Why can’t I find Foremay 1 TB 2.5″ SATA SSD prices online?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/31

The 2 TB SSD units have just been announced, but anyone any idea what the older 1TB SSD units cost?

Nette foutmelding op “Pakket zoeken – MijnPakket”

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/30

Soms zijn storingsmeldingen zo ingewikkeld.

PostNL laat zien dat het ook eenvoudig kan:

Door een storing toont MijnPakket tijdelijk geen actuele zendinginformatie, excuses voor het ongemak. De bezorging van de pakketten heeft geen last van deze storing.

Ofwel: het pakje dat ik zoek is onderweg, en wordt afgeleverd. Als de site weer werkt kan ik zien hoe laat en waar.

Immensely insightful answer on “syntax – Is C++ context-free or context-sensitive?” at Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/30

Thanks Warren Postma for this Google Plus mention: both the question and answer are incredibly insightful.

And indeed: the code from the answer is not possible in with Generics Delphi (:

Impossible: Property using Generics in Delphi. Interfaces/classes/methods/fields/constraints/type inferencing are

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/30

Just in case you wonder about Property using Generics in Delphi, they are not possible.

Thanks David for mentioning it, Hallvard for mentioning it even earlier and Rudy for confirming it.

These are supported with Generics in Delphi:

All of the supported aspects are linked to articles from excellent authors. There is far more on the internet about Delphi and Generics, but those are a good start.

Thanks Malcolm, Phil, Barry, Hallvard, Jolyon and many others for posting all those articles!

Note that this is not possible in C# either, Julian Bucknall organized a chat and explains why, but there is a workaround which I might try to port to Delphi in the future.

BBC News – BMI: Does the Body Mass Index need fixing?.

Old BMI: 23, new 22.

If it is worth anything, that is.
