RossCode Weekly #039?- 03.08.2006

This week's late, so it's a little longer. One thing I do try to do though, is make sure the signal to noise ratio is high. This week, I wanted to quantify that a bit. I went over 49 stories in 34 minutes. 40 seconds per story. Not bad...

Like I said, I'm taking a week off to celebrate March Madness - actually, I'll probably be working harder for most of it, so I won't have time to do one. I'll be back the following week though.
