We have faith in FoxPro's future.


I may be occupied ('occupied' used instead of 'busy', for the latter seems so overused these days that if each of the letters are to be converted (even in its compressed format (parallel worlds not included)) to food, there would be no need for noble campaigns such as ONE and MakePovertyHistory)...

Let's do that sentence again.

I may be occupied with TheLair V7 creation these days in between client visits but that doesn't mean that I'm not aware of the news about YAG's departure from the VSData team.

And this comes at a time where FoxPro is soaring high in the TIOBE rankings (which leaves even some humans wondering), the proliferation of insightful FoxPro-related blogs and all those positive fox-vibes which we've seldom seen in the past fox years.

I'm looking at the FoxPro team picture which was featured inside that VFP9 CodeFocus issue and MIGHTYAG will be the Nth person leaving from that crew.

Mike... John Koziol... Randy Brown... Ken Levy and now YAG.

Honestly a part of me wants to be as optimistic as Andrew. Really it's a cool job and I'm pretty sure one way or another FoxPro will benefit strategically from it.

Craig Berntson's prophecies, though, haunt the northern hemisphere of my brain.

Plus I'm starting to hear darklings chanting 'Denial! Denial! Denial.' in the background.

Seven of Yoda's fleas armed with green light sabers are guarding my back so I'm safe from these creatures for now.

For those who are wondering, these are how darklings look like.

Currently I don't have a picture of Yoda's fleas but somehow they look a little similar to Top Cow's Angelus character. (Yes... envy my back.)

But despite of these negative forces, I still believe in FoxPro. I believe in its future.

I have faith in FoxPro's future.

Now I was in the process of balancing these thoughts when my pet tiger Bruno butted in.

'Now who's working on Visual Foxpro?', he asked.

I rushmored my brain, but still, it took me around 17 seconds before I could find a reply.

'The community, Bruno. The community.'

With that I dismissed him, since qs and I still had to prepare for yesterday's client demonstration.

cSTR01 = 'I believe in the community that supports Visual FoxPro, as well.'
cSTR02 = 'I have faith in FoxPro`s future.'
cEnter = InsertSTText(at(cSTR02, ThisBLOG), IRchar(13) + IRchar(13) + SetTF(cSTR01, 'B'))

... and I believe in a future with FoxPro and it's legacy in it.
