FoxShow #35: An Interview with the legal side of John Petersen Sorry for the late show but I've been editing interviews. Rather than make an extra long show, Episode #35 features a part of my interview with John Petersen (YES! that JVP) about legal issues that developers need to be aware of.

The interview takes up most of the show (save for the opening and the ad) - he identifies very valuable issues for Visual FoxPro and other developers to be aware of.

Dabo Part 1: The AppWizard I posted this on my own blog but I also wanted to make sure that if you wanted to take a peek at Dabo, the open-source database development environment written by VFPer's Ed Leafe and Paul McNett, you could see some of it here. It uses Python and MySQL. The video is in Windows Media format - not exactly multi-platform ready - if you're on a new iPod, let me know and I'll put up a Quicktime version. There's a lot more to it - but it's taking me forever to get this out of the hour long overview Ed gave me. The other pieces will be coming shortly. We'll be talking to them soon on the FoxShow as well - so if you have questions, shoot them my way and I'll be sure to ask when we do it.

One of the goals I've had for a long time is to try and keep the show under 30 minutes - ideally around twenty. As listeners know, this is incredibly difficult with interviews that typically last that long. So what do you think? Should I separate interviews into their own "show" ( a la BuzzOutLoud model) and thus keep the shows down in length or keep them all in one big show. It may really depend on your player. For example, when I use the Creative Muvo, it keeps track of where I am with each show and thus when I stop and restart, it picks up right where I left off. Other devices may not be so lucky. Let me know. Take My Poll
