Man, this is the gift that keeps on giving… Part 5? Really? Well as I said before, I’m just trying to keep everything in one spot. I think I’m talked-out […]
I was inspired to write a little more based on notes by Robert Houben and Bill Haskett. Rather than boring too many colleagues over in the U2 list with one […]
Part 3? In a single week? How did that happen? Well, I’m getting comments that spawn follow-ups. This is in response to a harmless (HA, you thought!) reference to Pinterest.
There has been a fascinating set of responses in email groups to my first post on this topic, and I sincerely respect and appreciate all comments and the time taken […]
Forums are no longer adequate. This blog entry begins a mini-campaign to get more MultiValue/Pick people into social media to exchange business/technical information.
This is for people who administer Google Groups in the MV community and elsewhere. I’ve been noticing over the last few months that emails I get from forums have two […]
I usually don’t post code tips but since I haven’t published anything in a while, I thought I’d post this tidbit on how to use Include items elegantly.
When creating browser applications for Pick applications, people frequently ask how they can execute some code on the PC/client with instructions from the server. We do this all the time […]

The astute user of technology doesn’t trust it.
This is a sort of follow-on to one of my postings last month. My intent here is to kick off some forum discussions based on today’s posting. The question in […]
Over the years I’ve done a lot of work with the internals of Excel and most of the other Microsoft Office applications, integrating them in some way with Pick/MV business […]
Web2.0, SOA, SaaS – there are similarities and vast differences but what they all have in common is that MV business applications are generally not prepared for any of them. […]
I didn’t intend for this to be a big deal (see prior post about comp.databases.pick) but as soon as it got started it sure turned into one. I’m committed to […]
An initiative is underway to replace the Usenet/NNTP forum comp.databases.pick with a Google Group. This is a big deal. What do you think?
It’s amusing when people ask if something is technically possible, or “envision if you will” some concept, as though other people haven’t already envisioned or even coded a prototype or […]
Over the last year I’ve been working intensely with telephony apps which integrate with MV – and I’ve blogged on this topic as well. This includes voice in/out and SMS […]
