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

There are always interesting discussions happening in the CodeGuru forums. A few weeks ago, I started including links to a couple of the 'hottest' threads in the forums. What  constitutes a hot thread is one that has sparked a lot of  responses in the forums.

The hottest thread links are lower in this newsletter within the Discussions section. These threads are also listed on the  front of CodeGuru near the bottom.

If there are other things you'd like to see in this newsletter, or things you'd like to see gone, please feel free to send  suggestions my way. We have a lot of readers, so I can't promise every change will be made, but I am willing to consider nearly any.

Until next week!

Brad!
