Neither are trivial to use. Steelyman, you have nerves of steel to attempt such a project. I tip my hat to you.

Yes, it does sound like work, doesn't it? But if I actually accomplish something, it'll be useful to me and keep my brain engaged so it's worth a try to me.

I admire the people in a recent thread discussing learning how to create apps. Go get em, tigers!

That's a thought but my current financial outlay is $0.00, which when you don't work is a nice round number!

If I screw up, no one to blame but me, which is fine.

That's good to know. If I were doing this at work, it would been on an Ubuntu machine that I found easy to use.

So for the gui it is not surprising you had to go back a few versions.

This is a home computer I bought back around '07, with pre-installed Vista Home Premium. The only piece of MS software I bought for it was Office, only because they offered large academic discounts. It has Access, but says I to Access, "shoo, fly!".

The CDs I mentioned arrived the other day. One is Louis Prima, Jump, Jive 'n Wail.

Do I have a database yet? No, but I do have Prima, Angelina, and the pizzeria!

"I eat antipasto twice just because she is so nice: Angelina."

(I'm referring to REW's "Happy Valentine's Day" post a couple of weeks ago)

You could download Ubuntu and burn it to cd/dvd and try running it on your old machine from the cd/dvd as a quick test.

If you stuck in a new drive, unplug the windows drive, and you could install Ubuntu on that machine on the new drive.

If you are really comfortable with computers you can of course set it up to dual boot.

Thanks, Sunset, that's an option and I do have USB sticks to spare for a LiveDVD download. Most have work stuff on them - who needs that?

But I also got the MySQL packages working on Vista so now is time for design and entry. I've hired myself to do that but my new employee takes a lot of lonnng lunches!
