I have been porting many of my DataSnap REST services from using dbExpress for its database access, to take advantage of the FireDAC data access framework.

When you click on this, it will show you a list of [...]
A new version of EDN Mobile has been launched, and along with it comes a few new features that moves it from being simply a clone of the http://members.embarcadero.com website, to instead starting to harness some of the features found in Android smartphones.

Thanks to a totally unsolicited email from EDN community member Whiler, I am pleased to announce that EDN Mobile now supports the French locale.

Now I don’t mean that CodeRage II will be a free for all, with topics such as ‘Migrating to Visual Basic 6′ and ‘Writing an Object Persistence Framework in COBOL.NET’, but that free CodeRage admission is now available to everyone.
If you haven’t RSVP’ed to this party yet, I’d strongly urge you to do so now. [...]
Well, I’ve reached the halfway point in my quest to increase awareness for mens health issues, so thought I’d provide a quick update as to my progress so far. Here is a photo which captures the current state of my furry little lip dweller.

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ll be growin a Mo. That’s right I’m bringing the Mo back because I’m passionate about men’s health and the fight against prostate cancer. Why?
