Hopefully you are enjoying your holidays! With Christmas over and New Years only a few days away, this tends to be a slow time. Of course, it is also a good time to catch up on a few of the recent articles published on Codeguru or to touch base with peers on the Codeguru forums.

Until next week.... Happy Holidays!
