If you sign up for FileMaker DevCon as vendor (or attendee?), you may get calls from Conference Exhibition service, Reservation service or other names and they want to sell you hotel rooms on the phone.
This year I already got five such calls! As well as a couple last year for the previous DevCon.
As far as I know FileMaker, Inc, has not contracted any third party vendors to handle hotel reservations.
Please do not book a hotel reservation with any third parties, and be sure to share this information with your fellow developers.
You should either book the hotel DevCon website for the special rate. And if you are low on money, you can always find a cheaper room, e.g. the Monte Carlo Hotel has rooms for as low as $69, but you have to walk a block to the Cosmopolitan.
NICHENICH, Germany (February 23rd, 2016) -- Monkeybread Software Releases IP in menubar v4.5, an application to show the current IP address in the menubar.
This small application runs in the background and shows the current IP address of your Mac in the menu bar. There are options available to customize the appearance of the menu entry. The IP dddress is updated regulary. Switch on the Router option if you are behind a router or gateway. You can still see your local IP address in the menu.
This application is freeware and provided as is.
IP in menubar is an example of what you can do in Xojo using the MBS Plugins and their NSStatusItemMBS class.
Changes in Version 4.5:
Added option to show country flag.
Added option to show notification when IP changes. This allows you to keep a history in notification center.
Added option to show VPN IP.
Fixed a bug for not connected and behind a router.
Requires Mac OS X 10.7 or newer; source code is included. This application shows Xojo developers how to create and update a menu in the top right of the menu bar.
The application is freeware, but contributions are accepted through PayPal.
So far this works well for Mac and Windows. On Mac we get a m4v file (m4a for audio only) and for Windows an AVI file is created. We don't have many options yet, but you can show the preview on any layout window in the position you need.
Coming soon in the next prerelease of our 6.1 plugin. For Mac and Windows in Filemaker 8.5 to latest one.
The only problem is that the tray name is printed specific. To learn what your tray is, you can use PrintDialog.GetTray to see what tray was used in the last printer dialog. This way you can see if your trays are named Tray1/Tray2 or maybe Upper/Lower.
Less than a month left. Most tickets and slots are taken, so if you like to join, be quick!
See you there. If you need an hour or two for MBS related questions or consulting you can of course have a private meeting with me. Please contact me if you are interested.
The PauseOnError Steering Committee, in collaboration with Cleveland-based host firm Adatasol, is pleased to announce the Sixth PauseOnError Conference in Cleveland, OH, Monday, March 14th to Tuesday, March 15th, 2016, at the Metropolitan at the 9 hotel in downtown Cleveland.
Interface. Contribute. Learn. Be a part of your Community.
PauseOnError is a self-organized effort of software developers and consultants who use FileMaker. PauseOnError content is created by the attendees in a low tech and high touch environment, so leave Powerpoint at home and come prepared to share the mic.
Have a topic you'd like to talk about? Visit the wiki page, and add your session to the Schedule. It's just that easy.
Our objective is to provide a valuable and educational forum on which we can all collaborate to grow our community. We took care of most of the details so you an focus your energy on your contributions to the conference. PauseOnError is inexpensive because PauseOnError is a not-for-profit venture. The goal for each event is to cover our expenses and break even, and have some buffer for future events.
We would like to extend an early invitation to you to learn about the event, add your session to the schedule, and purchase tickets for you and your team.
To find out more about PauseOnError Cleveland - Sessions, Tickets, Hotel, and more, visit the conference wiki page!
We will have a MBS Plugin session there about our plugin, features and how the plugin is created and changed development with FileMaker.

So once zombies appear in the US, it's okay to use was for anything
PS: It is not part of the German version, so read english one.
After several months of development we are proud to announce the immediate availability of cubeSQL 5.5. cubeSQL is probably the most stable version we have ever released, it also includes several performance related changes that you'll immediately noticed when compared to older versions. SSL support has been greatly improved and thanks to Tino Gruse from Roth Soft AG we now have a complete and detailed guide about how to Setup SSL.
Do you see something unusual on this menubar screenshot or on the dock screenshot right?
Well, with MBS FileMaker Plugin you can change the name of the app in the menubar and also change the dock icon. Some nice ways to customize your solutions with FileMaker. And for the dock tile you can still use the badge function to show a little number or text. For example like Mail to show the number of unread emails.
For the dock icon you best use a square image with at least 128x128 pixel size. Better you use 512x512 (for retina) and the plugin will fit the image to the right size requested by the operation system. For transparency, please use a PNG file.
For our German speaking clients we have a workshop day:
