NMate - Missing In Action?

Anybody know were to download NMate? There seems to be plenty of download links but not work. Sounds like a useful NUnit application.

Source Code Outliner PowerToy

Another useful, and free, VS2008 tool Source Code Outliner PowerToy.

Why install? Well it is free, painless (negligable learning curve), and it helps.

Install it and go to the menu View | Other | Source Code Outliner Power Toy’. Then drag the window to dock into your Visual Studio IDE (see picture). Now you can forget about about it .. it adds more convieniant navigation that offered by the standard IDE drop downs.

Not a killer app, but nice.

PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2008

I came accross 'PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2008'. It looks to me like one those free tools that you 'just should' have. Not a killer app, but no cost, no learning curve, and it makes life easier. The 'Collapse All' command, which collapses all projects in the solution explorer alone makes it worthwhile. I'm liking it already.

Edit Project File looks real useful if you have embedded MSBuild community tasks.

Hmmm ...'Undo Closed' looks interesting.

I'm chuffed.
