Delphius and Basicus Stop for the Night

Delphius and Basicus were on a long journey, requiring several days travel.

They stopped for the night at a campsite beside the trail.  It had obviously been used as a campsite previously, as there were many signs of previous inhabitants.

Delphius and Basicus made camp and slept comfortably, for their journey was long and they were tired.

In the morning, Delphius began cleaning up the remains left by previous users of the site. 

“Why are you cleaning up another’s mess, Delphius.  They should have done it.  Why are you doing it?” said Basicus.

“Because someone else will want to use this site in the future, and we should do what we can for those future residents,” said Delphius.  “Those residents might even be us on the return journey.”

Delphius and Basicus continued on their journey.  Basicus remained puzzled, but Delphius knew the wisdom of his actions.

Flotsam and Jetsam #115

  • I put up a poll on Google Plus asking what the greatest all time Delphi freeware/open source plugin/framework was.  Thought you might like to vote.
  • Work continues apace as we continue to prepare for Delphi Developer Days.  I’m happy to say that there will be six folks attending in Baltimore from my employer, Gateway Ticketing.  I’m really looking forward to seeing so many Delphi developers from all over the world.  Sign up today if you haven’t already.
  • Remember, the price for the Coding in Delphi Bundle remains at the low price of $54.99 (You can pay more if you want. <g>).   That’s a savings of just over $25 when buying both individually.  Thanks to everyone who has bought the bundle already.
  • Jason Southwell is a friend of mine and a fine contributor to the Delphi community.  His company, Ideal Software, is looking for a Senior Developer.  Sounds like a good opportunity to me.
  • Shameless Plug:  My wife is an artist and writer.  She has a fun coloring book designed for all ages called “Color the Cats”.  Give it a look.
  • My latest book, Dependency Injection in Delphi, is still in the works.  I know I said that a while ago, but it always takes 90% of the time to finish the last 10%, right?
