gopherThough not as popular as FTP or http, the gopher protocol is implemented by many browsers and numerous other programs and allows the transfer of files across networks. In some respects it can be thought of as a hybrid between FTP and http, although it tends not to be as good at raw file transfer as FTP and is not as flexible as http. The collection of documents available through gopher is often called "gopherspace", and it should be noted that gopherspace is older than the web. It should also be noted that gopher is not getting as much attention as it once did, and surfing through gopherspace is a little like exploring a ghost town, but there is an interesting VR interface available for it, and some things in gopherspace still have not been copied onto the web.

For existing MS Access or SQL Server databases, you'll have one or more requests: 1) add new features to your Access database, 2) Disaster Planning and/or Recovery of your Access or SQL server database software, and 3) speed it up!!! The last request is very common. With many Microsoft MS Access databases - not enough attention is paid to how to maximize Access performance on your office Lan / Wan network. This is especially true when your Microsoft Access database was originally a single user desktop database and then became multi-user.

Initially planning to develop your custom database software using Microsoft MS Access is very practical. Most Toronto companies and business professionals already have Microsoft MS Access database software (and the Microsoft MS Office VBA / Macro programming language software) already installed, on their pc's, with Microsoft MS Office (for Outlook, Excel, and Word Interoperability thru MS Office VBA / Macro software). We can also update your old Visual Basic (VB) program, and We've also helped Mac OS X+ computer users to benefit from custom Microsoft MS Access database software!

While Access can handle any type of business application, it has a ceiling related to: 1) the number of concurrent users, 2) the location(s) of the users, and 3) the amount of data it can efficiently store and retrieve - in which case other Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft MS SQL Server, the Microsoft .Net framework (asp.net - visual basic .net - c#), or classic ASP website programming will need to be employed (see when to use Microsoft MS Access vs. MS SQL Server).
