Thinking Creatively with QueryInterface()

Te Waka o Delphi – I soon hope to be releasing “Smoketest”, a testing framework that I have developed over the past few years.

RAD Studio (XE3 Launch?) Event Announced in NZ

Te Waka o Delphi – Just a few moments ago I received an invitation to register for what I presume to be the launch event of RAD Studio XE3. 28th August is the date for your diary! I have to presume this is the XE3 launch because “XE3″ isn’t actually mentioned. For that matter, the words ...

My Trip To Capitola

Marco's Tech Blog – Over the last 7 days I didn't blog because I was quite busy on a business trip to Capitola, California. Here are a few (phone quality) pictures. PS.

A Pain In The Butt

Te Waka o Delphi – This post is one of those classic double-entendres for which us Brits are (in)famous, involving as it does both an actual Pain In The Butt and a euphemistic one.
