The lack of posts...


Beakman was wondering why I was not posting for the past three days before yesterday.

And just recently, I received a related inquiry from someone in India.

Aside from the fact that I refrain from posting those I'll-be-out-in-N-days/weeks-no-blogs-blah-blah(who-cares-who-fsckin'-cares) type of scribbles in here, I am also finishing up modules for two of my projects... HRAEI and SJH.

(HRAEI is an employee-related databanking system (201) for education-type institutions and companies while SJH involves medical history and records.)

HRAEI, in the future will probably be used in some places in this country separated by islands, so making things 'archipelago-ready' is something I am planning in advance. I'll discuss that one later.

For those three days, I've been extending the working hours to 4:45AM instead of the usual 3AM limit... which was really 5:30AM since it was only yesterday that I discovered that the clock in this computer is 45 minutes late.

No wonder I'm beginning to see things.

But I created and posted a one-time blog at TheSpoke.NET. The reasons are there so I won't bother re-posting things in here. If I'll do that, we'll have this spaghetti-type of codes already.

Blogs are like Procedures and Functions you know. Well at least that's how I see it sometimes. Instead of answering queries again and again, I fire up this blog, post some info and link the one questioning to a certain part of this blog that answers his questions.

OK... it is 3:33AM already... I need to crash.

But before that, allow me to leave you one snippet of the dawn:
   do while not eof() 
for i = 1 to nCount
cSTAT = 'PERSPOGR.STATUS' + NUMTOSTR(i, 2)
cSTAL = 'PERSPOGR.STATUS_' + NUMTOSTR(i, 2)
aSTAT(i) = &cSTAT
lStat = iif(aSTAT(i) != '00000', .T., .F.)
replace &cSTAL with lStat
endfor
skip
enddo

One of those little macro hacks of the night. (Storing the values in the array has some purpose which is not included anymore in the above snippet.)

I'm just showing here how an nCount*N lines of code can be squeezed into a factor of nCount by using macro substitution and by having good naming conventions in your field names, object names and variables.

WildFire here... over and out.
