When you were a kid, do you remember playing a game in which you pored over two seemingly similar pictures to discover as many differences as you could? If you were to play a game of "what's different" with this newsletter's November and December issues, you'd find these changes:

  • A new title—The newsletter's name changed from Win32 Scripting Journal to Windows Scripting Solutions. We changed the name to reflect an expanded coverage of scripting solutions in the Windows environment.
  • New columns—We're introducing two new columns—"Progressive Perl for Windows" and "Practical Usage of ADSI"—as part of our expanded coverage. In "Progressive Perl for Windows," page 1, Dave Roth discusses how you can use Perl scripts and modules to help with systems administration tasks. Next month, Thomas Eck discusses how to create administrative applications with Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) in "Practical Usage of ADSI."
  • A new URL—The newsletter's URL changed from http://www.win32scripting.com to http://www.winscriptingsolutions.com to reflect the newsletter's new name. The URL isn't the only change on the Windows Scripting Solutions Web site. Starting this month, you'll also find an additional article on the Web site each month. This Web-exclusive article won't be in the print newsletter, so you'll be getting even more valuable information than before. In this month's Web-exclusive article, Dino Esposito introduces you to Windows Script Components (WSC). And as a bonus this month, you'll find a scripting resource repository. This repository contains references and links to many sources of information on the various scripting technologies.
  • A new email address—The newsletter's email address for Reader to Reader submissions, letters, and comments has changed from win32sj@win2000mag.com to winscriptsol@ win2000mag.com. You can still send subscription inquiries, payments, and address changes to scripting@win2000mag.com.

We hope that you'll like the changes we've made to Windows Scripting Solutions and that you'll continue to make Windows Scripting Solutions your source for information about scripting solutions in the Windows environment.
