Are these "vintage" articles up-to-date?
« on: November 16, 2013, 09:11:38 PM »
Mark,

Since the dates are at least a year old in one or two cases and 5 years old in others, I wondered if they are still evergreen, relevant, etc.?

Also, what's your policy on sharing these articles? I don't want to infringe on your copyright.

I have the same question too as I was able to download some stuff as old as 5 years ago. Of course, lots have already changed but the fundamentals seem to still be there. If you plan on using them anyway, spinning or a complete rewrite should be in order.

Hi Deb,

Do you mean the posts here in the forum or some of the archived articles in the membership?

Thanks,
Mark

A lot of the articals are uptodate as they were posted but there maybe a few that Mark might of put up for us as a few membersmight have asked for them. Any of the articles that are here really beed to be re written as they are being used many. You can then see if the articakes are of any use or not.

I meant some of your long, thorough articles here on the forum on various topics. Can't remember what I was reading the other day. If I remember which one, I'll let you know so you can see what I mean.
