Its been interesting here, I read some of the longer threads and find interesting members of the Mac community from all perspectives. Island, you are one of my favorites, along with ragosta, addabox and flaneur. Too many garbage threads now. I'm going to lurk on some other apple news and rumor sites, I'll check back in in a couple months. I don't know if two mods are on vacation or what happened to this site, but seeing island get slapped with infractions for what he...
I've looked at it two years ago, went straight to the relational parts and it had not improved much. Just couldn't do more than rudimentary relationships. Can't do sub-tables, or have fine control over it, pain in the ass kludge linking. Fine for simple things but only that.
Oh, I really agree with you. Everywhere I've ever worked, IT and Accounting worked in the same general area, all for the purpose of generating the info management needs about the business. MS Access is much better than the old FileMaker I tried. When creating a database one MUST set up the relational structure. The whole POINT of a database is to eliminate duplication inherent in trying to use a spreadsheet to enter information. And to be able to assign fields to your...
I'll go on record to state that i think that the Internet IS a natural right. Not having Internet connectivity in this day and age is worse than not having a phone number. If we had a supreme court that gave a shit they would take it up and say so. The Internet has become part of our private effects and our household. Just like you can't cyberstalk or bully, neither should you be allowed to commercially harrass in an intrusive way via the net.
Same here, we pay per SMS message. I looked up 'spam text' under my phone provider. They say to check the texts for 'opt out' links and use them. If that doesn't work, you can 'reply' on the iPhone by hitting the 'edit' button, which allows you to select the message and Forward it...to a special number where it will be purged from your line. For AT&T in our area the number is 7726. They send you back a message that texter is now blocked and you won't be charged. If it is...
If only that would work. The Do Not Call list is a joke and is widely disregarded. Even if you sign up for an unlisted number...I just got interrupted typing this by a lawn care service trolling for business on our unlisted private brand new number. There will always be places on the Internet where you can look up new phone numbers, hell, those get called MORE. The DNC list is a crock as cable phone service is EXEMPT from that law...nice loophole. Also, there are always...
Not the same. By age 80, >50% of us have some level of dementia. Look up alzheimers. The sad thing here is the world moves by so fast, that there is no caretaker for this lady. She, like so many many others is out there trying to do whatever she thinks she needs to do, however addled it may be. Where's her relatives? Busy with their own lives. She probably drives daily, a truly horrendous thought. I hope when I'm 80 there is pod transportation so that I need not drive....
I stopped reading that rag ages ago. In a field of products with similar qualities they recommend some seemingly arbitrary item with four stars. Except it's not arbitrary at all. They are wined and dined and whichever company wines the most gets the 'tops in category' rating. Apple doesn't do that silly stuff. They make their products, the people let them know if it's great or not. So, i guess they have another 'enemy' because they wont play the usual games, including...
Dumbest question of the day, does the new iPad have Siri on it?
The only way to improve content would be to have new content written. That would mean hiring WRITERS for heavens sakes. The studio execs, all of them, are allergic to artistic talent. They are low rise obstacles.Whether Apple does anything or nothing-- there will ultimately come a day when we have freelance blogger journalists, and lots of kids writing and filming all kinds of content that WILL find its way out. The cream will rise to the top. That day just cannot get here...
