GRAFUG Meeting October 11, 2008

Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting. It was great to see everyone.

GRAFUG-Specific News

Cathy Pountney has announced her resignation from holding any offices with GRAFUG. It was a tough decision, but she has decided to focus more time on her personal life. She currently holds the offices of President and Secretary. Official elections donít happen until December, but Cathy wants to give up her posts before then. If anyone is interested in stepping up and supporting GRAFUG, please let us know ASAP!! Cathy can help bring someone up to speed on either position.

News

     Win XP SP 3 Ė takes out your ability to use Amyuni  for PDFs. Version 2.5 or 2.6 fails, but version 3 plays nice with Vista and XP SP3.  There is a second official release of XP SP 3 with the same version number. If you grabbed the update soon, youíll have to do it again. Note that the automatic updates wonít grab this fix, you have to do it yourself.

     The VFP Home Page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vfoxpro/default.aspx) has a link to the latest information from Milind Lele. There are several updates that he recommends we get. They arenít Fox updates .. but other updates that affect Fox.

    Andy Kramek has announced on his blog that Southwest Fox 2008 will be his last speaking engagement. This is sad news, but understandable.

Main Presentation

Cathy Pountney practiced her Customizing Your Vertical Market Application session. What can I say, you had to be there.  It was great!  Rick Schummer did a fantastic blog about it and gave it a rave review (http://rickschummer.com/blog/2008/09/customizing-your-vertical-market.html)
