  1. I want to congratulate all the winners, but, I don’t think that the competition will include such small project (because, I was a new to biztalk]

    I have started working on new tool here , which I found it is a trivial tool and I never thought to join the competition with it


    anyway, I will wait to the next competition …

    I hope to win a job @ USA instead 😀 ha ha …

    ‘BizTalk Server 2004 Administration Tool’ is very interesting tool, especially when considering fact that without VS.NET 2003 you can do _nothing_ with your BT2004 Server – I found that to be a major drawback and step backwards when comparing to Biztalk 2002. However the gotdotnet workspace does not host any files for download – is that intended behaviour ?

  4. Przemek, check the workspace again – Release 1 is now available.
