Oh man, that's too funny. And so, so, appropriate. Yeah, go upgrade to TFS or get Subversion or something. Even zip files on a file share is better than VSS. Nice catch Sahil.

Horns or halo?

What does she need the phone for?

Using VSS with something like Vault or TFS out there is just suicidal.

Mokey - good observation, what does she need the phone for. Hmm..!!

Seriously man - don't overanalyze a joke :)

just use something like subversion or pony up the cash for a real vcs. Microsoft doesn't use this stuff for any of its own internal systems and it shows.

You would also think that Microsoft would have better Graphic designers, the look on her jacket looks like crap. even my bad eyes can see that.

Jacky -

Man that jacket was probably my screen capture, but yeah those horns are unmistakeable. Though I can't see the 666 .. hmm .. she's projecting an image to McKellen that I can't see. HMMMM!!!
