Happy birthday man! What day? (this is a fork birthday loaded week, me, my friend, my other friend's girlfriend, now you).

Glad to see one of my submissions topped a list, even if the list was given in no particular order...

Great, I especially liked the random algorithms article, it was ammusing.

That's what I'm trying to figure out - me and 2 other people on the same forum (and it's not a very big forum) all have July 24th as a birthday. The closest thing I can think of is Halloween, although that's a very wierd time to be making babies.

I just worked it out though, and in order to be born in the last week of July, you'd have to be conceived around mid-october, not the end, unless you're 2 weeks early.

Although often sometimes if he's the first born, it happened alot that the first born is a week or two late :-)

Great issue, Pete! :D
I'm still reading.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MystikShadows for his kind words about my tutorial on Data Validation Implementation on QB Express issue #11.

In issue #12, I particularly enjoyed MystikShadows' part 1 of a tutorial on Database Design. Having dwelled on the subject for years, I can appreciate his gift for presenting the salient facts without getting into much of the gory details. Great job! I can't wait for part 2.
