I have to thank Sondra Scott from the bottom of my heart. She is a great editor, and I appreciate her deeply. Addison-Wesley is lucky to have her, and I have been lucky to work with her over the past year.
Scott Seely is the best technical editor I've ever had. He identified problem areas and made a number of suggestions for material that should be added, to provide greater value for readers. Of course, any good technical editor is hard on an author, but in this case I am grateful because it made such a positive difference in the quality of this book.
Vincent Minden provided material for Chapters 5, 15, and 19. I appreciate his help more than I can say. Ian Hadgraft helped out a great deal with the Regular Expressions material.
Clifton Griffin was a huge help. He helped create some of the support material for subjects such as writing NT Services and using WMI. He also did some of the grunt work in testing and fixing parts of the Web site. I really appreciate his help over the past year.
