Since launching Fireside FileMaker just over a week ago, we've had well over 1000 downloads so thanks to all. Today, we released a new podcast 'Understanding the Development Process' https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/understanding-the-development-process/
Chino Hills, Calif., July 22nd, 2019 — John Mark Osborne and I would like to invite you to join us at the Fireside FileMaker podcast (http://www.firesidefilemaker.com or https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fireside-filemaker/id1473715087) for a series of interesting and, we hope, thought-provoking conversations about everything FileMaker™ from two passionate developers with a total of almost 60 years developing FileMaker solutions.
“Michael and I have created FileMaker example files, written blogs, recorded videos, released example files, presented in public and even published books but we have never had the opportunity to record informal chats about FileMaker, much like you would with a FileMaker colleague. We are excited that this medium will allow us to explore FileMaker in a way we’ve never ventured previously”, says John Mark Osborne.
The first 4 episodes are available on iTunes https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fireside-filemaker/id1473715087 or at the firesidefilemaker.com web site:
Episode 1 - Native FileMaker Technologies
Episode 2 - The Data Separation Model
Episode 3 - FileMaker & Excel
Episode 4 - How to Become a Professional FileMaker Developer
Our philosophy behind these chats is to make you feel like you’re sitting right next to us around a campfire listening to our conversation. It’s casual, sometimes funny but always informative and thought provoking in a way we couldn’t be in a book, blog article, video or example file. Come join us at Fireside FileMaker, listen to an episode and give us your feedback.
I am planning the upgrade to 18, I have 3 questions
1- I will host my own server, as I do now with 11.
We are 9 users, normally not more than 5 are connected. I don’t want to install a Windows server so I will go with a Mac. I am thinking of the basic Mac Mini upgrading memory to 16 GB, is it OK?
2- Of the above 9 users, 4 are occasional. I have 4 FMPA 17 individual licenses.
If I buy 5 user licenses, can these 4 occasional users connect to the server with the individual FMPA 17 licenses, or do I have to buy the 9 user licenses?
3 - I will keep using Super Container, no point in using time to move to remote containers (tons of files)
I will leave the computer that hosts SC as is, I guess that will be no problem (it is the same that currently hosts FMS 11, since load is light, it has not been an issue.
it is a Windows 7 Pro machine.
