Music As Medicine

[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.

Tiburon Preview Videos Coming Online

[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.
