Saturday in Sydney.

Tonight, March 28th, I’ll be flying out from Sydney to Melbourne for the first of my two ADUG engagements.  Tomorrow night, I’ll fly to Brisbane for the second ADUG symposium.  Finally on Friday night I’ll be back in Sydney.  It looks like I’ll be free all day Saturday.  If anyone is going to be in Sydney this [...]

Delphi, Installers, and Gangstas

Travel time.

The following is a snap-shot itenerary of my up-coming trip to Australia and (hopefully) India.  If you’re in or near these cities while I’m there, be sure to look me up, or better yet make sure to come to the ADUG Symposia.  I’ll be speaking in Brisbane and Melbourne at the ADUG 2007 Symposia on March [...]

Seventy Five Point Seven Million Dollars in 2006

“Borland Reports CodeGear Sales As ‘CodeRage’ Rally Rolls“ I certainly don’t feel ‘beleaguered’!  As a matter of fact, $75.7M dollars is pretty darn good. What is funny is that throughout all the divestiture proceedings last year there were a lot of the “arm-chair quarterbacks” out there “speculating” on the Developer Tools Group, now CodeGear’s revenue.  [...]

When it is ready.

The following is a editorialized quote from Ben Smith, CodeGear CEO;  As we’ve been wrestling all those last minute details to the ground, and getting far less sleep than we should, Ben stopped by my office the other day.  It was a short conversation since I was in the midst of tackling the issue du jour, [...]

Well here it is, another Saturday and I’m sitting at my desk waiting for the latest build bits so I can do some testing on patching, updating, installing, etc..  One thing we’ve added to the upcoming Delphi 2007 release is a new “Check for updates” process.  No longer will you have to always keep up on reading [...]

Beta blogging

I’m sure by now many of you have seen some of the various references to a new unprecidented program called “BetaBloggers.”  Usually when we conduct a field-test it is under strict non-disclosure where those that participate agree to not discuss the content of the program or even reveal that they are even involved.  However, in [...]
