Crispin Parker's Blog - Task Board for Team system and the great WPF challenge

"I'm special... Well that's what I like to think! My consulting role within Conchango (as an IP only person) is quite unique*. I'm shielded from the competitive aspects of the normal client based projects and the constant pull of project managers trying to hunt (poach?) development resources.

Also, Visual Studio 2008 (Orcas) was about to be launched and the version 1.2 of the SfTS didn't work in TFS 2008.
