I work at Microsoft. I generally use a Mac. I generally write in Java. Some of my code is open sourced. Indeed, it is a strange new world.

I work on the Team Foundation Server team, developing cross-platform tools for developers to target Microsoft platforms, including:

Team Explorer Everywhere
A set of development tools for Team Foundation Server, including a cross-platform command-line client, a plug-in to the Eclipse IDE, and a Java API for accessing TFS.

git-tf
A tool to create local git repositories based on TFS server data.

Random other things to make version control tools better on the Microsoft platform.

If you assume that my email address exists in some rainbow table of unsalted bcrypts somewhere, then yes, you're right.

If you use a site-wide salt, you might as well not salt at all. crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/1855/…
