We don't usually link to articles on other websites in the Prestwood eMag, but this month I couldn't resist...

10 Operating Systems the World Left Behind 
By Matt Lake, Computerworld
Matt takes you on a tour of operating sytems over the last 40 years including dead, dying, and under-used operating systems. I loved Matt's article. It brought back many memories.

My personal experience started with Commodore computers (C64 and C128) so I started on Commodore Basic 2.0, CP/M, and GEOS. From there I moved to the Amiga, NeXT, and Macintoshes finally giving in to Bill Gates when I was hired at Borland International.

If you're a long-time computer user, you'll enjoy Matt's article. If you're relatively new, Matt's article serves as a wonderful overview.

Question: Can you edit Access and MS SQL Server views?


Although this question really depends on the provider, in general, the answer is no to MS Access views and yes to MS SQL Server views so long as you open the RecordSet editable.

ASP Classic Topic:
Tip of the Month

When naming constants, Microsoft suggests you prefix each constant with "con" as in conYourConstant. Although, they also say the older all caps with words separated by an underscore is still acceptable (i.e. YOUR_CONSTANT).

Because I code in multiple languages and I really don't like all caps with underscores, I've adopted a lowercase k in place of con as in kFeetToMeter.
