[Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes] As I alluded to a couple of posts ago, I have only recently regained something approaching good health. To get me back on track among other things I have found music to be a great healer. I’ve been playing electric bass and singing with a bunch of guys from work since Christmas and having a blast. Then a few weeks ago a friend in that group suggested I audition for a “proper” band that were looking for a lead vocalist. The long story short is that I took the plunge and I am now lead singer with “5th Quarter”, a covers band here on the North Shore of Auckland in New Zealand where I live.
[Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute] At the end of my last post I described a problem that arises if an object adds handlers to an event and is then destroyed without having removed those handlers. This video demonstrates that problem and also shows a solution provided by the multicast events framework itself.
[Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute] My second post on multicast events is now up, and here’s a video showing the basics. It was also an excuse to get to grips with the video capturing software – CamStudio – (and technique!), which proved to be a frustrating exercise to say the least, but I am quite pleased with the eventual results and plan to do more in the future.
[Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute] The first two canned videos from last weeks preview of Tiburon have appeared on the CDN site. Of the two, one covers some new language features in C++ Builder, but the one of most interest to Delphi developers I think is the one that demonstrates some of the VCL improvements and changes. See if you can spot Nick Hodge’s deliberate mistake. At least, I hope it was deliberate. 😉 More videos and sessions should be coming online soon.
