I developed a middle-ware for a client to facilitate communications between an RS/6000 running AIX 3.0 and two electronic scales in Visual BASIC for DOS. The middle-ware acted as a translator, converting the billing information from the scales and presenting it in a format the accounting software could read. Later projects included a myriad of utilities for web publishing and system maintenance written in both Visual BASIC for DOS and Visual BASIC for Windows. I used my database development skills in Paradox for Windows and ObjectPAL to build a full scale, multi-user point of sale system for a reseller of postal uniforms.

The application enables ACT to dial into Prairie Systems, inc., down load mail-box billing and usage information.
