I was only reading in The Australian yesterday about websites (“Mash-ups”) that combine services from a number of other websites.
I found a reference to Mailinator on The Register today. It’s a page that maps incoming spam against the source IP address and uses Google Maps to generate a geographical map of where the spam is coming from. Makes you wonder how else you could make use of this kind of info.

Automated Deployment Services (ADS) 1.1
With Windows Server 2003, Microsoft extends the platform to make it easier for administrators to build and administer very large, scaled out deployments of Windows servers. Automated Deployment Services (ADS) includes a new set of imaging tools developed by Microsoft and a more secure, remote-able infrastructure for rapidly deploying both Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 onto bare metal servers. In addition, ADS offers a more secure, reliable script execution framework that lets administrators perform script-based administration on 1,000 servers as easily as they once did on a single server.
