The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
next make sure you point office file saving at the local hard disk (or file server), it defaults to onedrive. (Best is to google the instructions to disable onedrivel)
download notepad++ for a decent text editor that can keep the following item in a tab...
chuck a text file on the desktop for your less important passwords, as you get (or reset) passwords add it to this file. once in a while drag it onto a thumb drive or email it to yourself so *next time* you get a new machine you'll have them all a couple of clicks away.
Done (Chrome & Notepad++) the worst thing we 'have too use' oneDrive (but I have managed to avoid it so far, but I backed up My docs and all the other stuff that I use) Appear to have guessed the right password for Office, got My Computer on the desktop. Annoyed that I have to do it.
Does anyone here have some experience with Betty Blocks[^]?
It's supposedly a market leader in no-code rapid application software development.
One of my (future) clients wants to develop their product using Betty Blocks and they want my help.
At first I'll help them set up the application in Betty Blocks (they'll pay for a two to three day course in my own time), but when things get rolling they want my expertise for other things as well.
Think when we hit the limits of Betty Blocks, or when they get bigger, and they'll need some custom web services.
I had never heard of Betty Blocks until yesterday though
Is it any good? Is it really as "rapid" and easy as they say?
