This is the most important line in your CV:
"Led the successful shipping of four versions of RAD Studio"
I, for one, remember only too well what things were like between the time of Delphi 7 and later when you became employed by CodeGear. It was obvious to me that you had a big influence on the process. In the one release, we finally got some specific attention paid to fixing long-standing bugs. I bet that version (D2007?) sold really well. I have a feeling we're going to be on D2010 for a while, and that's ok, because it was a solid release.

As a developer I'd rather use careers.stackoverflow.com as a central CV database for developers. You choose whether to make it public/searchable or not.
StackOverflow is targeted at and used by the sort of companies and people interested in the same kind of things I am when it comes to developing software.
Of course, when you are looking for a non-developer position in software development (or any other field of interest), linked in may indeed be a better choice. Not in the least because many HR departments have found their way to linked in as well.

Thunderbird was indeed not the first to pick up on 'attached'. Pegasus - Window's oldest living emailer - has had it for several thousand years and IMO implements it better. A modal dialog appears when you click 'Send' with a message along the lines of 'Didn't you mean to attach something, stupid?'
Thunderbird's reminder is a bit too discreet and polite, and I have overlooked it. Somebody said that there are add-ons that do it more robustly, but I haven't gone looking for them.
Incidentally, if you are in the market for TB add-ons, I do recommend Nostalgy very highly if you sort mail into folders.
The views I express here are entirely my own and not necessarily those of any other rational person or organization. However, I strongly recommend that you agree with pretty much everything I say because, well, I'm right. Most of the time. Except when I'm not, in which case, you shouldn't agree with me.
