cnpack - Free Delphi IDE Enhancement

Ok,  I have been using this IDE Enhancement for my Delphi 7 environment for a couple weeks now.  It is very cool and very practical.  They have compiles for other versions of Delphi as well so check it out.  Comes with source and oh did I mention it was FREE!

Thursday and Beyond
Well, I am home now from E3. What an exhausting trip. I couldn't sleep on the Red Eye coming home so I got about 1 hour sleep in 36. I am more rested up now and ready to head back to work in the morning. Thursday at E3 I spent most of the day on the floor of the Expo. Trying to soak in as much as I could. I finally go to go to the Midway and Atari shows. Midway was terrible but Atari was pretty good. They where giving away the best T-Shirts of the show with the “In the beginning there was PONG” ......

Wednesday at E3
Wednesday was a pretty exciting day at E3. It was the first day the expo floor was open. The biggest thing to note was all the people. They where expecting 40,000 people yesterday and I think they all showed up and more. There where TV cameras everywhere. The expo floor (there are actually 3 floors) was a sea of games and gagets that the vendors wherer begging you to come check up. Here are my quick highlights of the expo yesterday. First the bad: SOE (Sony Online Entertainment) - I was upset with ......

Tuesday at E3
Wow, today was a really amazing day at E3. Today was workshop day. I spent the day going to different workshops. The first session I went to was a discussion on networked media and how it relates to gaming. I then went to a session on game development for cell phones. It was a very interesting discussion. Although I am not planning on doing anything with Mobile computing at this time the information was priceless. The third session was amazing. It was a panel discussion about game designers. The ......

Monday --> Tuesday Morning
Well Monday was a very exciting and busy day. The flight to L.A. was incredible. It was very smooth and relaxing. Ray (the guy I am travelling with) slept 3 hours on the plane. I slept about 3 min. Once we arrived in L.A. we took a trip down to Long Beach. We walked the beach to find something to bring home like a rock, shell or something along that line, but instead I found 2 bamboo sticks and a bounce ball. Humm the bounce ball I don't think is organic. Anyway my kids will like them. Ray and I ......

Going to E3 !!!
Well, can you believe it!? I am headed off to the E3 Expo Monday morning (May 16th) .
