I love this disclaimer for the The San Diego .NET user groups
The bold and italic part below is the disclaimer. Were you at the San Diego .NET User Group meeting a couple of nights ago? Paul Sherrif (who did an awesome Whidbey presentation) and I gave away TWO, yes *TWO* XBoxes. There was thousands of dollars worth of books and software given away (as usual), and free pizza (as usual), and superb world-class technical content (as usual), but this is the first time we've given away XBoxes. It may not be the last (I didn't win and wouldn't mind another chance ......

BizTalk Server 2004 Service Pack 1 and Adapter Migration Toolkit Released!
Got this off Scott Woodgate's blog. I am sure everyone knows already, but for those who don't. Enjoy. Get it here. I strongly recommend that everybody trys this in your test environments and then puts it into production. Along with the usual bug fixes provided in service packs you can expect up to a 10% performance increase in some scenarios. This is thoroughly recommended and has been well tested by our EAP customer (thanks). Along with Service Pack 1 we are also releasing the BizTalk Server 2004 ......

Choosing Between ClickOnce and Windows Installer
I have seen Click-Once Deployment in action at TechEd 2004 (presented by the PM / fellow alumnus of Virginia Tech) and I cannot wait till it is fully released. I can see deployment headaches vanishing in my corporate environment. I wish it was already going into production. The Smart Client Developer Center on MSDN has just released an article that discusses the features of both Windows Installer and Click-Once Deployment and then provides guidance on how to choose the right option for your application. ......

Late night posts

There should be an increase of late night posts from me. I went out and bought a wireless router today. Now I can roam my apartment and post from the TV area or the bed. :-)

Is Microsoft the next IBM
Scoble say more people are joining Microsoft the new IBM band wagon. Microsoft has recently been shown in this light, but I see a turn around in the way Microsoft is on the verge of a turning point. Where do I see this inflection point coming from? The MSN search team, I think this team deserves Microsoft's most responsive team of the year award (if there is such a thing). When the MSN Toolbar Suite and the Beta web site was released, the team actively searched the web to see what people where talking ......

My first article, QuickStart Guide to Installing & Configuring BizTalk Server 2004 for Windows Server 2003 Multi-Box Installation , has hit over 1000 hits (1176 to be exact). I first posted this guide on the on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 11:49 AM. So I am averaging about a 100 hits a week.
