I was wondering if anyone familiar with the book can speak to the currency of the material at the codeguru site. Is it kept up to date? I can't tell for sure, but it appears not.

edit: never mind my question for now, I have found what appears to be more recent online material than the codeguru version here --->
I agree. Here's the link:
