Thanks to all who donated items, and thanks to everyone who bid, blogged, and participated in the auctions!

I blame Allen… MORE STUFF!!!

Friday, March 5th, 2010

I can’t help myself… I have to list the coolest items that people find…

Allen walks in to a meeting late yesterday afternoon and holds up a Delphi 1 box that he found in his office - he finally realized we’re moving… :) :) :)

Anyway, he says "I’ll sign it!"… OK, I’m sold… Here you go:

Delphi 1 autographed by Allen Bauer!

While we’re at it, I blame myself as well. Deep inside a drawer I found a pristine BRICK of "Delphi Developers Do It Faster!" bumper stickers.

Just imagine what you could do with 50 stickers!!! I didn’t actually count, the number of stickers is an estimate. Could be more, could be less… Judge for yourself in the picture at eBay.
