Writing Again

It's been almost two years since I last published an article.  My article Automatic Memory Management and Unmanaged Resources in .NET appears on the InformIT Web site.  Another article, on .NET Isolated Storage, is scheduled for publication next month.

I've also taken over the .NET Reference Guide duties for the site.  As the Guide guy, I'll post an article in the Reference section, and make three or more Weblog entries each week.  If you're into programming for .NET, come check it out.  I'm always interested in what other people would like to see covered.

The InformIT site, by the way, is chock full of good stuff:  Reference Guides for Certification, Photoshop, XML, .NET, Linux, Security, C++, Flash, Java, and SQL Server contain a wealth of information that is continually being expanded and updated.  In-depth articles on these and other topics appear weekly, and Weblogs discuss current topics of interest.  The site's primary purpose, of course, is to sell books, and there are plenty of good books on offer.  Even so, the site provides an incredible amount of useful information for free.

The best deal on the site, though, is the Safari Books Online.  Here you have over 1,500 technical books all online and available instantly for as little as $10.00 per month.  It's an incredible deal, and well worth the price (even with the restrictions) if your book outlays are anything like mine.
