  • Today is Delphi’s 18th Birthday.  I'll always wear it as a badge of honor that I was there at the launch at SD ‘95 in the Moscone Center.  Quite a privilege.  Thanks to everyone who has made Delphi such a great tool to use.
  • I am signed up for the RAD Studio Mobile Preview Webinar.  Are you going to attend?
  • Colin Johnsun reports that the JVCL has migrated over to use GitHub.  I consider this good news.  While I prefer Mercurial, Git is a Distributed Version Control System, and DVCS’s are vastly superior to server based systems like SVN.  First off, they are designed to branch and merge with ease, meaning that coordinating development and contributing changes is way, way easier (the process of “pull requests” that Colin talks about).  If you aren’t using a DVCS, you don’t know what you are missing.
  • In case anyone cares, my entire tweet archive is now online here on my site.  Here’s the tweet that started it all.
