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

It is October 31st and for many this is a day of tricks or treats. Halloween is a time to watch a scarey movie, eat lots of candy, and freely scare the neighborhood kids. Strangely, that also sounds like many code reviews I've been to.

Speaking of treats, next week I'm off to the DevConnections conference in Las Vegas. If you are planning on going, drop me an email. It is always great to meet people in person, so if the chance allows, I'll see you there!

Until next week...

Brad!
