One of the most frustrating (and common…) scenarios is when you know more or less what the fix should be (such as, “wait additional cycle before sending” or “the variable should be int and not uint”) and the fix can be done in a matter of minutes. However, you are forced to spend hours waiting...

To see examples of screencasts, watch any of my screencasts on channel9. Why If you are a technical presenter, think of...
