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 [email protected] 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!
