Geeks With Blogs
Teucer's Quiver Me && .net

The core team maintains and publishes the monthly newsletter of our user group MUGH. I am one of the editors of the newsletter. I had been in the process of collecting entries off the net for various sections of the newsletter.

I am not sure how many of them would make their way to the newsletter by the time it goes out but I thought of posting it across so that those links which dont make it up are still preserved on this blog entry.

If all goes well then may be I shall take time and write the featured article too.

I would like to write something about Interfaces (things like reasons why security permissions cannot be assigned to Interfaces, defining class constructors in Interfaces, If Interfaces are implemented by structs then does anything interesting happen...), about general programming tips which can be used in day to day dotnet programming....

Coming to the part of the newsletter. Here are my links
