May 2005 GRAFUG Meeting Re-cap

May 21, 2005


The May GRAFUG meeting greeted us on a warm and sunny Saturday.  I’m sure the nice day and inundation of graduation parties, lawns that needed to be mowed and visiting relatives were forcing you to not come to get meeting…I am SURE it wasn’t the awesome donuts, and it wasn’t election time <grin>. 


For the three of us in attendance, we watched Doug Henning’s VFP 9 Extending the Reporting system at Run-Time webcast.  The webcast was quite thorough, and we stopped a few times to discuss what had been shown us.  I highly recommend taking the time to view the webcast when individuals have time to play it.



Next Meeting


Our next meeting is scheduled for June 18, 2005.  Tentatively we are anticipating hearing Mike Tempe talk about Virtual PC and how it will help you with development. The June 18th meeting will be the last meeting for the summer, so I hope to see you all there!
