Off-shoring: You CAN fight back!
Are you fed up with calling a company and finding yourself speaking to somebody in a foreign country?  I am, and I've just learned of an effective way to fight back, help return jobs to America, and keep them here. The best part? We don't have to wait for government to do a thing.

Free Programming Books!
Good quality programming books. Read on to see how I found and acquired seven of them in less than 15 minutes. Or why we love our iPads, Kindles and other mobile devices.

John, Sorry to hear about the kittens. Frown As a developer that often has to maintain others' code, it's maddening to run into database table and column names that include spaces. It's tempting to blame whoever designed the database schema, but when I think about that, I have a better target for my ire: the makers of databases that allow spaces in entity names to begin with. What are they thinking? I have an old motto: Just because a thing can be done, doesn't mean it should be done. So the clever database designers could make spaces legal. Great. But at what cost to others down the road? Say we need to name a data column. Is "Last Name" really any better a name than "LastName?" If so, I'd really like to understand why.

Paradox, .NET, and the Wicked Back-Tick
Using spaces within database column names may be "legal," but that doesn't mean it won't make your life harder. It's legal in Paradox tables and most database systems but you might want to avoid using spaces. Here's why - and one way to use spaces if you're using Paradox tables under .NET.

Too dang funny! My friend, Marilyn, brought this article to my attention. She said she laughed all the way through.  So did I. The sad thing is that there's way too much truth in there.  Glad that doesn't happen here.

Grey Guru: Yes, I've programmed for the Dymo LabelWriters in Delphi; actually pretty much exclusively in Delphi. I haven't looked at the sample Delphi app. Perhaps it was released with a model newer than mine. To answer the other part of your question: Yes. It's just like coding for any other Windows printer. That's one of the beauties of the Dymo solution.  I've used Fast Reports to "drive my Dymos," and it all works just great.

Great Label Printers
Nice looking mailing and shipping labels make a statement about you - and/or your business. But printing to sheets of laser or inkjet labels can be a real pain when all you want are one or two labels at a time. This brief article talks about one line of label printers that's particularly convenient, inexpensive, plays nice on a network, and is super-easy to program.
