Rants, rambles, news and notes from another geek

Geek Notes 2004-07-22

I am busy as hell with work and family…

But here’s a few good nuggets I’ve found over&nbsp_place_holder;the past couple of days.

  • Picasa - Google bought this image management tool and is now giving it away [via Scott Watermasysk]
  • BizTalk Pipeline Component Wizard - We had Scott Woodgate’s BTS04 Adapter Wizard, and now we have a wizard for pipelines. Nice. I need all of this sutff, so keep it coming!
  • Outsourcing Fast Food - Apparently when you order from the little speaker box there is no guarantee that the person you’re talking to is even in the same state as you. [via TechDirt]
  • BizTalk Joy - Scott Woodgate is pouring out the information… promoting properties, BizTalk documenter, SOA whitepapers, etc.
  • Microsoft Buys Lindows - Well… not the company but the name. Now they needn’t be quite so worried about trademark infringement of the Windows name.
  • Lots of MSBuild Tasks - I think I blogged this a long time ago, but Jamie Cansdale re-found the comprehensive list of MSBuild tasks produced by Microsoft UK.
