Not a very eventful week (probably for the better, I was stuck 
out of town ALL week due to a work meeting compounded with flight 
cancellations getting back), we're marching toward a release.

Nice, but I'm missing the tip of the week (also with issue #7). Already out of ideas?

I ran out of my backlog and haven't had the time to write up new ones the last couple weeks because of other obligations eating up all my time (this week, I had to travel for a work thing... then got trapped mid way by that winter storm hitting Baltimore and Philadelphia), so I try to release this with something rather than nothing when that happens. When I have a few extra hours, I'll write up tip or project spotlights for the next month including the UTF decoding in foreach and phobos, moving forward with the little game using my libraries, and whatever else pops up in the chat or something that I feel like talking about.

This seems to be easily parallelizable - ask for contributions, and publish them with due credit. -- Andrei

There are a bunch of good tips here: http://p0nce.github.io/d-idioms/ If the author(s) are OK with the idea you could use this as a source of tips for a few weeks. bye, amber

Don't wear yourself out on a weekly deadline, maybe a bi-weekly issue would be equally good?
