Full text of article...

When I planned to go to Europe a year ago, I thought that would be my big event for 2018. Then this summer I had an opportunity to get my "forever home." I've been searching for several years, wanting something with some land and a view and a bit more seclusion. I found the perfect place just 10 minutes from town up on a hill and I jumped on it.

The timing seemed crazy, but when you find the right property, you can't dilly-dally. It worked out so I closed right after I returned from Europe—right on my birthday!

During the month of October I've been slowly moving to the new location (about 20 minutes from where I was). I'm still not done, with my office at the old house (I didn't want to disrupt it in the middle of an issue), so if I've been quiet on the Xojo front or slower to respond to emails, that's why.

In This Issue

Hopefully this issue won't be too self-centered, but I'll warn you it's mostly about my time in Europe at the Munich Xojo Conference, my travel adventures, and tips about working on the road. Though they're not very Xojo-oriented, I've included lots of photos. Don't worry—I have no plans of turning xDev into a travel blog.

We do have some other articles, with JC Cruz showing how to build a data-entry controller, and Jim Meyer writing about the challenges of upgrading old Xojo projects.

In our columns, we say good-bye to Craig, as he finishes his database series. Paul writes about Xojo 2018r3 and database transactions, and I talk about clipboard management. Enjoy!
