*xDev Tools* by Marc Zeedar

Last issue Markus set up his plans for mapping GPS data. This time he shows how that works so you can now take data from a device like a Garmin and plot the route on a map within Xojo using MapKit and the MBS Plugins.
*Exploring Cryptography, Part 2* by Eugene Dakin
In his series on cryptography, Eugene explores something called the MonoAlphabetic Substitution Cipher. Yeah, say that three times fast. Perhaps it would be easier to just read his article!
*Plus*: GoalMonitor, event definitions, Zip archives, databases, programming careers, accessibility, and much more!
