Game is over (reality check)
I did support and development for RBASE, then Paradox. When Access 1.0 came out no threat, 2.0 was better and 97 flat out buries Paradox. Sorry folks, being an expert in Paradox is like being a Novell expert, no one cares, the game is over. If you wise up you'll also realize that if you can do VBA the next step is VB and you can be a real programmer.

I'm baaaack!
Just thought I would stop by and say hi to everyone. Been away a long, long time. But I'm back now, and I hope to be coming in from time to time as I have decided to use Paradox as a desktop utility. Who knows? Maybe it will grow on me  (again).

Awesome mike, good job. I noticed you also added secure login. That is great too. I never liked signing in with clear text even though I had a Prestwood-only password.

Hi Mary, Funny you should mention dedicated servers. Yesterday, Sunday, we completed our move to a dedicated server so now the website should be much more enjoyable to use. I was just getting ready to start a new thread and mention that. We are still optimizing the new server but we should be stable by the weekend. (Stable meaning we are done optimizing and securing.)

If you have a community college where you live, you can even take a cheap 1-unit walking class and qualify for the educational version of MS Visual Studio Professional. That way you can purchase your programming toolset for around $100 + the price of the class, which should be around $50 or less. That's around $800 of software for around $150. KyrioSoft

Yes, Microsoft has threatened to get rid of MS Access several times but the reality is they didn't and they keep making little improvements. I wish Corel did the same with Paradox.

New Message Board Software
Hi all, I spent today updating our message board software. Now you can reply to the middle of a thread. Some message board software use this approach and some use our old approach. I like this new approach because when you reply to a thread it "feels" like you are replying to the whole thread and someone who posted before you could get hurt feelings because they think you are talking about them. I also enhanced some of the display and formatting. Enjoy!

New Home Page
Okay everybody, I just deployed a new version of your member home page. Select My | My Public Home Page to check it out. I visited other communities and I noticed many of them simply show posts on their home page so I thought that was better than the cluttered options we were showing. So, now your home page lists your most recent content.

It's Done: Borland is no more!!!
Hi all, I just posted a news post about the final decline of Borland Software titled It's Done: Borland is No More. I for one loved working at Borland and thought it was a great fanatical software company in its day with TeamB and dedicated customers., Mike [Borland 1991-1995, ObjectVision, Paradox, SQL Team],

New menu
Yesterday I deployed a new menu. The new menu has expanded options on the Community menu and I consolidated all the service and support menus into one I.T. Services menu. I think this strikes a better balance between business website and community website. What do you think? Also, any suggestions on changes?

New 'All Groups' Random Thread Link
Today I added a "Random MB Thread" to the main message board menu. This link displays a random message board thread from "all threads". Sometimes I like to review old threads just to keep my knowledge up. During this review process, I sometimes add to the threads, but it's mainly a study tool for me. This compliments our group message board "Random MB Thread" link we added a few months ago. Now you can display a random thread from all groups or from the group you're within. To browse all threads randomly, go to the main message board overview page and select "Random MB Thread":

    Feature Survey: Attach Files to Posts
    Should I add the ability to attach a file to a post? Right now you can insert images and code into a post but you cannot attach a file. If I add this, you'll be able to attach a PDF or zip file to any post. Is that a needed or wanted feature?

    Message Boards Back up! Sort Of...
    The message boards are up and running on our new server. Enjoy! Our server move is nearly complete. The only two things we have left to do is to move our certificate and turn on our "who's online" scripts.

    No, I'm not happy at all. The new server farm I chose is very skimpy on features. The website is up and usable when it's not slow so feel free to use it. I'm going to switch "yet again" this week!!!!!! As for the visual changes, yes, I did take the opportunity to implement a few of the suggestions I've gotten. I like suggestions and I will keep implementing them so keep em coming!,

    No more verify email required.
    In an effort to make using the Prestwood Programmer Community easier, we've relaxed some of the obsticles. You no longer need to verify your email address prior to replying to a message board thread nor when creating a knowledge base post. You still have to verify your email if you wish to receive our monthly eMag.

    working with Paradox since 1994,Semi new
    I manage a small network for the calibration system in the Canadian Forces.  I have been running this database since 1994 and it's still going strong.  I am now moving from paradox 9 to paradox 12.  We use this program to track approximatly 112,000 general purpose instruments and all the histories for that instrument.  I use this site to mainly browse around.

    New Message Board Look
    Hi all, This weekend I deployed a new message board look and I'm interested in your thoughts.
  • New Overview main page - gives easy access to most popular data (boards, recent threads, and no reply threads).,
  • No groups on left menu - the left side menu was getting too complex so I removed the links to groups in favor of a list on the overview page. Now you don't have to scroll down to go to your favorite board.,
  • All Topics (the old main page) is now an option in the left side menu.,
  • Updated text.
  • Let me know what you think!

    I really like the new color changes. At least I think they're new. I like the blue and green. Pretty nice. The use  of gray seems to be up too. That's a good thing.
