-> PLANS FOR THE NEXT YEAR

   Season's greetings to all of you, VBPZ Gazette
   subscribers! The end of the year is coming, and,
   together with the new millennium, VBPZ is bringing
   new exciting features.
   The first thing you will see in 2001 is: more
   tutorials! There are about 10 tutorials planned,
   and I will write them soon.
   In early 2000, I will also launch two new services:
   the Q&A Forum and the Chat Room. With the Forum,
   members will have the chance to help others and
   get help by posting and answering questions; I will
   also be there to help people, as I used to do when
   I was working at the www.ms-vb.com website. With
   the Chat Room (that will be released in late 2001),
   you will "talk" live with other programmers.
   Beside of those new services, there will always be
   new material, so stay tuned!

------------------------------------------------------
-> SUBMIT FILES TO THE SITE

   Last week, I started a new service at VBPZ: with
   the new "Submit Resources" section, everyone will
   be able to contribute in the Site by sending new
   files for publishment. It doesn't matter whether
   you are the author or not: every new file will be
   published, as long as it concearns VB and is free.
   If you know of a good resource, don't wait: send
   it now! The whole comunity will be grateful to you.

------------------------------------------------------
-> 2ND TUTORIAL

   At the beginning of November I also posted the new
   "Forms and message boxes" tutorial, that is doing
   very well at the moment: another proof that
   visitors like tutorials. I have received a lot of
   congratulations and suggestions: they were welcome!
   Feel free to e-mail me and you will always get an
   answer.

------------------------------------------------------
-> INCREDIBLE RESULTS FOR THE SITE

   At the end of the year, it is time to analyze the
   progresses of the Site. With NO DOUBT, 2000 was a
   successfull year for my site: the average visitors
   per day increased from about 30 in January to about
   200; in Jan the site was visited by 930 people, in
   November they were over 7000. And, during the same
   period, I wrote 2 tutorials, added 60 links. sent
   5 Gazettes and received 2 awards. Also the number
   of Gazette subscribers increased from 40 to 200.
   But, the most important thing, all this could not
   have been possible without YOU! Thanks for your
   support and interest!

------------------------------------------------------
-> CLARIFICATION: THE NEW MILLENNIUM

   OK, this does not concearn Visual Basic, but I
   wanted to point out a thing that I can't bear:
   the Third Millennium will begin on 01/01/2001 at
   Midnight. That's because the Gregorian Calendar
   starts from year 1, not 0, and that means 2000,
   being the 2000th year of the calendar, is part
   of the Second Millennium. Also...

       2000 - 1 = 1999

   ...so, by now, only 1999 full years have passed:
   the Second Millennium is not over, as well as the
   Twentieth Century.
