When I got in today after a weeks vacation, I noticed the build was broken.  Not a problem I thought as we’ve had issues with the build “breaking”.  We just hit run now and it fixes itself.  However, this morning it staid broken after a couple of attempts at forcing the build.  So I check the error and there was an actual error.  Something cryptic about the version number being wrong.  So I let it go while I went through my email and rss reader.  Then I came across this post from Rob Mensching and my problem was solved before I even knew I had a problem.

The only real issue I had in fixing the problem is what my options were with the version element from add-in I was using.  I’ve settled on the NonIncremental rather than Date for the moment for the to get it building again, but I’ll have to think of a better long term solution before too long.  Hopefully by then I’ll have a better idea of what is possible with that element.


New unit

So today the freezing got so bad, I took it back to the store where it was bought and exchanged it for a new unit.  They switched over the hard drive so at least I can keep the work I’ve done so far.  After getting it home, I also rearranged the cabinet to see if I could get better airflow just in case heat is still an issue.  I had success!  We were finally able to play Gears of War that we had rented.  However, later on after a 53 police car chase, Need for Speed froze up after I got busted.  So I’ll go with it for a while to see what happens.  Hopefully this was just a fluke and it’s all better.
