Published another one! Started life as an answer to a question in the forums, and it still took 5 days to get it right as an article, despite being mostly the same material with some additions - I admit that fighting the article submission wizard took a goodly chunk of that - but it's a relief to get it out.

Is it just me, or is getting the words right a lot, lot harder than the code?
Anyone else find that?
