Subject Re: Bad taste but...

And as a followup, I would like to draw everyones attention to a new article
from the 'MSDN architectural samples team', which is 11 pages worth of
details on how to automate building a win32/soap web service using VB
script, a script that does nothing but increment a build counter, set up the
properties (env variables), get the latest source from VSS then call
build.bat files in subprojects in a manually coded dependency order

Should we point to this in the 'how people used to build projects' section
of the resources page :-)
