    Default I strongly agree

    With Ira Perlow's thoughts posted in response to my message "It seems a shame" We should not use this board for anything other than very UK specific postings otherwise we dilute the vast resource of technical knowledge contained within the forum. I think we should mainly use it to introduce ourselves and what we do in order that we can try and get a coherent UK user group going. So to that end here is my profile.

    Hello All,

    Just a short note to introduce myself
    Thomas Holt, Based In Watford, Hertfordshire
    I have been using Alpha for almost 3 years now. In that time I feel I have grown hugely as an Alpha developer (although I still have a MASSIVE amount to learn).
    To date I have only developed databases for the company I am employed for.
    These have involved applications for Travel, Pet, Home Insurance and Bill Protector, Generating quotes, Processing sales, Producing all relevant paperwork sending and receiving data to and from the underwriters. Processing various types of Bank Payments. Other apps developed to date include Telecoms and Fuel supply systems. All systems deal with full customer history of queries, complaints, payments, etc (and all other relevant things I can’t think of at the moment)


    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi All,

    I also agree with Ira & Bob, I think we should ONLY use this board for specific UK issues. At the moment I can't think of any issues that could ONLY be addressed by UK users alone. It would be a pity to split the available resorces, this I feel would not benefit anyone. I have often found, the answers for some of my problems have already been posted in other threads.

    Regards,

    Have been an Alpha user since 1991 (Version 1)
    Have written many applications and have clients all over the UK. The biggest application is used by the record industry for collecting and mailing out for "pop" bands. In exccess of 4.5 million names and addresses.

    Hello All,

    I am new to Alpha V and have been involved with a small migration project from Alpha IV to V v4.5.

    I am slowly developing my knowledge of this product and hope to become a meaningful contributor.

    Best Wishes
