I found Prestwood several years ago but I never introduced myself.
My name is Daniel and I've been coding in Delphi on and off, but mostly on, since 1997. At the time, COBOL and BASIC was what I was coding in a client-server environment, before most people even knew what nTier architecture meant. Heck I didn't know, but was doing it.
Someone in another department came up to me, presumably after seeking permission from my manager, and asked if I knew Delphi. I said, knew what? Having never heard of Delphi I said no, but was anxious to do something new, so I was transferred to the other department.
I didn't what the future was for Delphi and it wasn't to be a .Net, however, Delphi has found me and paid me well over the past decade point five.
Take care and talk to you later.
