This Week's Topics


Comments from the Editor


We are back from the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. Things are crazy busy as the holidays approach. This past week-end included Black Friday - the big shopping day. I didn't go out on Friday, but I was in line at a store at 5:00am the day before. I managed to score a new netbook computer. Better yet, the one I ended getting to buy was better than the one listed in the ad! It was definitely worth the wait.

Speaking of lines....

We are still working on some updates to the Codeguru site that will hopefully be launched in the near future. The changes are in the works; however, they were been delayed a little due to other projects from Internet.com cutting in line and bumping us back a little bit. Regardless, I've shown the forum moderators some of the changes and the overall feedback has been positive. Hopefully the Codeguru updates will be worth the long wait in line. While I don't expect to get a better site than what our developers promised, I do expect that it will be an improvement over the site today!

Until next week...

Brad!
