"The State of Geneva’s Information Technologies Centre (CTI) has selected J2EE and Borland for all future local government development projects."
“The ease of implementation of the Borland Enterprise Server solution, its standards compliance, open infrastructure (CORBA) and excellent JBuilder integration gave it the edge.”

"Chris Patterson from Borland gave a presentation at the Austin .NET User Group last night. I must say, I’m thoroughly impressed."
"I’m simply blown away with how much value Borland is delivering with this release."
"Thanks Borland! You guys really get it!"

Thanks for having us, Scott!
Cell phone virus? Yep, the first one is out. At least it won't spread to far, only about 30 feet at a time. To get infected you have to have a cell phone running the Symbian OS and have BlueTooth on, and be foolish enough to accept an incoming transmission that you didn't initiate. Noone would ever do that, right?
My own speculation goes like this... When these things get really intelligent they'll be infecting your camera phones over the cell networks and be keeping an eye on everything through your own lens. Talk about Big Brother...

A little background: A buddy of Loren Hudziak's (a Borland employee) is a Navy pilot and was flying Tomcats off the Constellation when it was in the Gulf. Loren sent him a care package, and in it was one of the Made in Borland stickers. This is what he sent back. Just an FYI, though: That's not a Tomcat. It's the new F-18A Super Hornet. Be sure to click on the image for the full impressive view.

Found an excellent specimen of the female Black Widow today. Big one too - about 1.5 inches long. The bastard was hiding right under my hot tub lid.
Not having had any experience with spiders I took a moment to figure out how to kill it for sure, without having it run away and hide. These things are apparently shy, and since it was now hiding tucked underneath the lid, I decided to go with a tool that happened to be handy - my long lighter for the BBQ. Perfect long flame grilling the poor sap. Bad spider, no donut.
Toasted Black Widow anyone? ;-)
Come check out Together for Visual Studio .NET version 2.0 at this event in a week.

If there's a key, there's a crack. It may take forever, but sometimes you get lucky...
Chad's post reminds me of a friend of mine. Super expensive computer equipment at this company. State of the art security to get in through the door.
Just one problem... Computer rooms like these are raised off the floor, with a crawl space underneath. The floor is made out of a bunch of tiles - some of them loose.
Fundamentals of cracking puzzles... ;-)

Simon Kissel just posted this in kylix.non-tech:
I'm about to release CrossKylix, a free (as in beer and speech) toolkit to integrate the Kylix compiler into the Delphi Windows IDE.
This project was created for people who wish to develop cross-platform web/server/middleware applications with Delphi. Up until now doing this required you to have a seperate Linux installation (either on a dedicated box or inside VMWare) to recompile your project for the Linux platform. With CrossKylix this is no longer needed - you are able to build your project using the Kylix compiler from directly inside your Windows Delphi IDE, without the requirement of a Linux system.
After a few nights of coding, the project is mostly finished now and probably will be released this weekend.
I would be nice to have a few betatesters now to check if there are any compatibility problems I haven't thought about etc.
Requirements for Beta-Testers:
- Delphi 6 or 7 - Windows 2000 or XP - Kylix 3 (either installed or Installation CD). Other Kylix versions are welcome for testing, too.
The testers should be at least be a bit skilled in Kylix development, so they are able to give decent bug reports.
If you are interested, please drop me a mail [kissel at computerman dot de] , and I'll send you the current beta.
Register today for a 1-day training event with Falafel Software. The training takes place on June 14th.
If you register by the end of tomorrow you save $100 on the $399 fee.
Falafel's CaliberRM training
With 82% of all cost of fixing bugs related to bad requirements, this is a no-brainer event.

John Lam took the picture below. I'm borrowing it... ;-)
It's real! No photoshop involved here. Mark told me about it at a party at TechEd. I believed him even without the picture. Those who know Mark will know that if it's a crazy stunt like this, then it's real.
BTW, he did manage to buy a ticket without getting mugged. ;)
PS: Thanks Mal for the reference!
