Mike Prestwood
Prestwood name change
We're thinking about changing the name of our company from Prestwood Software & Consulting to just Prestwood Software. Now that The original thought behind the longer name was that we wanted everyone to be able to identify by our name that we are a consulting firm and software maker. The reason we're thinking about shortening it is because it is shorter. Confused Prestwood Software & Consulting is harder say, longer to write, etc. So the central question is, "Is the '&Consulting' required?", , Any thoughts? Big Grin!

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.

You know what's so geat about the old style sneakers? If you step in any BS, HS or DS, you can throw them in the washing machine. Usually though, the sneakers go back on one's feet a lot like the glove went back on OJÆs hand, which some might consider BS.

Professional Resume Service
Ok so being a developer does not always give one the skills to write an effective resume. Can anybody recomend a service to craft a good professional (technical) resume? I've been writing my own for years and I think my version just doesn't accurately express my experience., , Thanks in advance.

I'm new here
Hello everyone. This is the first forum I have ever joined. I'm an accounting/finance type who started doing a lot of programming in Microsoft Access. People call me an expert, but my definition of an expert is anyone who knows a little more than you do., , Originally I wrote applications for myself, so I didn't have to worry about the user-friendliness. I would write queries to extract the information I needed at the time. However, I am now writing Access Applications for other departments and have to make them very user-friendly. Everything has to be automatic, therefore, i must utilize macros, etc and create user friendly forms. That is where my problems begin and I hope I can find solutions within this group., , I'll offer any help I can, but don't expect much of me at first., , Be talking to you., , Jocat

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 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.

    Website Problem
    Sorry, I can't find anywhere else to post this and I know RT slips around down here now and then. When I am logged in, I click on my profile and I am immediately instructed to either register or login. I click the login link, assuming this is some type of security whatsit, and then I get the same message. So... I can't get to my profile. What gives?

    Trouble at mill?
    Have you been having problems with the boards or server thingies as for the last couple of days it has been taking what seems like hours to load the boards? Other web pages seem to behave as normal and there is no difference if I use another ISP. , By the way 'trouble at mill' is some strange olde north of England expression which appears to mean 'trouble at mill'and probably of the cotton variety during the industrial revolution when CPM was invented., rt Roll Eyes

    New Quote Post Feature!
    Now you can quote a particular thread post as part of your reply. Check out the new Quote option that is part of every post. Cool I also cleaned up the thread view so that it looks a bit cleaner and contains more white space. Each post of a thread is now separated from the other replies and the thread starter always gets a white background (the rest alternate between light gray and lighter gray). Enjoy!

    Server Slow Down
    I just got back from camping in South Lake Tahoe and found the message boards have been slooowwww for days. I rebooted the server and it seems to be working fine now...hmmm...not sure why. I don't know if it was resources, a virus, or a hacker. Oh well., , Tomorrow morning I'm heading back to South Lake Tahoe for camping (my family is there now). I came back to meet with a client for Delphi training for the day). I'll be back Monday. Until then I'll have someone here check the boards daily.
