The President's Column
In this month's newsletter I'm putting in a classified
ad for our sister company, Zeidman Consulting, which needs to hire
a software forensic engineer to handle the load of cases coming
in. Read more about the position below.
I also listed links to a few interesting articles
we've written that generated a lot of buzz.
Also, please note that all users of CodeSuite,
CodeSuite-LT, and DocMate will need to upgrade their programs today
and obtain new licenses. Because of new policies at our search
provider, SourceDetective will no longer work in the previous versions.
You can download a new version of the program, uninstall the old
version, install the new version, and we can give you a new license.
Send me your comments and critiques. I'm always interested
in hearing from you.
