If I want to get into mainframe programming is COBOL the way to go? 

by on July 20, 2010

Q: I am currently working in the non-profit world and manage a database program for client data. I have a Masters and Bachelor’s in social services. I would like to get into the programming field, primarily mainframe programming and have been told that COBOL is the language to learn. Any advice on how to start? It’s hard to find affordable classes in COBOL. What would be optimal is to find a company that would be willing to hire and train. Are there many of these out there? Where should I look. Are recruiters worth the effort? Any advice is appreciated.

Is there a device I can program where it will click certain spots on the screen when pressed? 

by on July 20, 2009

Q: Where can I find a very simple freeware program where I can control mouse clicks assigned to different points on my screen with my keyboard. I would also like to know if there is a way I could buy some sort of USB device like a keypad that I could customize and use to do these mouse clicks/macros. (ie I click a button on the device and it clicks a specific point on the screen and I press another button and it clicks another assigned position on the screen.)

Can I test a serial port application without actually having the hardware? 

by on March 13, 2009

Q: I wrote an application using VB6 to be able to receive data from a serial port and write that data to a text file until I either tell it to stop or the connection is gone.

My question is, I have no hardware to test my application, I have VB6 installed on my laptop. Is there a way to test it without hardware. The hardware is in another building 20 min driving from my place and it cost $22,000 so I cannot get it to my office and I don’t want to go there each time to test it. I saw some ads talking about null modem but i did not get it.
