So what would be your one question?

The Fox Show has been featuring interviews with the Southwest Fox speakers and other community members. Now every time I do an interview, I prepare a list of questions that deal with an upcoming session and their views on development, yada, yada, yada.

Now, although there is some advertising on the FoxShow, it's more to help cover costs than to make a million. In fact, in the last show, I made the point that if anyone in the FoxPro community wants to talk about a particular product, topic or just come on and tell me how wrong I am about everything, by all means please do. So it really is, similar to the Working Podcast, a community podcast.

So that said, I have an interview coming up with a member of the FoxTeam (KL) - and so now I'm asking you - what question do you want answered?

You can immediately dispense with the obvious ones: where is MS Marketing on VFP, when is VFP going to be in the CLR, etc- those are questions that have been asked and answered. And you can also see a lot of questions the group has already answered in David Stevenson's interview right during DevCon.

So with all the things that have been said at DevCon, on the VFP Web site, on the blogs, what is the one thing you want to know?

Let me know.


1. I'd like to utilize VFP Logos in my advertising, similar to the VB or
SQL logos that other shops use. How Do I legally utilize a VFP logo in any
advertising? If the answer is :
a) You can only use the box logo (or)
b) Please forward all advertising to us before you go to press (or)
c) You cannot use any VFP Logos on any advertising
then we absolutely need to put this to Ken's Boss, and Not Ken.

2. I would like a SKU # and price for VFP RunTimes that I can install on
any *nix machine.

3. The Programmer's Guide for VFP6 was a great printed resource. Will
there be a printed version for VFP 9 and later?

4. In the MSDN areas - there is no mention of VFP. When will you change
Looking for entries at:
and of that ilk. I am pleased it is finally listed here but I asked about its ommission
starting in Version 7, and it did not reappear until the launch of Version

1. I'll ask about the logos - wasn't there an initiative a while back for VFP developers to say "Built with VFP" - do you know whatever happened to that?

2. You KNOW the answer to that one. That door has been closed for a while now.

3. MS doesn't have printed programmer guides anymore - they sell books by third party authors instead.

4. It's there now - why bring up old stuff?

No, VFP isn't going to be listed under their Key Technologies but then again, neither is the Tablet PC.

Programmers vs. Developers vs. Architects

I received an email this morning from Brandon Savage's newsletter. Brandon's a PHP guru (works at Mozilla) but his newsletter and books have some great overall perspectives for developers of all languages. However, this last one (What's the difference between developers and architects?) kind of rubs me the wrong way. Either that, or I've just missed the natural inflation of job descriptions. (maybe, it's like the change in terminology between Garbage man and Waste Engineer or Secretary and Office Administrator)

So maybe it's just me - but I think there's still a big difference between Programmer, Developer and then of course, architect. The key thing here is that every role has a different perspective and every one of those perspectives has value. The original MSF create roles like Product Manager, Program Manager, Developer, Tester, etc - so every concept may pigeon hole people into different roles. But the statements Brandon makes are often distinctions I…

Security in Windows 10

 discusses some Windows 10 privacy settings and their implications.

"Finally, we will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary." "In other words, Microsoft won't treat your local data with any more privacy than it treats your data on its servers and may upload your local data to its servers arbitrarily"
I did a quick install on a VM choosing the Express settings. When I fully deploy this on a real workstation, I will likely choose to wade through all of the individual pages, as David recommends.

Of course, losing one's privacy is nothing new - it's happening all over the place (despite Santa Ana's police force's lawsu…


I'm not TRYING to be "fanboy-flame bait" but what I saw yesterday was a typical "Do it this way, now do it this way and then we'll go back to this way" all over again.... a move similar to what Microsoft does to developers on an ongoing basis.

Remember the first iPhone? Smooth and curved, at least as far as it could be back then. I still pull out my 3G and can see the curves on it.

Then the 4 came out and "boxy" was all the rage. Everything should be "tight with corners"

Now iPhone 6.... smooth and curvy is back. Granted I don't have the actual device yet, but that's the message.

Guess that means the iPhone 8 will be back to boxy.

And honestly, Apple Watch is not worth "one more thing" --- especially when everyone knows it's going to be shown. "One more thing" would be something no one saw coming.  The device itself ? Very interesting and yes, definitely lots of potential but "one more thing" wor…
