Borland brings back the Turbo line of products!

Accessible Delphi – Reading this interview brought back some nostalgic feelings. I started programming with Turbo Pascal 3.0, which ran on a Commodore 128D with CP/M 3.0+.

All good things need three tries

Accessible Delphi – There is a saying in Germany: Aller guten Dinge sind drei. This basically means that all good things need three attempts before they’re really good.
