FoxPro Content on Advisor

As you may know, Advisor has consolidated all their technical magazines into Databased Advisor. Life in the business world goes in circles and Advisor has come full circle if you recall the history of Advisor and their FoxPro offerings. It all started with Databased Advisor covering several database languages including FoxBase/FoxPro. The split the FoxPro content off into FoxPro Advisor, changed the name to Advisor Guide to Microsoft Visual FoxPro, and have now consolidated it back to Databased Advisor.

While I see some value in having access to all the content, to me at least it just gets in the way of finding the excellent FoxPro content written by the usual suspects (Christof Wollenhaupt, Tamar Granor, Pamela Thalacker, Andrew MacNeill, Ceil Silver (now Mike Lewis), Rick Borup, Rick Strahl, Doug Hennig, Andy Kramek and Marcia Akins) and the cast of others who contribute less frequently.

So I emailed Advisor and asked how I can see just the FoxPro content and they quickly responded with the following link:

    Since when did Ceil Silver turn into Mike Lewis! I just saw Ceil at SW Fox and she certainly didn’t look like Mike Lewis!

    Very funny Cathy. {g}

    For those out of the loop, Mike Lewis took over the tips column from Ceil Silver. It definitely is one of my favorite columns in the mag, and I expect Mike will do a great job.

    I was going to ask if you knew something about me and a sex-change operation that I hadn’t heard… but Cathy beat me to the punch. :)

    IAE, I have been to the Advisor site through the link you posted, and I find it very difficult to navigate and very disappointing.

    The biggest problem I see is that nothing is dated. It’s not at all like reading a magazine. You can’t browse it and see a current issue. It all runs together in a very ugly and confusing mess.

    Presentation is just as important as content in its own way. I can’t imagine who will continue to subscribe to it!
