This piece, about a long-abandoned Microsoft technology, was published in Issue 28 of Developer Network Journal, dated January/February 2002. I was extremely chuffed that it was chosen as the cover story, and even more so when they decided to use a picture of a meerkat. This was, after all, when meerkats were still cool.

Here’s the piece. The last paragraph is awful. Truly awful. I am really quite ashamed I wrote it.
