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

Christmas is over and the last week of 2005 is winding down. Even so, the discussion forums continue to be hopping with activity and new articles are continuing to be published.

During this slow time of year, it is a great time to read some of the articles or threads you haven't had time to keep up with over the past weeks and months!

In this week's newsletter, I reference three tutorials that are on Developer.com. Each of these is a series of articles.One focuses on VB .NET, another on PHP, and the third on Python. These are just some of the tutorials you can find to help you get started learning about a new language. It is never too late to learn a new programming language!

Until next year! (Which is only next week!)

Brad!
