This has really surprised me.  I wrote one for NASA Headquarters this
weekend; it was designed to be REALLY simple and return the basic information
we need at Headquarters.  All told it took me about 60 hours to learn 
Visual C++, LDAP, and WINSOCK enough to generate a simple interface.

Surely there are others out there willing to share their projects????
