Four Interesting Questions About Halloween

Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.

Opportunity Funnel for Women in Blockchain Tech

BitCoin, the number one crypto currency, has been around for about ten years. Currently, one BitCoin is worth more than one ounce of gold. I bought my first BitCoin back in 2014. I have noticed through the years that most of the people I see on TV or the Internet who are considered experts, pundits, or otherwise BitCoin insiders are mostly men.

Make Your Own MS Access Switchboard With the Tab Control

Several years ago when I started using MS Access regularly for my personal use, I used the Access built-in switchboard (sort of a main menu or table of contents) to organize my forms, reports and other objects.

The Access switchboard worked for a while, but as I added more forms and reports, categories and subcategories, it became clear to me that the built-in switchboard was more trouble than it was worth.
