With this issue, to satisfy purists (and anyone who counts carefully), we welcome the new millennium for the second time.

Stroud and by A. Rahman, that have yet to be topped. Those guys already demonstrated two leading-edge capabilities of Optics Express that subsequent authors have yet to widely exploit, if indeed they've been exploited at all. I'm referring to sound effects and reader-controlled applets.
