2005 wasn’t much of a blog year for me (boy is THAT an understatement!). Anyway, it’s a new year and I’ve decided to try and start over and begin blogging again. I’ve got quite a number of things I want to write about so hopefully I’ll find the time to crank out at least a few entries each month. No promises on that but I’m planning to give it a shot at least. To kick things off, I’ve written up an article that describes a new Delphi command line switch that is used to configure the IDE to startup with a single personality. This new switch, -p, will be quite handy if you want tailor the default configuration for the kind of development work you do. You will need to be prepared to roll up your sleeves and do some spelunking in the system registry, but that should be nothing for anyone smart enough to be using Delphi for development, right? The article is a little long for a blog post so I’ve published it here: Delphi Startup Times and The Kitchen Sink I hope you find this useful. Happy New Year! Mark
