    My day job

    A number of people seem to think I work full time in the pool industry. If anyone wants to know what I actually do for my day job, check out my latest app for the iPhone and iPad at the Apple App Store.

    Neat!, so you are a programmer and your wife is a shamanic healer (opposites attract!). I did notice that on the fool's dog website the "about" page changes the window title of the site to "ourcompany.com" Since you are into apple products do you ever use filemaker?

    I used to use Filemaker, long long ago. These days I use MySQL and PHP to do the same kinds of things.

    I'm using filemaker today to run my business, we have a laptop running the server and we connect to that server via cellphone tethered laptops. It's a little slow but it's the only way that I know of to keep everything in sync when you have multiple service trucks making invoices. Filemaker is way better than MS access in this and many regards.
