New year resolutions
Contributing to LtU must be in there somewhere (in one of the top three places!)

Just so you don't forget!

Happy New Year!

This is a good time to vote on discussions you think deserve more attention: simply post a link on this thread!

Also, I'd be happy to hear what you feel about the way LtU is evolving. For example, recently we had some longer discussions, and some more theory than before (Thanks, Frank!). I enjoyed these, but maybe some feel this was a bit too academic?

Personally, I miss the input from some of the original contributing editors, who are too busy to post. Chris posted useful OOP news, which I found interesting.

One more thing. Some think that there is a no code policy on LtU. This is far from true. I don't think we should try to compete with CPAN, but posting specific examples can often help communication. Best thing, in most cases, is to put the code on some website, and post a link here. Discussion group items may well contain code examples.

Let me take this opportunity to thank all those who took the time to email me personally and say they enjoy LtU. Sure makes me feel good. Since this is a community site (hopefully...) each LtU reader deserves some of the credit. So I re-thank all of you.

Let this be a year of peace.

My New Year's resolution is to stop bashing Perl, Python and Ruby. I have been informed that these languages are not inherently bad, only aimed at a large and diverse community with legitimate interests in accessible and rapid prototyping.

(For your reference, my other New Year's resolution was to stop bashing Jerry Springer, Britney Spears and Big Brother.)
