There’s a Mr. Murphy here, and he’s got a torch.

A special issue of CoDE magazine, called CoDE Focus, has been released for VFP 9. I know in the past, Microsoft underwrote these issues, though I don’t know if it is true for this one. Great articles by Doug Hennig, Cathy Pountney, Rod Paddock, David T. Anderson, and more!
