1982 ==> 2003 developper , DBA and system administrator on HP 3000 (C,Pascal,Cobol )
I begun to develop on Windows with VC++,VB ( 4,5,6).
Since 2003, i used VC# and VB ( less currently ) and SQL Server 2000,2005,2008,2008 R2.
I prefer to develop with SMO and SQL Server Data Access (SqlClient).
With the disappearance of my company in 2004, i stopped to work ( thanks to my pension ) and i begun to post mostly on the american forums ( more rarely on the french ones )
