>Subject: DXBase 97 -- Getting Even Better!
>If you haven't yet tried DXBase 97, you ought to give it a try;
graphically, it is really superb!
>One thing that really bugged me about DXBase 97 was the "synchronization"
routine -- the requirement to periodically insert the CD to start the
program. But Jack Lennox has taken this constructive criticism to heart, and
virtually immediately created a "fix" so that it is no longer necessary to
insert the CD once the software has been loaded into your computer. You can
download the fix at DXBase's Web Site:
>Since DXBase 97 is so new, there are some issues in addition to
synchronization that need to be addressed (I have communicated a few of them
to Jack). It is reassuring to know that he listens and takes appropriate
corrective measures when they are warranted.
>Usual disclaimer:  I have no financial interest in DXBase or Scientific
Solutions, Inc.  But recently there has been flaming of DXBase 97 which
appears to me to be premature and unfair.
