If you can write yourself a website and know a little SQL then we'd love you to mosey on down to our Azure Challenge and have a crack at it. There's $16,000 in prizes we really, really want to give away, and that includes a bunch of those charming Microsoft Surface tablets. Challenge 3 has started but you can still dive in and catch up. There's still time.

Our usual monthly article challenge continues and it's your turn to give your favourite authors a thumbs up. Hit the homepage (right hand side, just near the weekly poll) for your chance to say thank you to those who helped you last month. It's the least we can do to say thanks.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
