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
Force.com developer org allows to create one public website and i created this one. I created this simple CMS in around one hour to publish blog post on my force.com public website.
I used standardController ‘Account’ & approx 15 VF components in this page such as:
page, pageBlock, pageBlockSection, outputLabel, outputText, pageBlockTable + column, repeat + outputLabel, dataTable + column, outputLink, form, pageBlokSectionItem, outputPanel, inputCheckBox, inputTextArea, inputSecret
I have also used: system variables on this page.

Code can be found on my force.com website: http://pradeep-kumar-developer-edition.eu5.force.com/

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.
