    Delphi job

    NCR is still running ads for a "Senior Delphi Software Engineer." I interviewed with them and they are pretty good people. But, they talked mostly about coding and wanted me to take a coding test (a timed coding test, lol). So, it didn't sound "senior", more like "staff coder." If anyone here considers themselves a programmer, they might find some good Delphi work there. A quick web search will bring up their job ad. NCR used to stand for National Cash Register and I remember doing things with their hardware, way back when I first started in the computer industry. Probably a great company to work for. Again if you view yourself as a coder or programmer, it's probably a good opportunity.

  4. Hi Dave, Not sure of how to code your procedure I get some googling and found on StackOverflow "How to make TIdStackLocalAddress work on Android?" where both you have the same code listed and Terry Peterson made a modification to your code. I then found on https://www.atozed.com/forums/thread-798.html how to use the procedure. The result was a success using both your procedure and Terry's procedure. I will run with this as long as Android leaves it alone. You made my day. Thank you.

    I've just dug out the old K-Software "renewal" offer, appending it here just for info.
  6. I am reluctant to write the trivial case, but it won't execute if just no exception bubbles up to that point, perhaps because it is caught (not necessary handled properly) at some deeper level. Just curious: What problem are you actually trying to solve?

    Delphi 11.3 is available now!

    The What's New presentation made a point of the number of issues that were fixed for 11.x versions - nearly 3k of them. The amount of issues highlights the need for a change in their development process. The marketing driven release process needs to come to an end, and a quality driven release process to replace it. There are many good developers in the team, but there is not enough time/resource to ensure that quality is the primary goal. There also seems to be developers that write code that really is sub par, but no process that corrects it. Instead, it seems to be, "let's add this cool new feature for the sales guys and release it on this pre-determined date to make sure marketing can maximize their campaigns". That needs to change.

    Not just the cast ... Result.X := Result.X !
