Hi CaptainD, can't wait to put your DotC article together. I can see the design in my head at the moment, but I promised myself one week break before I begin work issue 3.

Hi Gnome! But how could I not mention it?!? :-D Gotta read this issue first though...

Neil - you dare to take a break?! Ah well, I suppose you're allowed since my article was late in the first place. Will try to put some more reviews / articles together for you in the near future.
