Extreme Delphi…

Call me crazy… but I suppose I’m just flirting with disaster…  So by paying homage to all the extreme sports out there, I’ve just uploaded a new patch.  I guess you can call it Extreme Delphi.  Just like extreme sports are not for the faint of heart, so too these patches should be approached the same way.  [...]
