Hank's Tips: renamed PSP Tips
Hank's Tips, now renamed PSP Tips to indicate the broadening of authorship to include other ProSysPlus authors, is a one-way maillist -- you sign up and get a tip almost every day (Sunday will ordinarily be a day of rest; Saturday could be too <s>). The idea is to take whatever strikes my fancy as a useful tidbit of knowledge that day, and spread it about. The tip will almost always be about VFP and VPM, but it could be about an NT or 98 service pack that folks should get.
It's a one-way list because I haven't got time to manage a free-swinging maillist -- but readers are encouraged to write me if I am, er, slightly less that fully accurate <g>.
Why do it? Partly it's a way for me to get into writing the things I know. Partly it's useful to the software development community in which I spend a great deal of my time. And partly it's great advertising for the advanced developer training I offer. Which relates to getting into writing the things I do: the idea of the training is to get people in step with what I do as a developer. Finally, I'm in the final stages of preparation for a web site that will feature searchable help with a couple of special twists. And most of the tips I put down here will appear there, in one form or another. The Tips list should, I hope, provide an easy way for folks to encounter, or re-encounter ("yeah, I remember that now...") some knowledge before they need it.
The really big reason to do it, though, is that it will let me concentrate my Advanced Training class on hands-on development. There are a zillion little things you have to know to be productive; and then you've got to actually do it. And have the opportunity for followup in doing it. That's what Advanced Training provides.
To sign up for the list, click here in order to send the list an email message (you'll still have to push Send). The only thing you need to do is make sure your formatting is set to plain text: my little listserver doesn't do fancy text.
The Old Tips site is down for the moment, due to recent site changes. It was a successful experiment, but the patient died. <s> It'll be back soon, in a new form.

As always, if things go wrong, email me directly.
