ASP Classic topic (classic post):
ADO Objects must be explicitly closed
by Kim Berry
Setting ADO objects to Nothing without first closing them might cause ASPMail to fail

 Monthly ASP Classic Lesson
OOP Topic:
Code Snippet of the Month

When an object instance is destroyed, ASP calls a special parameter-less sub named Class_Terminate. For example, when the variable falls out of scope. Since you cannot specify parameters for this sub, you also cannot overload it.

When an object instance is created from a class, ASP calls a special sub called Class_Initialize.

Class Cyborg

  Public Sub Class_Terminate
    Response.Write "<br>Class destroyed"

End Sub
End Class
ASP Classic Topic:
Run ASP pages on Linux/Unix! This software was originally developed by ChiliSoft.
Sun Java System Active Server Pages software allows organizations to deploy Active Server Pages (ASP)-based web applications on a variety of web servers and operating systems. ASP applications currently supported by Microsoft IIS can now be powered by the Java System Web Server for increased security. Legacy ASP applications running on Windows NT can be transitioned to the Solaris Operating System for ongoing maintenance and support.
ASP Classic Topic:
FAQ of the Month: Find Last Day of Week
Question:

How do you find last Monday? I want to return a date for last Monday or today if today is Monday.


Answer:
While Weekday(ADate) <> vbMonday

     ADate = DateAdd("d", -1, ADate)
WEnd

You could wrap this up in a function as follows: 

Function SU_GetLastDOW(ADate, AWeekDayConst)

    While Weekday(ADate) <> AWeekDayConst
        ADate = DateAdd("d", -1, ADate)
    WEnd
    
    SU_GetLastDOW = ADate
End Function

Tip of the Month

Call Application.Lock to freeze ASP code while you set IIS application variables the Application.Unlock to unfreeze. No actions take place on the server while locked. 

Application.Lock


Application(YourAppVar) = AValue
Application.Unlock
