Comments from the Editor

If you are like most of us, then you are trying to recover from the holidays! As such, this week I'll cut the editorial short so you can focus on digging out!

Feel free to take the few minute saved from reading a shorter editorial and check out a few of the articles on the site or to jaunt over to the discussion forums to see what is happening!

Until next week...

Brad!
