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

The Codeguru newsletter is being converted to an HTML format. I've been asked to drop a few elements of the newsletter including this editorial each week. If you have just a few seconds, can you send an email to webmaster@codeguru.com and let me know the following:

Should we keep the following (a simple yes, no, or maybe would be appreciated:

  • Keep the editorial?
  • Keep the list of recently published books?
  • Keep the hottest threads?
  • Keep the Developer.com article list?

Is there anything else you'd like to see added or dropped?

Your response is greatly appreciated.

Until next week...

Brad!
