Here's a life sign. I am buried under lots of work of which pretty much all will see the light of day at TechEd. We're getting close to having a first public version of the FABRIQ project with Microsoft EMEA and we're very busy here at newtelligence writing a huge SOA sample application using and combining all the good things of ASP.NET Web Services, WSE 2.0, Enterprise Services, MSMQ, SQL, and Remoting. The result is quite likely going to play some role at TechEd US and other TechEds this year. Between then and my last technical blog positing I've written several thousand lines of code again and there are several thousand more to follow. Hence the silence. Once those two projects are done or close to being done, expect a flood of explanations.
