Basically, they just automating what by law (in NJ at least) they must provide.
The Indy Project is an Open Source group that maintains several active projects that grew out of the original Indy.Sockets project.
Indy.Sockets is an open source socket library that supports clients, servers, TCP, UDP, raw sockets, as well as over 100 higher level protocols such as SMTP, POP3, NNTP, HTTP, and many more. Indy.Sockets is available for C#, C++, Delphi, Visual Basic.NET, any .NET language, and Kylix.

Bubelen is a system for building and maintaining bubbles. A bubble is a piece of code for testing, developing, profiling, debugging, and stress testing. Bubbles are similar to boxes which are used in box testing (sometimes also referred to as unit testing), however bubbles are not designed with the only goal being testing.
Indy.Data is a new project that provides a very unique data access layer in C# for ADO.NET.
Indy Soap is a Open Source Library for implementing Web Services using Borland environments. IndySoap is not tied to Indy sockets for transport services, though Indy based transport services are included.

Creates CHM report files illustrating the level of coverage for specified BTS 2004 orchestrations. This tool can be run to gain a consolidated view of orchestration tracking data for a specified period of time to help developers get an idea of how their orchestrations are being processed and how much coverage they are getting in their testing. In addition to simple coverage information the data presented helps to identify latency and code path exceptions by highlighting long running and error prone orchestration shapes.
It's simple — no complex setup or installation is required to try out SQL Server 2005 running in the full-featured MSDN Virtual Lab. As part of the MSDN Virtual Lab, you will have full access to SQL Server 2005 through the following modules:

There's been a port of the book The .NET Developer's Guide to Windows Security to a Wiki.
Not sure how many folks are having this problem but I've been having it on several machines all running Outlook 2003 - both non-Exchange & IMAP/POP access machines.
Lately it seems to be getting worse now that I've added the 2.5 version of Newsgator. So today I did a search and found that fortunately (I hate to be alone) I'm not the only one with this problem. That makes me feel better emotionally, but crap, Outlook just wont DIE!!!
So, found this post that basically says you need to close outlook from the "File, Exit..." menu item instead of using the Window Frame "X" icon. Can this be true? A product put out by Microsoft used my millions programmed in a way that a simple oversight in coding would screw up so many?
I haven't fully tested the "File, Exit" path yet, but I'll report back. I did find some interesting utilities on that post (and other blogs referring to one of the utilities "Knockout".)
Naughty Software for Outlook...

It's amazing how fast pricing has declined on photo printing services, not to mention the amount of storage they offer basically for free. On Ofoto (now "Kodak Gallery") I have over 5 Gig of photo's up there spanning 5 years - still, haven't seen that bill yet for storage.
