Updating computer name in TFS workspaces

When I changed my computer name recently, I found that all my Team Foundation Server mappings were still looking towards my old computer name.  Fortunately, searching the TFS documentation revealed that there is a quick way to update your computer name without having to reset all your workspaces.  Run the tf.exe tool, found in \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE directory:

tf workspaces /updateComputerName:MyOldComputerName /s:http://MyTFServer:8080
