I recorded a video to show how quick coding your products in your databases, spreadsheets etc can help you find those products in an easy and efficient manner.
A quick code is merely something easy to remember to replace search criteria that is not so easy to remember.
I am demonstrating my use of these for products within my Quick Sale Program which I use on a daily basis, but the idea is suitable within any application that finding data quickly is important.
Here are a couple of pictures I thought I would share for the younger viewers in the crowd..
MY FIRST CELL PHONE
This phone could slide into holding/connection bracket under my truck seat and handset would plug into a jack on my dashboard as well as being carry-able. BTW – NOT light
It was actually a very good phone – reliable and clear.
MY FIRST COMPUTER
No Hard Drive, No Floppies – Just a cassette deck that would load and save programs ( analog of course ) You had to fast forward to get to the program or data you needed! I taught myself Visual Basic on this dinosaur.
Visicalc (excel precursor) an amazing program that I think made computers the most useful to most people and businesses.
MY FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA
Good old Logitech!
376 x2 40 px and grayscale only
(link for info from Wikipedia: FOTOMAN)
One of my first Printers (about $2000)
This was a behemoth of a printer – about 30 lbs and relatively noisy
My Aluratek 10 Port USB Hub ($44.83 CDN)
I was running out of ports for my USB cabled equipment, and my old 4 port USB hub stopped working…I purchased this 10 port hub on Amazon.ca and it is a great piece of equipment.
This hub also includes a power supply if you prefer not to take power from your computer connection.
The hub has 6 forward facing ports, 2 on the back and 2 on the top that swivel up for use when needed.
