Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #149

09 Mar
  • If you are a registered user of Delphi 2010, you can now download a digital copy of Marco Cantu’s new book, Delphi 2010 Handbook. (From Marco’s Site: “The book covers all the new features of Delphi 2010 for Win32, from Extended RTTI to new IDE features, from Windows 7 support to the improved DataSnap architecture. This is a brand new book, there is no overlapping material with the Delphi 2007 Handbook and Delphi 2009 Handbook (which you can consider buying along with this book in printed or electronic format).”) I think you all know by now how great Marco’s stuff is.  You can also order a hard-copy of the book as well from Marco’s site.  (Marco now is using CreateSpace as his publishing center.  The CreateSpace guys are actually here in our current building – I play basketball with a couple of the guys that work there….)
  • Anders apparently can’t control himself and has put a few more items up for auction, including an autographed by Allen Bauer copy of Delphi 1.
  • Michael Swindell sent me this link today:  The Secret Origin of Windows or as he called it “How Turbo Pascal Shaped Windows 1.0”.  Read and enjoy.

    Logged in using the provided link, but couldn’t find Marco’s book anywhere. Can you provide a hint as to where to find it?

    Paul-Jan –

    If the account you are logging in with has a Delphi 2010 registered against it, it will be the very first link.

    Is that the case?

    It works fine now, thanks. Somehow we didn’t end up at that page after login yesterday.

    I can’t reach Marco Cantu’s Delphi 2010 Handbook. I am a registered Delphi 2010 user but, when I click on your link, I bring up a Delphi Downloads page that has no relevant content. What am I doing wrong?

    Tom –

    Are you logged in with the same EDN account with which you registered your D2010?
