Since Yahoo is slowly killing its discussion lists, some of the Firebird “official” discussion lists are being moved to GoogleGroups.
Firebird-support seems to be the first one:
Hello Firebird-support members,
The firebird-support list is moving to Google Groups. The new location is https://groups.google.com/d/forum/firebird-support
Unfortunately we cannot migrate the current Yahoo! subscribers, and you will need to resubscribe yourself, in one of two ways:
(1) If you have a Google account, log in to Google, go to the group’s home page https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/firebird-support;context-place=overview), Click the link labelled ‘Join this group’ and follow instructions there.
(2) Without a Google account, you can apply to join by emailing this address using the email account you want to use for communicating with the group:
You should receive a confirmation email. Respond as directed to complete. (this does not require a Google account).
For posting to the list you can use email@example.com
Note, if you are subscribed to more than one Firebird-related Yahoo! group, your will need to go trough a similar process for each of your groups.Helen Borrie for Firebird Project
I’m now going through piece of SQL code that contains a lot of stored procedures from over the years and lately also functions (in last year the migration to Firebird 3 really began) and looking into the code to identify functions and procedures to start the rewriting with using FbNetExternalEngine. I’m at the beginning, but I have some interesting piece I’d like to show.
