    Thanks to all that attended and stuck around a bit later than 8:15. I know I threw a lot of info out there so if you have any specifc questions, shoot me a message here or over on LinkedIn.

    Also, I don't recall your name, but to the Magenic guy in the purple shirt I spoke with afterwards about switching browsers in Selenium - thanks for mentioning that. I went back into my code, realized what I was doing wrong (definite facepalm moment) and got it configurable via the app.config file instead of having to change code - should have done that long ago and it was very simple after the "oh, yeah, of course" moment.

      Hi Neil, I was not able to attend the meeting. Would you be able to provide slides of your presentation?

    Per Jubaer's question about the scale on the timeline. I haven't been able to find a way to change the scale of the timeline chart, but can get time in milliseconds to be a column in the session list.

    In the FiddlerScript file I added this:

    public static BindUIColumn("Response Time", 100)
    function ResponseTime(os: Session)
    { return os.oResponse.iTTLB + "ms " + " " + os.Timers.HTTPSHandshakeTime;

    It makes a new UI column in the session list titled Response Time that is 100 units (pixels?) in width and prints the Time To Last Byte in milliseconds and the HTTPS Handshake time in milliseconds. The session's oResponse and Timers objects have other timings as well. Look at the Statistics Inspector tab - Actual Performance for what timings should be available.

    I could see having the timings as a column rather than in each Statistics inspector be a nice-to-have.

    Neil gave a good presentation. Fiddler is will definitely be added to my toolbox. I liked seeing the use of Visual Studio to invoke Selenium tests that manipulated Fiddler to save session traffic when the test failed. Thanks Neil and to Raja too for hosting!

    Very informative talk. Fiddler looks it would fit the bill for debugging HTTP packets, has good statistical analysis tools, a wealth of side features, has some nice APIs that you can call from another framework, and its free to boot. I wish they had more tools like this for debugging other machine to machine packets. Thanks for putting this on.

    Looking forward for a little more fiddler knowledge.
