XNA Tutorial 1 translated to Delphi Prism

There was a couple of interesting comments to my question regarding options for writing games in Delphi.
The XNA Game Studio 3.0 online documentation contains tutorial projects. I thought it would be cool to create a Delphi Prism version of "Tutorial 1: Displaying a 3D Model on the Screen". This means translating from C# to Oxygene, [...]

Language Integrated Query seems to be the biggest feature of upcoming  C# 3.0. Searching for LINQ resources I have found The LINQ Project whitepaper written by Don Box (that used to love COM) and Anders Hejlsberg (The Architect). [...]

Delphi ASP.NET HttpHandler Demo

Delphi 2005 does not provide support for creating ASP.NET HttpHandlers out-of-the-box, but it is not so difficult to create one:-)
The HttpHandler is a class that implements IHttpHandler interface, which contains only two members:
