Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: Catalog of CD-ROMs
Posted: Thu Apr 29, 2004 3:10 pm
I have several CD-ROMs full of application notes, magazine articles, etc. I am in need of some way to set up a searchable database for these CD-ROMs.
I would like the database to somewhat build itself - i.e. I will have an ASCII file that would include company name and title (for an application note) and then this file could be imported to the database.
I would like to be able to search by date, author, title, magazine title, company name, and keyword.
Does anyone have some thoughts, ideas, or suggestions on how I could do this?
Thank you very much for your time and help. Michael

a while ago, I kept 2x2 inch paperbox database. andvantage: no power requirements, no passwords, no viruses, no new data formats. If it gets cold, burn it.
