Delphi: First try on an XSD for .groupproj files

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/31

Delphi introduced the .groupproj files to support MSBUILD.

I couldn’t find an XSD for it, but need to do some fiddling with those files, so I created one. It’s not very detailed, I think it gets most of the definition right.

The checkin is on my BeSharp.net mercurial repository on BitBucket:

Yuko Nakamura – Google+ – How do you search movies? Trick: “Movie poster images by color” #googlesearch #movie #trick

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/31

I was aware of Finally, proof that all movie trailers use the same color palette.

Now I know that movie posters differ there palettes according to the genre of movie.

Thanks Lars Fosdal – Google+. for re-sharing this: How do you search (Google) movies?  

It got me doing some searching myself, and the colour distribution has been researched before too:

Back to the shared post, as it adds genre to the colours:

Trick: “Movie posters” by color on Google Images

  1. Type “movie posters”
  2. Click images  > Search tools > Color

[Movies by Colors]

Some notes on how VMware Workstation/Player “Easy Installs” SUSE Linux

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/30

When VMware Workstation/Player does an Easy Install of SUSE Linux (and most other Linuxes), it does this:

  • mount a CD drive with the autoinst.iso image
  • mount a floppy drive with the autoinst.flp image

For Linux, both of them contain autoinst.xml files to automate the boot process.

It has a few drawbacks including a hardcoded boot partition size and unmount problems, so if you don’t want those, follow the guidelines at How to Stop Easy Install in VMware Workstation.

More Delphi PDF manuals (via: Cape Cod Gunny Does Delphi: The One Manual Every Delphi Programmer Should Have!)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/29

Cape Cod Gunny found the PDF of the Delphi 7 Developer’s Guide (1100+ pages of good reading): Cape Cod Gunny Does Delphi: The One Manual Every Delphi Programmer Should Have!.

There are in fact quite a few more PDF manuals of older Borland/CodeGear/Embarcadero products:

These I like most: Read the rest of this entry »

Delphi: about 3 weeks ago, the XE5 branch was added to the RadStudioDemos repository:

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/29

Too bad the Sourceforge does not do stats pages any more, so you it is a lot harder to correlate project activity with potential release dates any more.

But: about 3 weeks ago, the XE5 branch was added to the RadStudioDemos repository:
