MSMQ from the plumber's mate MSMQ is part of your business' IT plumbing which makes you the plumber and I'm your mate.

This quote (from the "License to Summon" rulebook for The Laundry role playing game system) may amuse.

Laundry employees can get a license to summon. It’s not that hard. Just complete a few basic Health and Safety and Demonology Courses, do the test, complete the very simple practical exam, and you’re certified. Peter-Francis Young has one, for Yog’s sake! It’s less demanding than getting a Microsoft Certified Professional qualification, and just like an MCP, a license to summon allows you to loose mind-eating horrors on an unsuspecting world.

The games designers are obviously continuing with the anti-Microsoft digs found in the source material, the “Laundry Files” series of novels written by Charles Stross. In his writings, Charles does not come across as a big fan of the Microsoft range of products. In fact, last October he ranted at length on “Why Microsoft Word must Die”. Not a happy man as far as IT goes.
