Windows Secrets goes on holiday-season break

The Windows Secrets newsletter staff is taking its annual holiday break. Like most of you, we look forward to visits with friends and family.

There will be no Dec. 26 issue, and because New Year’s Day falls on our standard publishing day, we’re also skipping the Jan. 2 issue. Look for the full Windows Secrets in your inbox on Jan. 9.

This month, our regular Patch Watch follow-up column falls on Dec. 26. Susan Bradley has graciously agreed to discuss important updates in the Windows Secrets Lounge. Look for her posts in the Windows Secrets Columns section. She might even post a cookie recipe or two.

All of us at Windows Secrets send our deepest thanks and appreciation for supporting the newsletter through 2013. Your paid subscriptions make up most of the revenue Windows Secrets needs to compensate contributors and staff and send the newsletter out every week. Without you, there’s no Windows Secrets.

Everyone at Windows Secrets wishes all of you a joyful 2014. Happy holidays!
