Mmm... Nice RSS

Found a very nice RSS newsfeed reader today. Looks really schmick AND is written in Delphi :-)

If only I had RSS capabilities on my Blog. Perhaps I should look for a new home....

Bye Bye IE

I've recently switched to Mozilla Firebird for all my browsing needs, and so far I like what I see. Its lean, quick and not from Micro$oft :-)

Also, its name is the same as my favourite Open Source Database.

Open Letter to the Delphi Community

Borland have announced that the next version of Delphi (code named Octane) will be concentrating on .NET. I will be following the Borland newsgroups with interest to see the fallout after this one. I am sure there will be mucho heated debate, considering their initial intention was to ship Octane with .NET and Win32 support.

Personally, I'd prefer to see two solid releases rather than a hurried one targetting both platforms. I can also understand Borlands decision to target the .NET framework first, considering they already have a Win32 dev tool.

Curses to them for making the announcement today though, as its hard enough keeping motivated on a Friday. Now I'll never get any work done ;-)
