  1. Correct! But it also shows the normative power of facts. Everybody has been using their hands to operate the parking brake for decades, hence the popular renaming, which made absolute sense. The new concept did indeed turn out to be a dud, contrary to a lot of other stuff Daimler engineers came up with over the years. It is now something that may be regarded as eccentric (or just plain nuts if it where in a cheap car).
  2. Only German engineers can look at the term "hand brake" and go "Yep! That should be done with a pedal".

    Windows installer: best practices ?

    This is indeed a good question, however I believe it to be a mine field. Especially if you want to be able to deploy your software over all Windows versions that are currently in use. It is kind of a waste of time to find out and implement best practices for installers, when you are actually developing something else, say an MP3 player. Don't forget that, ideally, every customer/user will have to use this setup only once, and your software many times, so where should your time really be invested? I use Inno Script, and I am very happy with it.
  6. Your goal would be to be able to fold away large blocks of code, correct?

    IDE Fix pack for Rio

    AFAIK Andy would rather get no money than having to submit to some of the issues he has with the contract(s) that would come with it.

    @Marco Cantu is reading here. So we just might get some "insider" information soon.

    CrossPlatform uPnP solutions for Delphi

    I've always found other languages to be a good source of inspiration, in recent years especially Python. So this here https://www.electricmonk.nl/log/2016/07/05/exploring-upnp-with-python/ looks like a promising start. Maybe we could turn this into a community project?

    TListView collapse stuff under a header

    I agree with @Rollo62. The TreeView is a bit cumbersome on mobile devices. I have sidetracked this issue for now. As soon as I come up with a solution I'll post it here.

    OSX Debugging Issue - How?

    I get all the logging I need in the PAServer using the regular built in log.d. Just out of curiosity: Why the dylib? If it is your own, just compile it into your program and make it monolithic...the good old Delphi way.
  14. Wouldn't it be easier to render everything on the client side and just transfer the data needed from the server? Some form of JSON should suffice. All controls and their states should be listed and you can build the form accordingly. The hardest part would be the communication between client and server.
