Holly cow, it's been over four years since I've blogged about the the Team Foundation Sidekicks? (Team Foundation Sidekicks 2.2 Released – Includes new Permissions Sidekick! )

It's cool to see that this is alive and well and continuing to grow. Love that it supports the Team Foundation Service... :)
