Contacting Me

Please note that I rarely have the time to do proper justice to emailed development queries (Visio or other). Therefore I highly recommend posting your questions to a Visio newsgroup forum (just one!). This way, you have a good chance that your question will be answered more quickly.  See the Visio page for newsgroup info. Thanks.

I will appreciate your comments, criticisms or reports of bugs in the book via email address on the about page.

2005-02-28: Note on Expired Code Signing Certificate

If you're (re)visiting this page because you've noticed that some VSLs (including VBVSL) are now suddenly provoking security dialogs (or outright failing)... this is corrected in release 3.0.1 of the download material. I take a rather dim view of the circumstances leading up to this annoyance. More details in the Code Signing article.
