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

A few weeks ago, I posted a new video to TwoMinuteTips.com, and linked to it from Codeguru. This was a video by Vipin Aravind on generating and analyzing crash dumps in your C++ programs. This has been a highly viewed video.

Today, we posted a new video by Jacob Sanford. Jacob's video shows you how to pass information between master and content pages in your ASP.NET 2.0 applications. You can watch this video now at:

http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,2xlm,1,gu8d,2x07,jorm,i5r0

See a list of all the videos we've linked to from Codeguru at:

If there are topics you'd like to see done as a video, or if you'd like to create a two to three minute video for the site, feel free to drop me an email. We have a few videos currently in the works,

Until next week...

Brad!
