Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

This week started with a holiday. As such, we've not posted
all the articles that have come into CodeGuru. Look for more
articles this week. As always, if you've been working with C#,
.NET, VB, or most importantly, C++, feel free to write and
submit an article. Remember, you can either send your articles
to submit@CodeGuru.com or you can enter them online in our
submission form. Our online form is actually a work area that
you can enter articles over a period of days. We won't get the
article until you click the Submit for Posting button.

Until next week!

Brad!

PS - Spiderman 2 raked in over $180 million in six days. I
actually found this to be a fun movie. It broke a couple
of box office records in the process.
