        Meeting Announcement: Thursday, March 28, 6:30-9pm      

        Topic:  Real-World Client/Server Data Entry in Delphi

                David Orhem, a Delphi and Paradox expert, will speak
                about data entry issues in a client/server
                transaction based environment.  Attendees of earlier
                meetings may recall David's excellent presentation,
                with Mike Isbell, on object-oriented programming.

        RFD: comp.binaries.ms-windows.delphi
        Mark Williamson <ome...@sisna.com> has posted a Request
        For Discussion (RFD) for a moderated internet newsgroup
        dedicated to publishing Delphi binary files.  

        An RFD is the first step in forming a new newsgroup.  
        During the discussion phase, people raise and resolve
        objections.  Here are some typical kinds of questions to
        get you started:

        - Who needs another binary newsgroup, anyway? they
          waste bandwidth!

        - Who is this Mark character? and why should we let him
          moderate the newsgroup?

        Now's your chance to have some input into this process.
        The original RFD was posted to news.announce.newsgroups.
        Discussion should be directed to news.groups.

        If there's any interest, the next step will be a Call
        For Votes (CFV).  Stay tuned...

        WebHub Seminar
        Ann Lynnworth is giving a seminar on WebHub, HREF Corp's
        Delphi-based web tool.

        It will be April 2-3 at PCSI in Englewood, NJ.
        People should register by sending Ann email <a...@href.com>.

        Many thanks to those of you who expressed interest in being
        guinea pigs for my forthcoming book on Java.  I've got the
        requisite number of complete Java novices at this point
        (this is a beginner's book).
