I don’t know Russian, but I suppose I think I’m pretty good at recognizing Cyrillic characters and assuming it must be Russian. But I checked with Google Translate and it tells me that “???? ??????? ?????” is in fact Russian for “Network Fool game.” The…

I’ll be honest, if you described AlignMix to me I might fall asleep, but after seeing the video of it in action I find I am trying to find scenarios to use it! Simply put, AlignMix is used to divide and map territories. But wow, it does an amazing job at…

I’ve never asked Bob if he actually has a PhD, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he does in being Awesome. Either-way, he deserves the Dr. title for all the great work he does on his site, speaking at conferences and in his writing. Currently Bob is enjoying…

There are a handful of people who I believe to be key to the developer community, and Cary Jensen is one of them. He’s been a rock in the community since the beginning. Even before Delphi he was instrumental with the Turbo Pascal community. Cary consults,…
