When you see a returning clinet, you know that they like you (or that your price is too low :-) ).
Any how, I got a returning client for the first time in few years now, it is clear that they liked my work (and possible my prices too). This time with a complete new project. Read more >>>

This is the second time, the first time was back in 2003 when I was creating some project that has long loops, and it needed me few days to discover that the best way to handle these long loops is to combine between Excel cell functions and VBA WorksheetFunction
You see in case you are struggling here
to go through each row in a sheet, we can one of the following:

I am not sure if the hacking attempt late last year or I messed something up while using my Excel-based website admin, my DB was messed up and I had to spend around 3 hours to clear and restore.
I really need to finish that Excel-based DB autobackup application soon.
So the limited plan I thought I have is not so "Limited"
My files online have crossed the 25GB limit, that made the people at my hosting company to contact me and complain that my files is taking too much space and I need to delete some.
IT was a shock, but I remember that there was talking for a while about how "Unlimited plans" are not so "Unlimited". Read more >>>
After several attempts, I was able to make a macro to protect itself (protect the VBA project in VBE).
This is very rarely used and may not be successful. Read more >>>
I know it is all around the net, this tip has been helping a lot in my VBA coding.
The funny part is that I don't use it much, but when I need it I have to go online and search for it.
So, smarty pants here decided to put it on my blog, and when searching, I can find it faster. Read more >>>
Spent few hours (when was trying to fix one of my clients email issues) into moving most of my sites to my own server.
This was prepared for few weeks now, in addition to my client sites, I also moved File1.net, DCave.com, TrioCouture.com, VBAXLMan.com. Most of them were linked to this site.
The new challange now is to host email server on my own and start providing email services.
Ok, I admit, I did it without thinking
I failed to pass the 700 points of Mictosoft Office Specialist 2010 Word Expert (MOS) from the first time,
I went to the test without any ideas of what I am going to face, and the level of test was high, so I failed, next time, I will prepare for it. Read more >>>
I knew I will reach this point someday, I just got 7 phone calls about 2 positions, they are the same 2 positions and 7 people called me about them, yes, I am bragging.
Chicago turned to be a very good place for my career, it is cold here, but the job market here within my experties is just fantastic Read more >>>
After few days of setting it up, I now have Microsoft SQL database along with MySQL database and PHP.
I needed also to install Wordpress, which I installed few hours ago.
I have these sites now on my own server:
These are the first three sites, in preparing to move in completely to host my own sites on my own server.
I started these days uploading my own VBA function lib to my website.
You can find them by search for VBA function
These are the actual tools that I am using in my daily VBA programming in Excel (and sometimes in Classic ASP). Let me know if you have any question regarding any of those.
I did it, I have now my own server, that is online, expandable to multiple sites, fast, and linked to certain IP.
IT took me around two months (actually around 36 hours) of trial and error attempts to work around the limitation of my ISP along with some resources online. Read more >>>
Windows 8 will suppurt VB6 (As this article 6 on 8? Will VB6 be supported on Windows 8? Yep (mostly)! says).
Sometimes the bad news here are actually good, it means we can still be alive for at least 7 years from now (up to 2019), even though the VB6 is kind of old, I guess Microsoft still stuck with it since most of VBA platforms are in VB6 and most of them are actually running entire organizations.
At least this is my openion.
After few months of working in ANmars.com (also ANmar.us) I notice that the home page is kind of slow.
So I give it a thought and decided to go a head and update my SQL commands in the home page only to be faster.
Basically what I did was combining all home page SQL commands into one (actually two) instead of the way it was executing (was executing around 15 SQL commands).

This one sound promising!!
The previous one I tried (was Visual Studio 2005) was tough to jump into, since I needed to try the ASP.NET, It was hard to jump from Classic ASP into ASP.NET of VS2005.Read more >>>
After some busy days and good/bad time management, I need some rest, It was a busy week, with lots of new projects (at least now I have 4 need to deliver next week).
I kind of like it, this projects traffic, but it looks like I do have some limit.
This is a very good diagram that shows how the web developing and related design knowledges are structured.
Check it out, it is very helpful to understand it. Read more >>>
Now that is another story, I already know that Programming is the easy part, documenting what the programmer does is completely another tough part.
It is again happend, I have to do the documenting for the ACuSys system, it is taking me a lot of time, and need to remember a lot of old stuff I did and why I did that.
However, the client is happy with it and might have some new chances in the future to do more like these.
Just got my new BlackBerry 8530, I am really going to love this, it has a lot of features, except the Skype and MySQL applications.
It is a project we started, to do BB/web software for BlackBerry users, especially in the Arabic/Islamic fields in eMacros, based on the study that says, there are few applications of this kind in that market.
The project will last for 6 months and we will see where this will take us.
These are just few lines I got today in the email for the recent project work I was busy with. We had really rush time and low info to do what we done, however, we did it after few missing deadlines. See the full article for the customer feedback.Read more >>>
It looks like sometimes the complicated solution (advanced one) will not be as effictive as the simple cheap one.
I was used to reCaptcha for a while now, even though i am facing some spam recently though that.
So I am changing to a simple one, after few searches, I got this one.
It is stupidely simple, let me see if it will work and prevent the spam or not.
Here is a list of software I can not live without:
I like when I get busy, but I hate neglecting other projects as well, I am busy these days with some projects:Read more >>>

Why people can not believe that I did my website File1.net on my own?
From scratch, in ASP and MySQL using my background in VB with some help from online tips and forums
Do I look like someone who can not do something like this?
