Company Info topic:
Prestwood IT Social Networking Strategy
by Mike Prestwood

Social networking is a bit confusing! Emailing and calling are still the standards. Is faxing still ok? What about Facebook? Do I friend someone or become a fan of their fan page? Wait, what happened to fan pages? Are they now Facebook pages? What about Facebook groups? What about LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, and others?

The following articles are posted to the PrestwoodBoards knowledge base:

The Prestwood Strategy: Although we still prefer phone calls and email, we do use social media to reach out. Our primary form of social networking is not with our clients, but with fellow IT professionals at PrestwoodBoards.com. Use the link above to learn more including how to interact with Prestwood IT, our other websites and groups, and our staff including Mike Prestwood.

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

Answer:

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.
