Update - Delphi 8 Arch on eBay contains Delphi 7 Arch as well

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

I saw nothing indicating it on the box, so I finally cut it open just to check exactly what’s in there.

Delphi 8 Architect - includes Delphi 7 Architect

It’s only fair to mention this. The last person who picked up Delphi 8 Architect (with Delphi 7 Architect) got it for a steal… ;)

Haitian Relief Auction Update - $7,292

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

38 items are on their way to the winning bidders. I can fill in customs forms in my sleep now. ;)

I just now realized I completely blew it… I didn’t take a photo of the autographed $99 bumper sticker that I just mailed off… I’ll have to ask the winner to send me a photo of it in a special place.

Anyway, there’s some cool stuff coming real soon now…

Not to get too specific - you’ll have to stay tuned - but they include autographed copies of Turbo Pascal 3 and Delphi!

Thanks for your support!

I found TButton!!!

Can you tell I’m testing if someone will hit the Buy It Now? ;)

Signed books, mouse, stickers, and more

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

I just added two signed books, Xavier Pacheco’s and Steve Teixeira’s "Delphi 2 Developer’s Guide" (my copy) and Danny Thorpe’s "Delphi Component Design" (Steve Trefethen’s copy). Both books were signed by the authors.

I also added two floppy disk sets - Delphi 1, and BP7, David I’s leather jacket and a Borland mouse.

Borland Memorabilia Auctions for Haitian Relief

Santa Cruz Sentinel article

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

"SCOTTS VALLEY — If you are secretly pining over old Borland memorabilia — the classic Pascal 3.0 software still in its original shrink wrap, a Borland varsity letter jacket once reserved for executives or a shiny yellow bumper sticker proclaiming that "Delphi Developers Do It Faster" — this is your chance to bid in an unusual auction and have your purchase support recovery efforts in Haiti."
