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. While we didn’t post a lot of
articles this week, you will find a lot of articles on the site!


Until next week…. Happy Holidays!


Brad!
