Letter from the Editor

Here we are again.  This issue was a long time coming, but I think it is worth it.  My only regret is a rather small amount of content, and  very little diversity in the languages represented. All the same, I hope that this is an enjoying read for everyone.

In this issue we have a letter from someone who uses BASIC as part of their business.  We have some very interesting code for a Sudoku solver in the code show.  We have a funny comic strip about programming as well as a joke that I thought programmers would appreciate.

We have the first in what I hope will be a long running humor/tutorial series called "Programming for Assholes". We have an interesting editorial about Blitz3D and how it pertains to BASIC as a whole.

There is a very interesting tutorial about using BASIC for animatronics.  Last but not least, we have a tutorial on combining BASIC and PANORAMIC to exploits the strengths of both.

If you have any comments, questions, ideas, complaints, etc you can reach me through editor@back2basic.phatcode.net or you can leave a comment on the main page for the issue in question.
