This Week's Topics

Comments from the Editor

Yesterday and today I've been meeting with our developers to see if we could finally start the Codeguru face lift and updates. We are in the process of going through the details of a number of requests that have been made by members of Codeguru as well as by ms. We are forging ahead!

In the mean time, we are continuing to add content to our relatively new sister site, If you are working with SharePoint, then you'll want to check out the site as it posts a new article every week.

Until next week...
