There are 40 unanswered posts from this past week prior to my post. Why
haven't you tried to help these folks? There is no reward in heaven for
criticizing me but much reward to gain by helping these folks.

Does anyone know how to do a "screen scrape" to get data off a website and
enter it into an Access table?

Thanks for all help?

Steve,

Please re-read my post. While I admittedly was enjoying a laugh (a very
good one) at your expense, I was not in any way being critical. I would
assume that in the many, many answers you have given in this NG, you have
probably answered some of mine (even if someone else actually asked the
question).

I do appreciate your time. I know how valuable time is.

But you must admit, he pegged you.

There are two kinds of people on
this group: available consultants and
potential customers. I would love to
come to this group and say, "HEY
EVERYONE I CAN FIX IT HIRE
ME!!!!". I just think that's inappro-
priate for this group.


That is in accord with USENET guidelines and the FAQ for this newsgroup.

I've wanted, for some time, to add a
sig line to my posts and use these
groups more frequently in hopes of
getting the word out, but I don't. I'm
sure others feel the same way. Usenet,
especially these tech groups, is not
a place where its acceptable to hock
your wares.


The people in this newsgroup, except some who'd gripe about anything and
troll when they aren't griping, have never objected to posters including a
moderate amount of contact information in a SIG (there's no absolute limit,
but 4 lines doesn't seem to be objectionable in most newsgroups).

Where to advertise? How to get the
word out on what you do? That's off-
topic to this group. To answer that
question I would suggest people try the
newsgroup misc.business.marketing.
moderated, misc.business.consulting or
alt.computer.consultants.moderated.
(FWIW, I moderate two of those
three groups.)


Nor, have the people here (same exceptions) objected to a reference to a
commercial product when it is a specific and valid answer to a legitimate
question. Because so many people here do contract work for pay, and because
that isn't a specific answer to a question, many "non-gripers" have
complained about Steve's "I can help you for pay" responses.

You could just contact that server with your own HTTP request. Not
terribly difficult to do and then you can decode the response in
code.

The WinInet library has a bunch of API calls to do just this.

[Excess newsgroups trimmed]

A sense of humor will go a long way toward getting one there. Lyle has
already answered more than his share, and now gets his reward in redheads.

You've been around here long enough to know that, but perhaps not long
enough to *know* that.
