TFS: Delete workspace of another user from command line

One of my team member left the company and some of the project files were checked out by him. Other team members were not able to checkout those files to work on. TFS Administrator console also does not provide any workaround this. I found “tf” command line utility to e useful bhere. Following command can be used to delete the user’s workspace but any changes in the file after that checkout is lost. TFS version of the file will be unaffected after deleting a TFS workspace.

tf workspace /delete WorkSpaceName;UserName
/server:http://TFSServerURL:8080/tfs/TFSInstanceName

Create public website using force.com platform

The amazing Salesforce platform allows us to create public website even with developer edition of the platform. The website address will be either SubDomainPrefix.force.com or www.YourCustomDomain.com. This is my public website created using Developer Edition. The major limitation I found for a force.com public website is the 500MB of daily bandwidth and ability of creating only one website.

Reference: An Intro to force.com + steps for creating your own website in a few minutes, Force.com sites overview – contains more details about possible custom domain options, Force.com Public Website implementation guide
