Excel Writer, which allows developers
to create Excel worksheets on the server on the fly. It's really neat, fast, and definitely worth checking

When 4GuysFromRolla.com started, a daily newsletter was sent out, called WebDaily.
For many months, WebDaily was received by about 200 loyal readers. Since then, it's
been growing fast! Today there are over 2,400 developers who receive what has now
become WebWeekly. My goal is to get that number up to 5,000 before the new millenium.
So, if you're not receiving WebWeekly, be sure to sign up today!

Over the past couple weeks we've added a slew of new ASP resources to the site. Here is a brief list of
the new types of ways you can obtain ASP information!
Attention all businesses in the North Georgia area. I (Ryan S.) am looking for a
job this summer in ASP development or software development using Visual
Basic. I have almost 3 years experience with ASP, and 5 years experience
with Visual Basic. Skills include intranet design, database
connectivity, component design, and GUI frontends for databasing
applications. Flexible hours are requested, but not necessary. Also, any
businesses outside the Georgia area who would like to hire me, I am
available to telecommute. Please send email to me with
information, and I will promptly reply. Thank you.

Unless this is your first visit to the site, you'll notice that we've done a
major overhaul! We hope you like the new design, and would like to hear your
opinions/comments on the layout. Please send any comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you live in Missouri and would like an ASP tutor to assist you or your
group in learning the ASP basics, your search has come to an end. I
(Scott Mitchell), ASP tutor, can
travel to your place of business to instruct you or your employees on
Active Server Pages! Rates are negotiable, and references are available

It's Spring Break here at UMR. There will be maybe only one or two
new articles added to the site over the course of the week. I'm teaching an ASP-class over break, and
have put together a good "Beginner's ASP" packet with many useful articles and code snippets. I will
hopefully have time this week to convert all of that into HTML files. Lastly, I will be in Redmond, WA.
from the 31st to the 3rd of April, interviewing for a Microsoft internship. If you know someone in Microsoft and
want to pass along a good word for me (or, for some reason, live near Redmond and would like to meet me),
go ahead and email me!
