New E-book: VFP Best Practices for the Next 10 Years

Over at Shedding Some Light, Rick Schummer blogs VFP Best Practices E-book Available “Have you read some of the blog or forum posts touting the sessions at GLGDW 2006, and kicked yourself for not attending? Wish you had a second chance? Well Whil is giving you a second chance by releasing the session whitepapers as a new e-book: Visual FoxPro Best Practices for the Next Ten Years

What a great idea! I wish more of the conferences would offer their proceedings in electronic format! There is so much knowledge in those conference notes. While it’s nowhere near as good as attending the conference in person, these notes can be treasure troves of clever code and solutions.

Library Thing

I’ve added a sidebar to the blog showing off some interesting books from my library. has an interesting proposition: post your library online and share your book lists with others, tagging included. The Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee Linux User Group is maintaining their list of library books for loan on Library Thing, so I thought I’d try it with a barcode scanner/keyboard wedge I picked up at Hosstraders over the weekend. Looks like Library Thing is a cool application. I see Rick Borup is already posting FoxPro books up there, and I added my Hentzenwerke collection as well. Check out their tag cloud and the ability to subscribe (via RSS, of course) to tags, other people’s lists, topics, etc. Looks like fun.
