IncredBuild Becoming Increasingly Relevant

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

Most of the large projects I’ve worked on have been C++ MFC applications that had hundreds of source files in a single project. Visual Studio 2005 added support for parallel builds, but only of projects – not of individual files.  When you’ve got a single project that takes ten minutes to build, you want that sort […]

So here are my thoughts on PayPerPost.

DreamHost Upgrades
