HanselminutesMy eighth Podcast is up. This episode is about a few useful VS.NET tools and some interesting websites. I'll talk more about the many other tools that are available in future shows.

We're listed in the iTunes Podcast Directory, so I encourage you to subscribe with a single click (two in Firefox) with the button below. For those of you on slower connections there are lo-fi and torrent-based versions as well.

Our sponsors are Automated QA, PeterBlum and the .NET Dev Journal.

Do take a look at TestComplete from Automated QA. It integrates with Visual Studio 2005 and I'm going to try to get a formal review of their stuff probably week after next, particularly their functional Web Testing and Recording.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

  • Each show will include a number of links, and all those links will be posted along with the show on the site. There were 15 sites mentioned in this eighth episode, some planned, some not. We're still using on this show.
  • The basic MP3 feed is here, and the iPod friendly one is here. There's a number of other ways you can get it (streaming, straight download, etc) that are all up on the site just below the fold. I use iTunes, myself, to listen to most podcasts, but I also use FeedDemon and it's built in support.
  • Note that for now, because of bandwidth constraints, the feeds always have just the current show. If you want to get an old show (and because many Podcasting Clients aren't smart enough to not download the file more than once) you can always find them at
  • I have, and will, also include the enclosures to this feed you're reading, so if you're already subscribed to ComputerZen and you're not interested in cluttering your life with another feed, you have the choice to get the 'cast as well.
  • If there's a topic you'd like to hear, perhaps one that is better spoken than presented on a blog, or a great tool you can't live without, contact me and I'll get it in the queue!

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Now playing: Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant, and Karl Pilkington - Ricky Gervais Show: Season 2, Episode 1

Hey Scott - Hanselminutes is starting to grow on me (I'm not a fan of the medium), keep it up. One suggestion - shrinkster is great for sharing links audibly, or when you don't want long links to get messed up in an email, but its pretty annoying when shrinkster links show up on a regular web page. It obfuscates what the link is for - I can't hover and know where I'm going. How about using the actual links on your Hanselminutes links pages?
