February 2005 Entries

What a great way to kill time.

After 2 weeks of cross Atlantic travel - Seattle and back twice plus a trip to Whistler I'm now shattered. All good stuff though - great .net pac meet followed by secret squirrel briefing at Redmond on a real goodie for next year - watch this space Q3!

Microsoft really has a great road map for the next 18 months nad then on to Longhorn...

We've got:

Visual Studio 2005

Team Services for above
SQL 2005
BTS 2006
and a couple I can't metion yet!!!

So watch this space!

Having just attended the RFID PAC it would have been nice to have done a piece on what MS are doing - unfortunately NDA's prevent me. So have a look here:,1759,1766050,00.asp

I will fill in more information as and when I can. 

The BizTalk 2004 2004 Adapter for MSMQ provides support for sending and receiving messages using MSMQ 2.0 and 3.0, and takes advantage of the new features in MSMQ 3.0. Major features of the adapter include support for: MSMQ 2.0 and 3.0 Multi-threading option for faster performance Guaranteed delivery when using transactional queues Reading from remote non-transactional queues Dynamic send ports Support for messages up to 2 Gigabytes in size ......
