My blog about HTML5 Builder has been elementary and positive so far. But I've had problems–I just haven't mentioned them yet. Well, it's time to do that before going further. I'm using the product on two different machines and am having two different experiences. Two Machines My main development machine is an older custom-built desktop[…]

While still working with a PHP web server application, let's create a simple component, install it, and modify the Hello World app to use it. The tutorial says to always put components into the RPCL folder and separate them by company name. So if you get third-party components, they would show up as sub-folders in[…]

The first application I'll create will be similar to sample ones I had tried in RadPHP. They were simple PHP tutorials and they worked–somewhat. I had some issues, but don't remember whether it was getting all the right libraries in the right place or whether it worked from some locations or browsers or what. In[…]

It's been a year since my last blog entry and while I've been busy writing Windows applications with Delphi, I've kept an eye on web technologies.

While working on a project accessing a slow web service, I found myself needing to extend the timeout of the HTTPRIO component. The web service, when executed straight from a browser, would happily take as long as it needed to before successfully completing. But my Delphi application was timing out.

I had no idea infections could cause a sunburn-like rash, but that's what happened on my stomach after going home from my appendectomy. I thought a heat-lamp had been too strong on me during surgery or something. Anyway, my bandages were leaking and not looking good, so Saturday morning, my wife drove me to the[…]

Well, let's turn that sad face from the last entry upside down! Or, at least make the best of my current situation. Saturday morning, I awoke early with a horrendous stomach ache. It was hard to move, I did everything slowly and I couldn't find a comfortable position, so I got up. But that didn't[…]
