blog.free

Me, Myself and Delphi – It's about time that I should assume that I lack the time to spend on this blog.It was fun while it lasted (except for the past few months), but now every weekend that comes and goes and sees me not doing something on this blog is a weekend of pain. This year, my life changed a LOT. I'm no longer ...

Portable Delphi 2007 for Win32 - Part I.5

Me, Myself and Delphi – It's been a while since I started this project and, despite the long period with no posts, it hasn't been forgotten. But a few factors helped to prevent me from completing it as of yet. First I was in bed for a few days from some nasty flue, then I got up before being ready which eventually led back ...

Portable Delphi 2007 for Win32 - Part I

Me, Myself and Delphi – Ever wanted to carry your development environment with you on a flash memory stick? Well, using Thinstall you can, albeit it comes with a hefty price tag of 5.000 USD... Maybe now that VMWare has bought the company they'll wise up and release a cheaper personal version! I would like one, and have ...

More Disk Space Tweaking...

Me, Myself and Delphi – Or, how to keep your C: drive mean and lean and still don't throw away those lengthy patches and cached install files...This is not entirely related to Delphi as the techniques used here are more general and thus you can extend this to your own liking. It is however triggered by the fact that I hate ...

Help needed with PDF Processing Library...

Me, Myself and Delphi – After two days of searching, clicking through hundreds of links, downloading tens of files, trying, browsing, etc, I decided it was about time to give up and ask for help! I need to process some PDFs, mostly "black-and-whitening" them, that is, converting color boxes and text into black and white. ...

Even slimmer Delphi for Win32 2007

Me, Myself and Delphi – Following on previous posts, I decided to remove the Windows SDK documentation from my Delphi 2007 installation. The main drive was for the added space: with those 250 MB less I would be able to fit the whole C: into a compressed ghost image file with less than 2 GB and that's with Windows XP SP2 + ...

Get rid of another 343 MB...

Me, Myself and Delphi – If you installed the Help Update, be aware that you now have an extra cached (yes, duplicate!) 343 MB worth of data in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\{15EDF4CD-698A-4E52-8278-2E25143AD95B} (change to wherever you have your user profiles and I don't know where that is in Vista, ...

Delphi 2007 SP3 - Some quirks

Me, Myself and Delphi – On my Help Tests, I ran around some minor quirks and I decided to blog about them as well! (Whoa: 3 whole posts in one day? Don't worry, that's probably 3 more months without posting so you'll have enough time to recover!) Don't get me wrong, these are minor quirks, but it's also the 4th release of ...

Delphi 2007 Improved Help (?)

Me, Myself and Delphi – If you recall from previous posts (yes, I know it has been a while, but I've been busy!), I was frankly disappointed at the so-called "Improved Help". The major flaws Back on release of Delphi 2007 for Win32, the major flaws I found were the following (listed in no particular order, but numbered for ...

Delphi 2007 for Win32 SP3

Me, Myself and Delphi – This week I've been a bit sick. Nothing serious, just a nasty cold with the nasty side effect of going through paper tissues like there was no tomorrow. So, rather than trying really hard to stay focused on debugging tasks at hand when I had to interrupt every 30 seconds to wipe my nose, I decided ...

Windows Live Writer and Pascal Code Formatting (updated)

Me, Myself and Delphi – Since Steve Dunn has updated his WLW add-in, I checked it and found out that it still doesn't use the fixed pascal definition file that I sent Actipro some months ago. So, if you want proper pascal syntax highlighting, download his control, follow his instructions and afterwards copy this file over ...

The best 330 MB of my C: drive...

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, I hate to be negative about stuff, I really do, but I just can't help it. Having fought so many times with a lacking help system, I finally decided it was time to uninstall it. It's pretty useless to me as if I want MS docs I'll search for them on the net and they will be more up to date. So, ...

No comments...

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, I lied! I have one comment: I did press the feedback link, even though the question looks almost a joke! :) BTW: The Void stamp and yellow highlighting is just me playing around with SnagIt! :)

Delphi "killed" by VB6? WTF?

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, I read in TWM's blog that Delphi is listed in the 12 languages that never took off. Since I can't comment on either page, I decided to comment in my blog... I can only say one thing: that article reminds one of the languages mentioned in it (the one that starts with brain...); that ...

Command line: do you still use it?

Me, Myself and Delphi – Well, I do and for quite some years I've been using JPSoft's 4NT. I have some nice batch files, custom prompts, custom functions and it has a whole lot of built-in commands, variables and functions as well. But, not only do I find myself doing less actual command line stuff, I sometimes get a bit ...
