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


This week started with a holiday. As such, we’ve not posted
all the
articles that have come into CodeGuru. Look for more
articles this week. As
always, if you’ve been working with C#,
.NET, VB, or most importantly, C++,
feel free to write and
submit an article. Remember, you can either send your
articles
to [email protected] or you can enter them online in our

submission form. Our online form is actually a work area that
you can
enter articles over a period of days. We won’t get the
article until you
click the Submit for Posting button.


Until next week!


Brad!


PS – Spiderman 2 raked in over $180 million in six days. I
actually found
this to be a fun movie. It broke a couple
of box office records in the
process.
