I've used Delphi for the past 12 years, but now I need to get up to speed in C#. Since both systems were designed by the same person, there are lots of similarities. However, C# seems to have a big gap when it comes to centralized data access. All of the examples I've seen show the connections, commands and datasets and so forth all being placed on individual forms with no interconnection. The applications I work with have numerous primary and support tables with related queries and so on. If I have to redelcare these in every form where they …

I'm an experience Windows programmer and I'd like to do some work for my wife's school on Mac OSX. The trouble is, I have found no decent programming tools for that system.

I run a fish hatchery in Colorado and develop applications (mainly database and math) for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. …

The problem is that computers which have been had GIS mapping software installed report "Invalid http address" when synchroniztion is attempted. However, the server involved is visible to those machines. In the past few weeks, new laptops running WinXP have also showed the same problem, even …
