Okay, this post is for me (well, I guess there is a little heads-up for you too). I found this post months and months ago and thought it was awesome (thanks jhoward). When I went looking for it today, I spent a LOT more time searching for it than I care to admit. So, for posterity's sake, this awesome how-to can be found at http://blogs.technet.com/jhoward/archive/2005/01/24/359391.aspx.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why I was looking for this. I would like to revive this blog in a useful way. Sure, I could go on and on about the project I'm working on, but there are a lot of others doing that already. I would rather provide something else. So, if all works out, my next dozen or so entries will just be links to short blogcasts illustrating how to do specific things with the Service Factory.
