      Consider talking to Dr. Dobbs about adding content to the Architecture site there.  I write a blog there on Windows/.NET.  The managing editor is Jon Erickson.  If you want his email, send me an email to my work box – you have my address already.  Alternatively, send me links to what you want and I’ll include it on my blog.
