Pity!
OTOH it might be a good thing for your back to stop carrying bags around at
the age of...
.... you know how old you are ;-)

If I make a donation to the Museum Of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Fla. what
do I have to put in the remarks field of the cheque in order to get the
money to their "IT department's special forces"? Honestly, I'll be happily
sponsoring one of your toys, NX2 that is. Hey Geoff, don't make the update
too expensive!!! ;-)

Best regards
Stefan

Selfishly, I second that!!! ;-)

David: can't you get some bucks from your Ministry of Finances (ie,
your wife <vbg>)? Or ask the Museum some contribution?

Stefan: I haven't got that much money on my own, but I will put smthg
into that project. Let me know.

All the best to all,

Thanks troops for your kind remarks and offers of generosity. I really
won't need any help with my toys. My post was simply trying to be funny
.... I'm just going to have to find something different to do this
summer. The golf bag thing was getting thin anyway. The manager was
incompetent and didn't like me, and I didn't like him, so much of the
fun of it had disappeared ... and my younger son is moving away, and my
older son has two new children ... so I don't know who I would play golf
with anyway.

I just like to keep this group posted ... as the oldest living
Nexionian, I believe.

And I am damn sure growing older trying to get a handle on this
Pervasive junk.

By the way, I am no longer terribly worried about .NET. I do think you
younger guys should keep up with it just in case ... but the fact that
you have to have the framework installed sort of bothers me and makes me
question it's long term success. It really does remind me of the UCSD P
system which required interpreters to run ... but was platform
independent.

I really like the everything is in the exe approach we currently have.
Deployment is so simple and elegant ... Now if we could only get an inno
script to install the server as a serice ... giggle, giggle ...

Have a nice day all ... and thank you all from the bottom of my heart or
is it the heart of my bottom ... for your great support. I would walk to
the end of the earth for any and all of you ...

I'm on Prince Edward Island / Canada for 3 weeks in September. I'm bringing
my golf bag with me. If you like to travel the coast all the way to the
north, we can play a round or two.

Don't know 'bout Malcolm, he's a pretty mature chap, too.

Cheers

How did you guess? ;-)

Fortunately I don't lift bags (yet) <g>
I simply lift PCs more often than I'd wish.

Yes, I know Malcolm is an older Dude ... but I am practically as old as
Methusula, who is my fist cousin, I think. I'll be 73 in December.

Since Microsoft will include the framework with the operating system,
the long term shouldn't be a problem. The short term is the problem.

That's why I'm afraid *:-) (read my *rare* hair all pointing upwards)

Microsoft's *short* term is a whole living for us ;-)

Your (Davis Guest's) cousin should know that very well.
