Hi Steve - 

The scenario you described sounds like a very good implementation for
SQLNS. As I'm sure you noticed in your research, SQLNS is a framework
for rapidly building and hosting highly scalable notification
applications. Even if you don't necessarily need the scalability
aspect, you can still benefit from the development framework and what
it has to offer (scheduling, retries, event providers, etc).

Having said that, you may also want to check out Query Notifications
in ADO.NET 2.0. If you can wait until Nov 7th, it may even be a better
solution for you.
