Have a question? Ask Fred Langa!

Brian livingston By Brian Livingston

This week in Windows Secrets, our editor-at-large finally gets back to work.

Many of you know that Fred Langa, after nine years of writing the LangaList e-mail newsletter by himself, and then merging with Windows Secrets and writing our lead story for almost a year after that, escaped to the wilderness on a five-month motorcycle journey through the width of the U.S. and back across Canada.

His quest, and the technical support he provided to four lucky Windows Secrets readers who were chosen to receive in-person Housecalls, were documented in an eight-week series of columns we published in our paid content Sept. 27 through Nov. 15.

Take a holiday break — next issue Jan. 3

We skip publishing during the last two weeks of December, so our hard-working staff and contributors can be with their families and loved ones for the holidays. (Our readers are too busy playing with their new toys to read much technical information during their week off, anyway.)

Our next regular publication will be on Jan. 3, 2008. Have a Happy New Year!

Brian Livingston is editorial director of WindowsSecrets.com and the co-author of Windows Vista Secrets and 10 other books.
