From Pro to Starter – A Bit of a Shift

TDelphiHobbyist – So, I finally made the jump from D2010 to Delphi EX2.  I moved to the Starter edition which might seem a bit odd – but it’s not, I assure you.  Only two or three weeks ago Delphi was, primarily due to a decrease in time that I can spend with it, doomed as an active member of my list of hobbies and I ...

A Simple Fix For My Broken WUBI

TDelphiHobbyist – I updated my Wubi Ubuntu 10.04 install a couple of days ago ... and it broke.  That was really annoying.
