A little bit of zis, etc.

I haven’t blogged in quite a while… I have been busy at work and at home. And now I’m with the family for an extended week-end in the mountains.

So, this post will be more like a pot-pourri of little tidbits a la Nick Hodges.

  • It’s kind of irritating when in Delphi’s editor the parenthesis matching goofs and counts those embedded in strings:
  • Format('I have %d closing )', [n])
  • You don’t appreciate the comfort of doing software in a software realm, with pretty stable APIs, some sort of object model and a stuff called specifications, until you begin to deal with hardware devices that can make darwinism look like immobilism.
  • Delphi is back in the top 10 of the TIOBE Index this month. I guess it is a good sign. Don’t know if one can read too much in it…
  • Certainly, there is more to do to bump Delphi’s name recognition. My son is back home for the holidays from his college. He started this year in Software Engineering at a well known university. He has yet to hear about Delphi (except by myself at home).
  • It’s certainly time to wish you all very happy holidays. Enjoy time with you family and take care!
