  • Delphi Book of the Week:  Cary Jensen has a new Delphi book out:  Delphi in Depth: ClientDatasets.  It’s really good.  I tech reviewed a few of the chapters (a lot fewer than I should have, but hey, I helped…) and can tell you that it is thorough, complete, easy to read, and certainly the best reference out there for the most important component for Delphi database developers.  I recommend that you buy it.
  • Lachlen Gemmell emailed me and let me know about his new Delphi site, TIndex.  According to Lachlen, it’s a “It's a Delphi specific web directory site. Right now the content covers language features introduced since Delphi 7 but I'll be expanding that over the coming months as well as transforming the site from the static layout it is now to a dynamic site that will accept link contributions from the community. “
  • The Hudson/Jenkins Drama continues, and gets more interesting!  What to do?
  • The indefatigable Uwe Schuster has an interesting list of QualityCentral feature requests that you might consider voting for.  (Remember, you up to have 10 votes per item, so don’t hesitate to use them).
  • I love the pure genius of this.
  • This is a very interesting thread on the Delphi forums.  A guy named Nils Dzubiel posted that he has a way to get Crystal Reports to work with Delphi 2009 (yes, the thread is that old.)  He posted his message in November of 2008.  Since then, there has been a steady stream of people posting a reply to his original message.  I can imagine people looking for ways to talk to Cristal reports with Delphi, finding the thread via Google, and then responding in hopes of Nils seeing it and responding.  It looks like Nils hasn’t been back to the newsgroups since early last year, so I’m curious if these pleas are answered. Anyone know what happens if you post a follow up to this two year old message? 
  • Wow.  Impressive. How does she do that? Is that all hers?  Is there something in there?  How did she get into the car to drive to the photographer’s?  The mind boggles.
