weeks now, but stayed back from posting it. I was trying to make sure the first post on a new blog is informative and gives a good introduction and this stopped me from posting it. I was always making excuses. Currently I am in France for work, and will stay for the entire week, and was going to postpone it again, but instead this morning I decided to just go for it.

What is Deep Design? Deep Design is a new startup under which my team and I will be launching all our new projects and apps. Visit Deep Design’s new blog (http://www.deep.com.mt/blog) for a good introduction and let us know what you think. There are several projects in the pipeline so stay tuned!
