2. Windows 7, Delphi 7 and Political Correctness

With my installation of Win7 complete, I moved on to installing my favorite software. Delphi 7 was high on my list but, when I went to install it, Win7 went all "politically correct" on me.

This post is about how I dealt with the problem.

4. It's Done: Borland is No More
A trip down memory lane: Borland 1983-2009
Micro Focus buys Borland. The decline of Borland is now complete. The once legendary software company is no more! Okay, for those of us that worked at Borland and those that loved their development tools, it pretty much was over years ago. For me, I'm still a big fan of the CodeGear development tools, especially Delphi and Prism, but the fanatical culture and clarity of purpose was over when Philippe Kahn left. I've been following Borland ever since I left the company in 1995 and every time I heard of a stupid move, I cringed. I'm sure all of us who have watched the decline of Borland over the years have a list of stupid Borland moves.

5. Stamp Out Spam

How to fight back against spam and reclaim your inbox. As you may know, the volume of spam messages sent across the Internet has reached epidemic levels. Some industry experts estimate that three out of every five e-mail messages that are sent today are spam. The spam epidemic is costing companies, professionals, and individual users considerable amounts of time, money, and resources.

What is spam, and what can I do about it? Spam is generally defined as an unsolicited mailing, usually sent to many recipients. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send. Most of the costs are paid by the recipient or the carriers rather than the sender. Some effective methods for preventing your e-mail address from being captured, sold or abused by spammers in the full version of this article. Click the title to read more.
