Site News

It's the May two-four weekend here in Canada and every Canadian knows what that involves. To avoid a messy weekend we're heading back to Australia for a few weeks of much needed rest and relaxation, and a break from this perfect blue-sky weather we're having.

Sean, Vince and the team will be manning the decks (or, more accurately, sitting at their desks looking wistfully at the blue sky) during the 3 weeks I'm away so we'll be looking after your articles and the forums as per usual.

I'll see you all in a few weeks.

PS. We are also currently working with a professor at Oregon State University to better understand what makes components reusable. In this (paid!) study, they would like you to identify up to 5 components on CodeProject.com that you have tried to use, and will ask you to describe whether it was easy or hard to use each. You would be able to do the study via an online interactive chat or a telephone, at your choice. As compensation, you would receive $10 for each component that you tell about (via PayPal). If you've got a few minutes to spare, then you can read more about the study. http://experiments.eecs.oregonstate.edu/general/components/

cheers,
Chris Maunder
