To Woody Leonhard, for all his help over the years.
Many thanks to my agent, Claudette Moore, and to Microsoft Press lead editor, Sandra Haynes, for helping coordinate the complex process of writing this book; to Susan Harkins, for writing Chapters 8–11 when time was short; and to Jean Ross, Dail Magee, Jim Fuchs, Marzena Makuta, Julie Xiao, Brian Johnson, and Robert Lyon for testing the code.
My thanks also to Jennifer Harris, Rebecca McKay, Kathy Murray, Ina Chang, Shawn Peck, Barbara Levy, Marilyn Orozco, Rob Nance, and Bill Teel for your help in producing this book (which often included long nights and weekends to meet the tight deadlines).
