Embarcadero MVP list updates

Delphi Code Monkey – Embarcadero has released a new list of MVPs. I'm very happy to be on that list, because Delphi has been my favorite language, and favorite IDE since it was first released. To prevent misunderstandings let me just point out that an MVP is an independent community member, not an employee of ...

StackOverflown

Delphi Haven – So… I was finally broken: I created a StackOverflow account. Annoyingly, a certain individual in particular is waaaayy too fast in answering most Delphi questions (genuine expertise + quick on the button = cheating, surely?)… so I started picking off Access ones instead (easy points ...
