For more years than I care to remember, and certainly over thousands of man-hours, I have enjoyed hacking out equipment maintenance systems. Indeed there have been dark days when this was my only recreation (but we won't dwell on that now)!

I have a program that has all the usual features (plus some unusual ones), but is DOS-based and therefore appears a bit dated to modern eyes. It is stand-alone, single user, but has an ability to access multiple data-sets if required. It was coded in FoxPro 2.6, which was (still is) a very powerful database management language in its day. You can get a flavour of my stuff from the screen shots at [this websitel]*.

Anyway, the bottom line is that, as part of my clearing-out process, and to make way for new projects, I am willing to pass on copies of this program to anybody who may find it useful. I can include dummy (example) data. If you want, I can also offer source code (so if you can make your own changes if you have FoxPro yourself). I can send this stuff out as an email attachment. If anyone is interested, get in touch through a personal message or email. smile

Hi Geoff:

May I have a copy of your data base? Please
I'm in the process of choosing a better database to manage the record of the equipment that comes to service & the spare parts inventory

Thanks in advance.

P. s. sorry but the English is not my native language

Nice looking database there Geoff.


Never under-estimate the predictability of stupidity

Geoff,
The site is looking good.
Still cannot make a connection between a humped backed camel and the past though? :p
Please enlighten......

Hi Geoff,
Please can I have a copy of Taskmaster for Windows?
I have been looking for a management database to manage all of the dental equipment I look after for Medway PCT.
I am starting from scratch really in this post as there are no computerised records of any of the equipment here or the service history etc, just stacks of papaer diaries so I need to get this sorted out ASAP and your database looks like it would be perfect for the job!

many Thanks
Angie

Mornin' Angie,

I was down your way yesterday. I could have called in. Unfortunately, though, it took me four and a half hours to get back to Gloucester due to M25 nightmares (so, what else is new?)! I'll try to get something sorted for you over the coming (wet?) weekend, but I'll need an email address (via PM). smile

Hi Geoff,
Since I got the the task to computerise our service shop, get rid of tons of paper work (sometimes I think I spend more tome in papers than at the work bench), I would very much like to see and try out your program. Thanks in advance
best regards
Milan
