Visualise repo history in a very cool way


I saw this tweet from @JamesNK:

What an awesome way to visualise changes to your repo! James made it using an open-source product called gource. I haven't played with it directly yet, but I found a plug-in for Visual Studio to allow you to visualise TFS Source Control using gource. And there went 10 minutes of today, watching the repo at my work grow.

A few projects back I was using hg -churn to see the workload of different members of my team, but this is definitely a much cooler way to see what has been happening.

The TFS plug-in even has a real-time mode which updates as new commits are made (sounds like a perfect excuse to get another monitor on the wall!)
