The best part of Wakin’ Up…

October 17, 2001

Did some work this morning for Home Health and Hospice. They have a whole gaggle of Fujitsu Lifebook B laptops in and they are sweet. They are lighter than my Apple Newton and remind me of the new iBooks. About the same scale but the Lifebooks have a larger screen. Some of the work now involves live databases on laptops being merged with data on an SQL server. It’s really an interesting procedure, but it take wayyyyy tooooo long.

I just installed Crystal Reports at work and I’ll be going to class soon on it. I peaked around in it, but I wasn’t able to get anything working. I really don’t have the time for it. I do want to know, since my phonebook program would run a lot better if Crystal was tied in. I think my Mom knows Crystal Reports pretty well, so I might ask her for some help.

I started playing around with the css generators in Dreamweaver. I think it would work for this site, I’m going to see what I can do. I think all of the tables slow down the site, but with css they would render faster and be nicer for those on modem connections (like me). I’m going to secretly replace the “typical coffee” site with a new “Folger’s Crystals” site and see how it works, then I’ll announce if it does.
