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!
