Whatsmore you don't need to wait until midnight to pick it up either :).  As of now BizTalk Server 2006 Beta 2 is available at betaplace.  We haven't updated ms.com yet (its coming) but the instructions are the same as the CTP.  This time around there is the main product CD and a separate Adapters CD.  Beta 2 had a strong quality bar (production beta for early adopters) so I think you are going to like it.

This week is Thanksgiving week.  I never really understood why American's have their longest holiday of the year in the darkest time of the year - but then again coming from a country that celebrates X-mas on the beach with a cricket game what do you expect.

Did the ABs rock and roll on the weekend or what?  30 minutes of 14 men (ok 13 for like 30 secs) versus 15 english AND the referee and we still win :).  Btw I absolutely love www.mediazone.com its the best way to get the rugby.

On to the next milestone for BizTalk Server.  See you at the Vancouver (opps I mean Montreal) launch event on the 29th where I'll be doing the keynote.
