Welcome once again to another issue of the CRYPT on-line magazine for Computer users.  We hope you all enjoy this our 33rd issue.

As the festive season is upon us, Perhaps this is the right time to look back at what has transpired over the past 12 months.

Once again the CRYPT team has worked very hard to bring you a large variety of interesting articles.  However a special mention must go to our very own "SuperMum"

Checking through our back issues for 2003 and you will find Liz Green ... driving a steam train and even taking a trip in a hot air balloon.  I dread to think of what she will get up to in 2004.

Crocodile wrestling ... Lion taming ...or perhaps a search for the Yeti  :)

As they might say in Glasgow  "Goan yersel hen ..yer dain a fine joab"

2003 was a good year for the CRYPT ...once again our site visits increased and a lot of you took the time to write to us expressing your enjoyment of the magazine.

However there still seems to be a small portion of people who cannot quite grasp what the CRYPT is all about ...and comments on various forums like  "What has this to do with computers?"  are often seen.

The CRYPT is NOT a computer Magazine ..It IS a Magazine for computer users and computer users come from all walks of life.

If the CRYPT had tried to remain solely as an Amiga magazine, we would have  (like so many before us)  closed our doors a long time ago.  It is only because of our variety of articles that we can continue to expand and grow.

Let us just hope that theCRYPT will continue this upward trend in the following year and that we continue to have your support in the months ahead.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our readers and all those involved with the CRYPT a very
