Happy November 1st.
Time to update the main blog page, generate last month’s comments, and stuff like that. Piece o’ cake. Done in less than 10 minutes. Pretty nifty routines, too. I have a VFP Web Service installed on the web server. I use a vfp program locally to query the web server and update the entries for the dates of interest, which are then stored into a local table. A small program, MakeCal?.PRG, generates the meta-markup language used to generate a new month, and then I use yet another VFP program to extract the information for an entire month and generate it as text files. I copy each separately to the clipboard and paste them into the appropriate web page. Voila!
