Movie #121 - Using reFind to fix System.UITypes warning

LearnDelphi.TV – In this video we take advantage of the fact that reFind can add units to the uses of a unit and we make use of this to remove (in bulk) the  "Inline function 'MessageDlg' has not been expanded because unit 'System.UITypes' is not specified in USES list" compiler hint.  Watch it here.

QC does this logon call to http://qc.embarcadero.com/coBugCGI.exe/soap/ICDSReportPublicInterface

The Wiert Corner – I drafted this in 2014 and given the recent QC news: I was quite shocked to see that the Embarcadero QC client logs in over HTTP, not over HTTPS, especially since it passes the password in plain text. QC does this logon call to http://qc.embarcadero.com/coBugCGI.exe/soap/ICDSReportPublicInterface: ...

Why I care about QC and the Delphi community.

The Wiert Corner – QC now forwards to QP and it is no longer possible to see your older open QC posts. Since the RAD Studio IDE still appear to report issues to QC – how can we now keep track of our submitted issues? When will the internal error reporting in RAD Studio file reports to QP instead of QC? [WayBack] ...

List of “Plain Text Offenders”; hopefully someone publishes a list of https offenders too

The Wiert Corner – This Plain Text Offenders site lists email screenshots of organisations sending back plain-text passwords they kept on file (According to Robert Love, Idera/Embarcadero should be on the list as well). It is one of the most horrible things that can be done for a password. Business and IT do many ...

Simple Mobile FireDAC App

The PodCast at Delphi.org – The DocWiki has a great mobile tutorial on building a mobile To Do app with FireDAC and SQLite. I find I usually build it a little differently though, so I thought I would share my code here.
