Been playing around with Visual Studio Team System and trying to get Team Foundation to work which is the server product providing the infrastructure for source control, team management, and much more. TS being a CTP does have some problems with the installation so I needed some additional support in order to get it working (still not there though).
What to do when dealing with a CTP? Well I discovered some private Microsoft newsgroups which provide a wealth of information about not just Team System but all the Whidbey products.
I wanted to access these newsgroups using my own NNTP reader XanaNews which provides a much better experience reading the groups. Buck Hodges has a post on how to get this working, check out the VSTS Newsgroups post for more information on this.
