Writing Complex Calculations, The Magic Question, Refresh Objects, and more.

Writing Complex Calculations

Another free Matt Petrowsky video takes on handling addresses using complex complications. Learn how to search the internet for Perl, JS, and node.JS files, and how to easily modify the scripts you find to work with FileMaker.  I especially like the part where he shows how to use a text editor to modify lists for use in FileMaker.  Sweet. You'll also learn about regular expressions to modify text, something FileMaker does not support.

Starting about 19 minutes, Petrowsky shows how to bring Javascript code directly into a web viewer and process it (even though it he ends up not using it).  There is plenty more, so put time aside and watch his video.  And subscribe to Matt's service while you are there.

The Magic QuestionI highly recommend this Audio book (I just finished listening):  The Magic Question: How to Get What You Want in Half the Time

Based on scientific techniques, this book teaches you how to communicate with your subconscious mind in positive ways.  Powerful stuff.
