Jamie Cansdale is my hero

I've had a minor epiphany in the last week or so.  For some boneheaded reason I never caught onto TestDriven.Net's "Repeat Test Run" feature until I saw somebody mention it on a comment to Ayende's post.  I promptly went into VS.Net and set up keyboard shortcuts for "Repeat Test Run" & "Repeat with Debugging."  No more hunting around in the open window list trying to get back to the test fixture, just go "CTRL-2" or "CTRL-3" (my mappings) and run the last test.  Anything that makes the mechanics simpler just frees your mind for the meatier thinking work.

It's a deceptively simple looking tool, but there's goodness galore in TestDriven.Net.

Tips on setting up the keyboard shortcuts:

    Well, it was me noticing that Oren didn’t use that function in his screen cast. Actually I’m kind of proud that my comment was of some help to you. I benefit a lot from your blog posts and I am glad that I could give you something back.
    Keep up your good work!

    Egads! What a gem. Great tip, now I’m happily running my tests more often, as if that’s even possible!

    Nice!
    Literally about two hours ago, I was thinking how awsome it would be if you could do this. Weird how that happens some times…

    Thanks again.
