Good tip --Art Carpenter (talk) 21:12, 18 January 2015 (CST)


I agree - good tip. But before we promote perhaps Mark would consider adding a sentence or two more about what this does for those SAS users who are not as internet literate. Specifically grabbing and displaying the contents of an external web page. --Don Henderson (talk) 19:20, 19 January 2015 (CST)


The concept is a good tip, but I think it needs rewriting with some more explanation about what the blog entry has to say. Is this really a tip about DS2 or is it meant to be a tip to read the blog? When I first saw this tip, and followed the link, I was struck by the fact that the words of the tip are lifted straight from Mark's blog. The problem I have is that this tip is appearing on the sasCommunity.org Main Page, not on Mark's blog. So I think that sasCommunity.org Tips need to be worded as if it is a community tip, not a personal one. That means writing in the second or third person, not the first person. I would suggest replacing "I" with "Mark Jordan" then "he", and "my" with "his". Then the tip is one about what Mark discovered about DS2. It then serves a double purpose of highlighting what DS2 can do as well as promoting Mark's blog - which I suspect is an additional motive for submiting this tip. Perhaps Mark would care to contribute to an article about the DS2 procedure (and the HTTP package), so it could be used to support this tip, too. - Cameron (talk) 03:29, 20 January 2015 (CST)

Good points, I agree --Art Carpenter (talk) 07:59, 20 January 2015 (CST)
The writing style seems very informal (both an advantage and disadvantage). -- Charlie Shipp (talk) 01:00, 2 May 2015 (CDT)

I think this direction needs to be encouraged; can it move forward? -- Charlie Shipp (talk) 21:08, 18 May 2015 (CDT)


I clicked on his link and it looks great--very professional. Promoting to READY. -- Charlie Shipp (talk)
