25932  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Article on Borland/Delphi/C++ Builder split-off on: February 23, 2006, 04:49:19 PM
Borland recently announced they are going to sell their development products (Delphi, C++ Builder,etc) to another company.

Many of the big programs on this site (Screeenshot Captor for example), are made with C++ Builder, and I am a very big fan of the tool, which can make building big windows gui apps a joy compared to lower level windows user interface coding.

Interview with Borland on the split-off:  http://www.adtmag.com/article.asp?id=17981

ps.
I think we will be having a c++ builder contest sponsored by borland in the upcoming months..  stay tuned!
25933  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / Re: Revitalizing the Reviews - Everyone Read in Please on: February 23, 2006, 04:04:59 PM
great question.
since we are trying to improve the layout, i have asked reviewers to simply write their reviews in anything they like, word, notepad, etc. but do NOT do any formatting.  ie dont bold, center, justify,etc. take screenshots but either just add them simply to the text or just add a link like [screenshot1.gif goes here].  do not use hard linebreaks to format text to 78 characters, use a text editor that supports wordwrap.

in other words, write it in something that will make it easier for us to format for final output when we determine the final output formats.

there are programs designed specifically for moving installed software from one place to another.. can't remember names off hand but they do exist.  maybe someone else can think of some, otherwise i will try to remember.

having said that, it's always somewhat of a crapshoot, and you should give strong consideration to uninstall then reinstall in desired location.

For example, I just came back from training for a specific Electrical Engineering software called SKM (which I was really impressed with from a software standpoint, I'd write a review, but no one would care here!) and this software costs thousands of dollars.  Just imagine, if an open source program came out that was truly as good as this program, this entire company would be out of business...and quickly at that!


this is definitely getting off topic, but i'd just like to add that i disagree with this.

i'm learning more and more over time about the price that has to be put on TIME and SUPPORT.

it seems that companies who buy these thousand dollar software products are buying the support system associated with a company as much as they are buying the software itself.  maybe someone like sentinel who does enterprise level purchasing can jump in here, but it seems to me that a company would rather pay $5000 for some software and be confident that if they have a problem they will be able to pick up the phone and get some tech support, than pay $0 and then end up with no one to contact for help.

this is why youll see a lot of the open source business models that are basically all about suppot.  the software is free, but you can buy a support contract for major money..

25946  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: 18 Monospace fonts comparison screenshot on: February 22, 2006, 10:21:22 AM
thanks for the screenshot koreth, at 12pt the Consolas really looks nice, but becomes a bit blurry as it gets smaller.

the main motivation for these bitmapped fonts is to make something that is monospaced and pixel-level tweaked for a very specific small point size.  so they aren't appropriate for tasks where you might want larger fonts.

seems the server is still having some troubles.. i've been working witht he tech support people for the last day, constantly, on the problems, which they seem to be having a very hard time identifying and fixing.

just wanted to let you know i am working hard on this and we will get it sorted. hopefully when it's over we will have an even faster and better tuned server.  thanks for your understanding.
