With this little unit I snipped together you can add close buttons on tabs and also rearrange them with drag-and-drop on a standard TPageControl component.

I recently started to work on a database client using the incredible Zeos components
. Unfortunately though bigger queries caused the application to freeze which is not very appealing to any end-user. Due to performance issues I was forced to use data-aware components, and passing DataSets or DataSources across threads causes nasty access violations.

To meet the standards of 2019 AE System Health Monitor has been rebuilt from scratch. However the initial public release is not yet planned, here's a little teaser to get some interest.

There were several times when my team had to do a port scan in a commercial environment to discover rouge or lingering devices on the network. I always had troubles finding a portable, commercial-free, easy-to-use, fast and trusted application so I decided to write my own.

I was recently working on a project where I had to work with huge numbers (>32 hexadecimal digits). Since not even the largest integer type was able to hold these, I had to come up with a solution to be able to do arithmetic functions on them.

I recently managed to crash my development machine so hard that not even a recovery was possible. After the OS the next thing to install was Delphi 7 and I had to face with the usual compatibility issues.
Had enough of researching, it's time to put all necessary steps at one place to make this 15-year-old software to work on a modern system, like Windows 10!

I already made this mistake several times. UAC is turned on and I launch a Command Prompt to perform some activities. However, some actions will eventually fail as we don't have Administrative privileges.
In the past I launched a new Command Prompt (elevated, this time) and navigated back to the original folder to try again. Today I proudly present a script, which will do this for you!

Recently I was assigned to a task where I had to collect folder sizes (and do some math with them) on large number of servers. Talking about real file servers I quickly met the famous "Invalid number. Numbers are limited to 32-bits of precision." message. Here's how I solved it.

Providing feedback for the user about the status of our scripts is really important. We would like to know if everything is fine - or if not, why? Let me show you some tricks which can take the well-known ECHO command a little bit further!
