-> VBPZ GAZETTE HITS 100 SUBSCRIBERS

Today VBPZ Gazette subscribers count passed the
100 users milestone: it is a great result for my
site and I would like to thank you all for your
interest in it.

------------------------------------------------------
-> SEARCH ENGINE IS BACK

With the number of files available for download
costantly growing, came up the need of a Search
Engine for my site. So I decided to put it back,
but instead of using a free remotely hosted
search engine, I decided to code it by myself.
The result is a much improved version that allows
searches with "any-keyword", "all-keywords" and
"exact phrase" matches. You can quickly access
it through a small search panel on the left menu,
or click on "Search" (top navbar) for the advanced
version. Try it out!

------------------------------------------------------
-> GREAT SUCCESS FOR TUTORIAL

The "experiment" of making a VB Tutorial is going
VERY well: in June the 5 pages of the "Learn
Visual Basic" tutorial received an average 13%
page view rate and they are doing well in July.
After this successful experience, I will surely
write more tutorials (even more advanced) starting
September/October. I have already received some
good suggestion, you can post yours to
webmaster@vbprogzone.cjb.net  .

------------------------------------------------------
-> GOODBYE GEOCITIES

You may know that Visual Basic Programming Zone
started on 13/05/1998 at Geocities (now
Yahoo! Geocities). From November 1998 there was
only a redirect page there.
Well, that page was removed on 30/06/2000 and the
following URLs are no longer valid:
- http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Lab/3406
- http://www.geocities.com/lorenzo_dv
- http://jump.to/vbprogzone

------------------------------------------------------
-> ADVERTISING CHANGE

I finally decided to terminate the membership with
LinkExchange (now a service of Microsoft bCentral),
because it was not refering enough visitors to my
site. I started a membership with a good service,
HitExchange, that is satisfying me. If you are
a webmaster and would like to advertise your site
with HitExchange, please use the url
http://www.hitexchange.net/HX130598 and you will
also help my site.
I also added more advertising banners, but the
should not bother you.
