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


There is an area of Codeguru that we’ve not done much
with recently. This is the area for book reviews. If you’ve recently read a
computer book, then take a few minutes to let the rest of us know what you
thought of it. You don’t have to write a novel, but simply provide a couple of
paragraphs letting the rest of us know if you thought it was a good or bad book.
We’ve even created a simple form for you to enter the information. You can find it at:


http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,272r,1,9hlk,3j91,jorm,i5r0


If you are located in the United States, you can watch
the feedback forum for an announcement sometime in the next week. I’ll be
offering a number of older books for review. You’ll be able to get one of the
books for free as long as you promise to submit a review within 30 days of
receiving it. The books will be offered on a ‘first request’ basis.


I apologize in advance if you are from outside of the
United States. Shipping costs make it too expensive to send the books.


Until next week…


Brad!
